€395 based on twin/double share. There is a €100 single supplement – if you are happy to share a twin room, we can match you up with another solo rider (of the same gender) so you can avoid the supplement.

Calling club riders, cycling groups, couples, singles, men, women, young, old, semi pros and weekend potterers – you're all welcome. 
We're holding a Ventoux social ride weekend on May 23-26, 2019. Our 2018 weekend was lots of fun and we had riders of all abilities – both sportive riders, leisure riders and even first-time road bikers. So we're going to do it again in 2019, riding the classic TDF route from Bedoin. You're all invited, safe in the knowledge that there's no conceivable way you'll be slower than me. We're again organising this weekend in partnership with Gerry and John at 44-5 Cyclng Tours, local Ventoux specialists. It's a fully supported weekend: three nights' accommodation with breakfasts, a warmup ride on the Friday to size up the Giant on the horizon, and then a Ventoux climb on the Saturday. We'll also have a further self-guided Sunday morning ride for anyone who can hang around (it'll be a long weekend in the UK). There's also a welcome meal on the Thursday. Single rooms, airport/station transfers and bike hire all available for a surcharge. Just bring your climbing legs**.

Save the date: Thursday, May 23 to Sunday, May 26, 2019.
** You can hire an e-bike if you need help or if you're a non-cycling partner.
