Anyone can do it, right?

€415 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 our third annual Ventoux social rides weekend on May 14-17, 2020. It's designed for riders of a decent fitness but of all abilities – sportive riders, leisure riders, groups, solo riders, friends, ebikers, couples, all ages. You can ride the classic TDF route from Bedoin, safe in the knowledge that there's no conceivable way you'll be slower than me (check last year's Strava if you don't believe 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 out to the Gorges de la Nesque for anyone who can hang around for a few hours on the Sunday. 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 14 to Sunday, May 17, 2020.
** You can hire an e-bike if you need an extra boost. Discount and road transport available for non-cycling partners.
