The Ventoux Breakaway is ideal for time-crunched climbers who want to bag an ascent of Mont Ventoux, plus enjoy one more day of riding – and make it back to work on Monday. There is a basic 2-day option, plus a 3-day option that sees a Ventoux climb sandwiched between two guided rides in the heart of Provence (longer options also available). This is a great introduction to this beautiful part of southern France. Ventoux is an infamous Tour de France climb, but even if you aren’t a fan of cycle sport, this mountain presents an awesome challenge and, unlike the big cols of the Alps and Pyrenees, Ventoux is smack bang in the middle of ‘civilisation’, and there are virtually no other mountains of any size nearby. This makes it simple to access and within easy reach of Avignon, Nîmes, Montpellier, Arles, Aix-en-Provence or Marseilles.
