About the Challenge
Three and a half days of cycling in the beautiful Provence region of France. The highlight on the Saturday:
Become a member of the exclusive Cinglés Club and climb Ventoux not once but three times in 24 hrs!
With 3 traditional routes starting from Bedoin, Malaucene and Sault, you will cycle aprox 136km with a total height gain of 4381m. An epic challenge for those looking to push themselves.
Not up for all three ascents? join us for just one, it's still just as impressive taking on a 'classic' Tour de France climb!

Camaraderie and Support
