Cycling Incredible Hills and Roads in the Luberon
By Vaucluse Dreamer:
Last week Andy and I were sitting at Menerbes overlooking the view when two people on electric bikes pulled up beside us and were trying to identify the villages on the hills opposite. We got chatting, and they explained that they had just hired the bikes and one said how wonderful it was and that she would now be riding a bike until she is 100.
They commented on how much more they felt they were seeing of the area, just from being on two wheels, rather than in an air-conditioned box, just trailing from one place to another. Their sheer delight was plain to see as they cycled off up the hill to carry on exploring.
Cycling Luberon Roads
The popularity of electric bikes has exploded in the last decade, making cycling a possibility for a large population. The Whitmarsh family is much too fit at the moment to consider electrical assistance for their bikes, but the time may come. And, what a joy to continue riding the incredible hills and valleys of Provence’s Luberon. In this post, Julie and Andy explore hills and more hills on their way to Simiane La Rotonde and then up to Saint Christol Plateau, towards Revest Du Bion.
