Cycling Mont Ventoux and the Gorges de la Nesque in Provence

I can honestly say that cycling in Provence is always a delight, but sometimes we do a new ride that just makes my heart sing & leaves me feeling as if I’m grinning ‘from the inside out and that’s just how I felt after doing this route earlier this week.

Continue reading here for another one of Julie’s adventures on two wheels. This is a family that seems to like climbing hills on their bikes! Their route on this particular day is no “Sunday ride” they decided to cycle Mont Ventoux from Sault to Chalet Reynard, the descent to Bedion and then the gradual climb back to the “lavender capital” (Sault) via the Gorges de la Nesque. Now that is cyclist heaven.

Julie Whitmarsh

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
