Ride Nice 2 Barcelona via Ventoux

Bike Adventure

This ride is not for the faint hearted, leaving the beauty of Nice behind as we head into the alps and towards Ventoux. From here we head south along the Mediterranean coast before crossing the Pyrenees into the cycle heaven of Girona before finishing up in Barcelona


Departing from Nice we head north to hunt down the infamous mount Ventoux. Not before spending a night in the Verdon Gorge. Once the challenge oif Ventoux is complete we will begin to make our way back to the Mediteranian via Avignon. We shall spend a full day cycling the coastline between Montpellier and Perpignon. After our relatively flat day we head into our second mountain range, the Pyrenees and take on our biggest climb the col d'Ares. We then spend the afternoon descending fabulous roads into the cycle mecca of Girona. Finishing off our ride exploring the fabulous roads of this region, ending our ride on the beach in Barcelona
