Mont Ventoux literally means ‘Windy Mountain’ and the name speaks for itself. To add – it has been nicknamed by many as ‘The Bald Mountain’ due to its interesting, barren Provencal landscape. 

The lengthy climb travels up to 1912m and is widely known throughout the cycling world as being a real physical challenge. Tough, yes but the elation and incredible feeling atop will certainly make It all the more worth it.
