Say salut to the mountains of France

Looking to cut your teeth on one of Europe’s most iconic mountains this year?

If you’re a keen road cyclist looking to take your riding skills to the next level, our holiday Le Ventoux a Velo could be for you. Based in the South of France, our tour takes in the best that Provence has to offer and gives a great flavour of the big mountains the pros call their playground.

En route, you’ll enjoy the breath-taking Gorge du Verdon, Europe’s answer to the Grand Canyon, as well as get the chance to ascend the famous ‘moonscape’ summit of the mighty Mont Ventoux. We guarantee this will stimulate both the legs and the soul and provide an unparalled sense of achievment in the saddle!

But don’t take our word for it, here’s what past Skedaddlers have to say…

This was my first cycling trip with Skedaddle and it met all of my expectations, as well as stretching me to achieve more.” Dave, Gloucestershire

The Gorge de Verdon was challenging but the views and descents were spectacular.” Keith, Wales
