A must for everyone who is somewhat familiar with the Tour de France. It is a single mountain in relatively flat terrain which make the views from the top magnificent. The beginning of the climb is shallow and inviting but after a few km, Mt Ventoux shows what it is really about: steep and relentless. And with one flattish exception, it stays steep and becomes even steeper near the top. Mt Ventoux is the mecca for all cyclists. You will definitely share the pain with others.
