The route sets off from the market place and then, at both the beginning and the end, follows the same route as the Pavillon Rolland circuit. After cycling through the ochre landscapes, and the hamlets of Les Baux and Sainte Combe, the gradient increases sharply, and the single-lane track narrows as you ride through the Combe de Canaud and Combe de Clare valleys, until you reach the forestry house at the place known as “le Rat,” just a stone’s throw from the Chalet Reynard. Then a technically challenging descent leads you along zigzag bends, via the forêt de Cèdres and the Combe d’Ansis, back to Bedoin.

In short

  • The ochre site of the Demoiselles Coiffées
  • Bédoin and its charming hamlet Les Baux
  • Discovery of the south face of Mont-Ventoux: combes, forest, jas

  • During hunting season, wear brightly coloured clothing, make yourself known and respect the signage put in place by the hunting party.

  • If you come across a herd of animals, go around rather than through it and respect safety regulations concerning livestock guard dogs.
