The tourist service at Bédoin :

One of the most demanding stages. After the legendary ascent of Mont Ventoux from the Southern face to the summit, an easier descent begins to reach the Sault plateau and its lavender fields.

A 15-kilometre ascent with more than 1,000 metres of uneven and challenging terrain begins now! But the breath-taking panoramic view quickly makes you forget the difficulty. The rolling track leads you to the legendary Chalet Reynard south of Mont-Ventoux.
You now find yourself at the heart of the UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve and its alpine scenery. After another ascent, you will reach the crest of the east side of Mont Ventoux to begin your descent to Aurel.
The route then climbs up to the Sault Plateau and its lavender fields, for a smooth finish.
