Tring Velo Club – Bedoin Mont Ventoux – Cycling Trip

Tring Velo Club visit Bedoin for their annual cycling trip to take on the Mont Ventoux

We are just back from a successful tailor made cycling trip hosted by Bike Lodging for the Tring Velo Club at the beautiful Domaine de Pins between Crillon Le Brave and Bedoin in the shadow of the Mont Ventoux.

At the Summit of Mont Ventoux 1912m from Bedoin 1617 m elevation gain over 21,8 km

Bike Lodging recently had the pleasure of hosting a group of 28 cyclists close to Mont Ventoux this weekend, some of whom became members of the Club des Cingles, by climbing the Mont Ventoux three times in a day. The Domaine, dominated by the impressive peak of Mont Ventoux, surrounded by spectacular grounds, is a perfect location for groups of up to 30 people. It can be rented self-catered, or as in this case, Bike Lodging can arrange catering and hosting services, to take care of you during your trip. In addition the price for a group like this is considerably less that those found when using one of the local hotels.
