Next to Ventoux, this isn't really what you'd call a climb, but nice and pleasant and very quiet roads. Did this from Bedoin to loop to Malaucène to tackle the Giant of Provence!

Very nice road but be careful, at certain times of the day there can be a lot of traffic. Very easy, it goes up on the big plateau when you are able to climb the Ventoux

Très belle route mais attention il peu à certains moments de la journée y avoir beaucoup de trafic. Très facile, ce monte sur le grand plateau lorsqu'on est capable de monter le Ventoux

A little more difficult than through Malaucène, but for cyclists who are able to climb the Ventoux, the col de la Madeleine is only a formality.

Un petit peu plus difficile que par Malaucène, mais pour les cyclistes qui sont capables de grimper le Ventoux, le col de la Madeleine n'est qu'une formalité.

Ridden this climb on t july the day of the TdF. Nice short but beautiful climb. Is not much if you have to climb the Ventoux but best to pick up if you're in the area.

Deze klim op t juli op de dag van de TdF gereden. Leuke korte, maar mooie klim. Stelt niet veel voor als je de Ventoux op moet maar best wel een aanrader om mee te pikken als je in de buurt bent.

Wavy climb between Bedoin and Malaucene which never gets any steeper. Because the climb is undulating you can go full throttle and recover a bit during the flat parts. The road goes through a landscape which was full of pine trees 30 years ago but was completely destroyed by a big fire and is now recovering. Beautiful views towards Bedoin.

Golvende klim tussen Bedoin en Malaucene die nergens steil wordt. Omdat de klim golft kan je hiet vol gas op knallen en een beetje herstellen tijdens de vlakke stukken. De weg loop overigens door een landschap dat 30 jr geleden vol pijnbomen stond maar door een grote bosbrand volledige werd verwoest en zich nu aan het herstellen is. Mooie vergezichten richting Bedoin.

Not to be confused with the "big" Madeleine in the Alps. From Bedoin you can go to Malaucene via the Ventoux or this col.
The road is busy in rush hour and otherwise fairly quiet. If you leave Bedoin you just shoot down and then it goes up in waves. Beautiful views towards the Dentelles de Montmirail and over the orchards below.
When I went here the first time with the team bus to Malaucene it was to refuel, the tanker hadn't been in Bedoin yet so there was no diesel and when you drive here with a burning light you don't feel very comfortable ...
For me this is a short ride if I have cycled a cingle or worse the day before, just relax, light pressure on the legs and back to Bedoin for a croissant and cappucino at Phil's.

Niet te verwarren met die "grote" Madeleine in de Alpen. Vanuit Bedoin kun je naar Malaucene via de Ventoux of deze col.
De weg is druk in de spits en verder redelijk rustig. Als je Bedoin verlaat schiet je even naar beneden en dan gaat het golvend omhoog. Mooi uitzicht richting de Dentelles de Montmirail en over de boomgaarden beneden.
Toen ik de eerste keer met de teambus hier naar Malaucene ging was het om te tanken, de tankwagen was nog niet in Bedoin geweest dus er was geen diesel en als je dan met een brandend lampje hier rijdt voel je je niet echt gerust...
Voor mij is dit een kort ritje als ik een cingle of erger gefietst heb de dag ervoor, even relaxen, lichte druk op de beentjes en weer terug naar Bedoin voor een croissant en cappucino bij Phil.
