Ideaal om warm te fietsen voor de Ventoux. Wat minder fijn als je die net achter de rug hebt ;)

Climbed on 3 July 2021 during the cycling holiday with the village club (83920 La Motte). Nice col and cycling relatively easy. Mid-summer on this road less traffic than I thought. Good road surface.

Beklommen op 3 juli 2021 tijdens de fietsvakantie met de club uit het dorp (83920 La Motte). Lekkere col en fietst relatief gemakkelijk. Midden in de zomer op deze weg minder verkeer dan ik dacht. Goed wegdek.

To get from the campsite at the foot of Mont Ventoux from Bedoin, I crossed this pass.

Runs nicely and is a nice warm-up for what came later.

Om vanuit de camping aan de voet van de Mont Ventoux vanuit Bedoin te komen, kwam ik over deze pas.

Loopt lekker en is een fijne opwarmer voor wat later kwam.

Good mountain to warm up for Mont Ventoux. Good road that is pleasantly situated in the forest. Can be taken along if you are here anyway.

Guter Berg zum Aufwärmen für den Mont Ventoux. Gute Straße die angenehm im Wald gelegen ist. Kann man mitnehmen wenn man sowieso hier ist.

Nice warm-up on the way to Bedoin. Quiet beautiful road. If you want to go from Malaucene to Bedoin (or vice versa) take this one anyway.

Lekker opwarmertje onderweg naar Bedoin. Rustige mooie weg. Als je toch van Malaucene naar Bedoin wil (of andersom) deze vooral ff meepakken.

A logical connection between Malaucene and Bedoin. Easy cycling! At the bottom of the foot lies a nice cycling café

Een logische verbinding tussen Malaucene en Bedoin. Fietst makkelijk weg! Onderaan de voet ligt een leuk wielercafé

Did this hill after climbing Mont Ventoux from Bédoin followed by a descent to Malaucène, to reach Bédoin again. Not especially worth making a detour to include this small col.

Road in the Pine forest which makes it possible to join Malaucène to Bédoin thus making the loop with Ventoux.
Not difficult and not long, in 2014 I climbed it on a large plateau, but it is often stiflingly hot.
Attention it circulates.

Route dans la Pinède qui permet de joindre Malaucène à Bédoin permettant ainsi de faire la boucle avec le Ventoux.
Pas difficile et pas long, en 2014 je l'ai monté grand plateau par contre il y fait souvent une chaleur étouffante.
Attention ça circule.

Last week this climb on the way to the Ventoux. Nice and warm cycling before the real work begins. Here is still plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery and relaxed with friends to talk before each for sight on the Ventoux. The climb is short and not too steep. You can even use the outside track.

Vorige week deze klim mee gepakt onderweg naar de Ventoux. Heerlijk warm fietsen voordat het echte werk begint. Hier nog volop tijd om te genieten van de mooie omgeving en ontspannen met vrienden te praten voordat ieder voor zicht de Ventoux op gaat. De Klim is kort en niet al te steil. Kan zelfs op het buitenblad.

Connecting climb between Malaucene and Bedoin, especially if you climbed Mt Ventoux from Bedoin and descend via Malaucene. The first part can be very busy, especially in summer, only after the turn (left = straight ahead) the calm returns. Doable with a little power on the outside blade.
This climb has been used many times by the TdF and is also on the program for 2021.

Verbindingsklim tussen Malaucene en Bedoin, zeker als je de Mt Ventoux vanuit Bedoin hebt beklommen en via Malaucene daalt. Het eerste stuk kan erg druk zijn, zeker in de zomer, pas na de afslag (linksaf =rechtdoor) keert de rust terug. Met een beetje power op het buitenblad te doen
Deze klim is al vaker door de TdF als verbinding gebruikt en staat ook voor 2021 op het programma.

Already done a few times before the climb of the Mont Ventoux from Bedoin. Ideal climb to get in the rhythm anyway.

Al enkele keren voor de beklimming van de Mont Ventoux vanuit Bedoin gedaan. Ideale klim om toch al in het ritme te komen.

Also on this side it is busy during rush hour, the curves are a bit shorter than from Bedoin and the climb is a lot shorter.
My first time was after a tour via the Dentelles and I met a French cyclist from Bedoin, together we stomped uphill and although I had to work hard, he was pleasantly surprised by my pace; especially since I am a flatlander not born in the mountains.
The view is better on the other side, if you want a power climb then this side is the best choice.

Ook aan deze kant is het druk tijdens de spits, de bochten zijn iets korter als vanaf Bedoin en de klim is een stuk korter.
Mijn eerste keer was na een rondje via de Dentelles en ik trof een Franse fietser die uit Bedoin kwam, samen stampten we naar boven en alhoewel ik moest aanpoten was hij prettig verrast van mijn tempo; zeker daar ik als vlaklander niet in de bergen ben geboren.
Het uitzicht is mooier aan de andere kant, wil je een powerklim rijden dan is deze zijde de beste keuze.
