What a beautiful route, including the continuation to Villes sur Auzon. Magnificent views over the Gorge de la Nesque. Nowhere steep. The whole route is newly paved. Beautiful road surface.... read more

What a beautiful route, including the continuation to Villes sur Auzon. Magnificent views over the Gorge de la Nesque. Nowhere steep.
The whole route is newly paved. Beautiful road surface.

Wat een prachtige route, inclusief het vervolg naar Villes sur Auzon. Schitterende uitzichten over de Gorge de la Nesque. Nergens stijl.
De hele route is nieuw geasfalteerd. Prachtig wegdek.

Not because of the percentages, it is nowhere steep, but just for the natural beauty you should ride Gorges de la Nesque. You come for the Mont Ventoux and this you take as a gift. What a landscape!

Niet vanwege de percentages, het is immers nergens steil te noemen, maar alleen al om de natuurschoon moet je Gorges de la Nesque rijden. Je komt voor de Mont Ventoux en deze neem je er als kadootje bij. Wat een landschap!

This climb is done for the viewpoint at the top (overview over the Gorges) and for the long descent towards Villes-sur-Auzon with many beautiful views. The climb itself is not much compared to the surroundings, but is therefore doable for non-trained cyclists. The road on the other side of the summit is better than here, but still acceptable.

Deze klim doe je voor het uitzichtspunt op de top (overzicht over de Gorges) en voor de lange bijtrapafdaling richting Villes-sur-Auzon met veel mooie uitzichten. De klim op zich stelt vergeleken met de omgeving weinig voor, maar is dus wel goed te doen voor niet-getrainde fietsers. De weg ligt er aan de andere kant van de top beter bij dan hier, maar blijft zeker acceptabel.

From Sault there are several ways towards Bedoin as another starting point for climbing the Ventoux.
Do you want relaxed ride choose the route through the Nesque. The percentages say it all, a nice climb with beautiful views and nowhere steep. The road surface is not smooth in some places but what do you want in France. Remember that on busy routes, the asphalt gets more attention. advantage for cyclists is therefore little traffic.
The descent to Villes sur Auzon is deliciously long and you arrive this way well warmed up in Bedoin.

Vanuit Sault kun je op verschillende manieren richting Bedoin als andere startplaats voor het beklimmen van de Ventoux.
Wil je relaxed rijden kies dan de route via de la Nesque. De percentages zeggen genoeg, een lekkere klim met mooie uitzichten en nergens steil. Het wegdek is op een aantal plaatsen niet strak maar wat wil je in Frankrijk. Vergeet niet dat op drukke routes het asfalt meer aandacht krijgt. voordeel voor fietsers is dus weinig verkeer.
De afdaling naar Villes sur Auzon is heerlijk lang en je komt op die manier goed opgewarmd aan in Bedoin.
