Description Mont Ventoux
Visit climbbybike's special website, dedicated to the Mont Ventoux.

This side of the Mont Ventoux is actually the little brother of Bédoin and Malaucène side. If the legs are not optimal yet, you can already practice from here. Already in trouble here, then you better train another year before you take the other sides.

Not that reaching the summit via Sault is just a piece of cake. The last six kilometers, after the Chalet Renard, are the same as those from Bédoin. The difference is that these six kilometers from Sault far the hardest, while they are considerably lighter than the forest part from Bédoin.

Still, this climb interesting. Sault is quite a nice place and you have a beautiful view on the back of the Ventoux, without seeing the top though. Just outside Sault you take left on the D164. You're definitely on the right path although the climb, which officially starts in Sault, immediately drops 65 altimeters here. You'll have to win them back later. Do not worry, because in Sault you’re already at 760 meters altitude. What follows is lethargic climbing, first between the open fields, and after a few kilometers, between the trees. It never gets really steep. At the contrary, after some 12 kilometers, the climb turns into a long piece of false flat until you reach the Chalet Renard. From there, climbing gets serious.
