The Tour de France is coming to Mount Ventoux

Mount Ventoux has been a popular challenge for cycling enthusiasts for decades.

It's official – the course of the Tour de France 2016 has been announced! Road cycling enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that the mythic Mont Ventoux will be the setting for a summit finish next year.  And even better, the summit finish at Mont Ventoux will take place on the French National Day, the 14th of July, also called the Bastille Day.

Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected that day, to watch one of the hardest – or maybe even the hardest – of all the mythical Tour de France climbs. Probably everyone having ever watched the Tour de France or having an interest in cycling knows the Giant of Provence as well as the Tour excitement and tragedies that have made it famous, like the collapse of Eddy Merckx in 1970 – who still won the tour!

So to all cycling enthusiasts out there – save the date and take this great opportunity to come and visit Provence. Take this awesome challenge and climb the most famous and feared mountain of the Tour until its finish line at 1909m just a few days before the professional cyclists do. Get up early on the 14th of July  to watch the Tour de France from the roadside on the top of Mont Ventoux before finishing the day beneath the glorious fireworks celebrating the Bastille Day!
