The Giant of Provance
La Route du Ventoux is located at the official start line for the climb of Mt. Ventoux from the village of Bedoin. The shop is staffed by English speaking bicycle experts equipped with every conceivable accessory for a safe and, no more than necessarily uncomfortable, climb to the summit. Better still they specialize in bicycle rentals from entry level Hybrids to high-end carbon road bikes. Hybrid rentals start at 15 Euros for one-half day and range to 350 Euros for 15 days on a carbon road bike. Bicycles come with a helmet, computer, pump and a repair kit and (for an extra fee) can be delivered to you on your arrival in Europe. We had the pleasure of an afternoon with the owners and staff of La Route du Ventoux after summating Mt. Ventoux and thoroughly enjoyed their company while observing them assist numerous customers. We recommend La Route du Ventoux without reservation to anyone planning a bicycle trip in Provence.
