Lyon to Marseille September 2020
Scenic and challenging cycle between Lyon and Marseille
Cycle over 500km
This beautiful ride has it all! From the gently rolling sunflower-lined roads south of Lyon, to the vineyards, gorges and lavender fields of Provence, this is a diverse challenge full of hilly, scenic cycling – even without the infamous mountain in the middle!
Mont Ventoux (1912m), known for equally good reasons as the ‘giant of Provence’ and ‘windy mountain,’ is one of the most famous climbs in Tour de France history. Its reputation as one of the toughest climbs in the sport is well- founded; the wind and heat on the barren, exposed upper slopes add to the relentlessness of the climb.
While Ventoux is undisputedly the main challenge, there is little flat along the whole route, and it’s the landscapes and variety that round out the experience. You will reach Marseille with an unforgettable sense of achievement!
