Conquering France's Mont Ventoux

Standing over 1,900 metres tall, the Mont Ventoux looms large over France’s southern Provence region. From the local pastry chefs who name their cakes after it, to the monks who grow vines on its slopes, everyone here is fascinated by the mountainous landscape. The Mont Ventoux is also a legendary stage of the Tour de France. Every year, both professional and amateur cyclists take on the challenge of pedalling to the top. On arrival at the summit, the view over Provence is well worth the effort.
