PostSubject: Mont Ventoux + video !   Wed Jul 09, 2008 4:00 pm

Next week I start my cycletour, during which I will climb Mt Ventoux.

My questions are:
1, in a day how long is open the shop(s) and the restaurant open ?
It will be Saturday when I cycle up (more times).

2, Can I (and where) buy there cyclejersey with Mt Ventoux on it ? In Bedoin or Carpentras ... ? (or at the top ? )

Thanks for the answer:
Gabor

I hope I will have good weather and not too brutal hot.

You have to start as soon as possible in the morning
Last year it was 35° at 14.00-15.00
In Bedoin, shops are open from 08.30-09.00 to 18.30-19.00
Small shops are closed between 12.30 and 14.30
Bakery are open earlier, may be 06.30-07.00
Restaurants are open from 12.00 to 14.00 and 17.00 to 21.00
If you are coming back in the late evening it's better for you to book a table in a restaurant, because they are all quickly full.
See www.bedoin.org
You can buy at tourism office a book to collect stamps
me be you could mail to [url]office.tourisme.bedoin@wanadoo.fr[/url] to have informations about cycle jersey
Saturday 19th is wine day in bedoin.

Thanks :-)
I meant when the shops / restaurants on the top of Mt Ventoux will close (?) :-)

But the opening are also useful infos, when to start.

(Now I read, it will be 27 degrees Celcius :-) )

Does the wine day mean that there will be a lot of people there - I think :-)

Thanks for the infos:

Yes,
for the wine day, all the village is closed
the main street is full of wine shops
it's the big party

for the top, I don't know, it depends of the weather
me be all remains closed because of the wind

but I beleive that nothing is open before 10.00 and all is closed after 18.00 or 19.00
I'm not sure but I think there is no restaurant at the top
but yes at Chalet Reynard (6 km from the top)

www.clubcinglesventoux.org (there is an english version - click on the flag)

note that now there 4 ways to reach the top (3 that you want to do and the last one via "la route forestičre du Massif des Cčdres"

Thanks,
Yes, IL will do that 3 climb and would like to be the member of that club.

it seems it is suggested to reserve place for the camping.

I have that paper where I have to stamp from the Club.

Dear Etienne,
because I can change 2 and 3 days as I start my tour, what do you think, is it better to cycle Ventoux 2 days after vine day (on Monday), or Saturday is OK ?
(if weather is not a reason, because it would be the same - maybe)

Thanks:
Gabor

PS: I could start 2 days touring from Nizza and after that travelling to Bedoin.

Only the main street (500 m) in Bedoin is closed and wine day only begins in the evening 19.00.
With bikes there will be no problem.
Just may be, when you will coming back from your 3th climbing, you have to take left (3km before Bedoin) and you will reach Bedoin by the road from Flassan instead than by the road from Ventoux. There will be big panels with the deviation.
Monday is market day and the same road is closed from 07.00 to 14.00

Hi Gabor,

in Bedoin thera are 3 of 4 campsites.
I'll staying in "Camping Municipal La Pinčde" near the swiming pool. All camping should be "Complet" or "Full" but normaly there are still some free spaces. If you are coming in "Camping Municipal La Pinčde" ask at the desk. If they have no places, it is possible for you to stay with us on our place n°119 (top of the hill) or I know that my friend Henry (BIG nember n°1112) only arrives on sunday 12.00 but he booked from 15.07.2008 to 15.08.2008.

Hi Etienne,

the situation is, that a relative (who speaks well french) reserved me place ca 8 kms from Bedoin in a camp. After it, I wouldn't cancel that.

I could meet you on 18th, Friday evening (ca after 5-6 pm.), when (in the afternoon, after building up my small tent) I will cycle to Bedoin.
I think on Saturday evening, You will enjoy vine day :-)

That evening for me the pleasure will be the feeling of the joy of climbing Ventoux 3*

this year I succeeded in cycling up to Mont Ventoux on the 4 different ascent (half of the 1st is gravelled):
I have 3 videos about that day : Full HD!
That was the Galerien option of the Club des Cinglés du Mont Ventoux - with a 13,5 kg weighted touring bike:

1st: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3InMfBE0PPs
2nd: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU0OUS_x2B4
3rd part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esUeBeiaH9g

Best regards,

Gabor
