Provence Explorer

Mazan to Gordes, France

La belle vie spills over on this Provence cycling experience.

The Provençal attitude, "la vie est belle ici" (life is good here) runneth over on this bike tour. The textured landscape of le Lubéron and the Vaucluse plateau capture a diversity and charisma that defies description. Life in Provence is about discovering a slower pace, from savoring each bite of cuisine to chatting with the locals as you walk through the market. For those who prefer a leisurely pace, cozy cafés, village strolls, and relaxing afternoons temper the adventure of each day’s ride. And for avid cyclists ready for the challenge, the Tour de France's epic Mont Ventoux is ready to be conquered. Trek Travel’s Provence biking trip offers the opportunity to indulge in all things Provençal at the perfect pace, in the perfect place.

Today’s avid option post-lunch will lead you through the villages of Ménerbes and Oppède le Vieux, tucked along the Lubéron ridge. This afternoon, you'll have time to explore Gordes and enjoy the views over the valley, which have made this hamlet such a strategic prize in bygone eras. Later, relax as a group with a glass of wine and a few rounds of Petanque, one of Provence’s favorite pastimes. Tonight, enjoy a delicious meal while we reminisce about our adventures among newfound friends.

Day

6

Today's Ride:

Gordes to Lioux Loop
Approximately 16 miles with 1,245 feet of climbing

Description:

On this final day, take the morning to explore Gordes and capture its beauty in the morning sun. If you prefer to pedal, rise early for a morning loop to the tiny village and towering cliff of Lioux. Legend has it that Hannibal garrisoned his troops here when he marched on Rome and was thwarted at Marseille around 218 BC, thus explaining why there are elephants on the village crest. Returning to the hotel, you’ll have enough time to return to your room, shower, and change before your shuttle arrives. You’ll say farewell to your guides at 10:30 AM at the Hotel Le Mas de Gordes, then take a private coach to the Avignon TGV or Central Station (approximately 50 minutes). Here you can take a train to Paris or any other destination. Please do not book any train before noon.

What does "Single Occupancy" mean?

We understand that some guests find it more convenient and comfortable to have a private room while on vacation. And that’s why we offer a Single Occupancy option. The supplemental charge guarantees a private room without a roommate.

FAQs

Trip Changes

Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer each and every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

  • Rider Type | 2&3
  • Average Daily Mileage | 30
  • Terrain | Hilly
  • Average Daily Elevation | 2,800

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Provence is best suited for our Type 2&3 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 4 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is highlighted by stunning views, quiet roads & hilly terrain. There will be an average of 2-3 major climbs per day. You will be surrounded by vineyards & wonderful cherry orchards, all great spots to rest in the shade. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.

On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. See Included In The Trip Price for more information. Some non-riding options on this trip are:

  • Visit the Provencal market in Bédoin
  • Explore the hilltop town of Gordes
  • Visit the 2000-year-old Pont Julien, an ancient stone bridge
  • Discover the ancient stone dwellings known as "bories"
  • Learn the skill of playing Pétanque
  • Shop and explore the ochre village of Roussillon
  • Optional in-house massage and spa treatments

May, June and September in Provence usually bring clear, warm, and pleasant days with cool evenings. August on the other hand can be quite hot. Rain is always a possibility, so be prepared with the proper rain gear in order to best enjoy your vacation. If you are planning on riding Mont Ventoux, we recommend bringing your fall/winter riding gear. The descent can be very cold.

For an additional fee you may request to upgrade to the brand new Trek Emonda SLR with Shimano Di2 Electronic shifting or Bontrager Aeolus carbon wheels for the ultimate riding experience. Contact our trip consultants for more details.

If you’re going we’re going on almost all our trips. Trips with 1 guest booked are guaranteed to run. Select trips like Cross Country, Race and Special Edition trips require a minimum number of guests to run and are not guaranteed until that number is reached. Contact your Trip Consultant for more details.

In the event that a departure has low enrollment, we will notify guests at 60-90 days before departure to give the option to select a different date with more guests booked. Please do not reserve airfare before confirming your Trek Travel trip.

When a trip is booked, a guest confirmation letter is immediately sent out. One week prior to the trip start you will receive an email containing a trip start meeting location reminder and any last minute information that you will need to know before your trip. Once you arrive at your destination Trek Travel staff will brief you on the day-to-day plan for the trip and provide you with daily route guides and a detailed map allowing you to ride with complete confidence and independence.

Meeting & Departing

How to get there

We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the trip start, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into Paris (CDG). All major US airlines and Air France offer nonstop flights from major US cities. From Paris, take a TGV train to Avignon, either from the TGV station at Charles de Gaulle Airport or from the Gare de Lyon in Paris.

The TGV station is approximately five miles from the Centre Station downtown. If you happen to arrive at the Avignon Centre train station, there is a frequent shuttle bus that runs between the two stations that costs a few euros per person, which usually takes 10 minutes, and runs approximately every 20 minutes.Taxis are also available at the Centre Station for the 10-minute ride for approximately 20 euros.Train schedules are available and tickets can be booked directly online at www.SNCF.com or using our in house travel agent services.

Before: AVIGNON, FRANCE

If you are planning on extending your trip and exploring the walled city of Avignon, there are a number of must-sees. Palais des Papes stands as the largest Gothic palace in Europe. With the arrival of the popes in the 14th century, for a period known as the Avignon Papacy, the Palais des Papes was home to the Sovereign Pontiffs. One must also visit the nearby Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct that was used to bring Uzès spring water to Nîmes. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:

Cloître St. Louis

A Jesuit monastery built in 1611, this building was converted to a hotel in the early 1900s. A walled courtyard, lined with old plane trees, makes for a relaxing setting. It has a small rooftop pool and is one block from the central train station. 80 rooms.

The Arc isn’t the only site that offers a great view of the city, however. Other monuments with impressive vistas include the view from the white dome of the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre, or from atop the 56 floors of the Tour Montparnasse, and of course at the summit of the most famous monument in Paris—la Tour Eiffel. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
