Could I ask for some advice.
I am planning a 5 day trip for my 2 brothers & myself for late Aug 19 with 3 days cycling (2 travelling). Will be hiring car & intending to hire bikes locally.
I’m a regular club cyclist with good experience in the Alps, Pyrenees, Teide - Tenerife but either of my brothers are big cyclist’s albeit one is very fit, a big surfer & tennis player & the other rides a gravel bike regularly.
I intend to tick Ventoux off my list on one of the days, this will a solo ride by myself - then I’m thinking Gorges du Nesque & other spots for the other days with the brothers.
Would anyone have an idea where would be the best base for this – Bedoin?
Have been told L’isle sur la Sorgue is really nice but is it too far for cyclists who are not used to big cycle days?
And based on answers to the above, can anyone recommend decent B&B or gite, would really like to find somewhere like I have previously with B&B & dinner & wine with dinner that cater to cyclists.
We are hiring a car but not one that would be big enough to fit 3 bikes in.
& lastly, any suggestions on bike hire shops?
Appreciate this is a lot to ask so thank you for taking the time to read.
