Day 1

Lyon to Tournon sur Rhône

Your first day of the ride and the route joins the River Rhône today at Vienne, but the start of the day brings some leg stretchers in to the Isère region, with quiet roads bordered by forests and agriculture. The Rhône in Vendange season will be humming to the sounds of grapes pickers and tractors so we'll enjoy a glass of Côtes du Rhône in the valley at the border of the Drome and Ardèche.


129 KM


960 M


Tournon sur Rhône

Day 2

Tournon sur Rhône to Vaison la Romaine

A spectacular morning as we ride in the Vercors. Moving south to the Col du Pas de Lauzun (504m) and Col de la Sausse (790m) will test the legs before we reach Vaison La Romaine near the Drôme/Vaucluse border our destination for the day.


145 KM


2300 M


Vaison la Romaine

Day 3

Vaison la Romaine to Sisteron

An absolute highlight of the journey today - The Giant of Provence, Le Mont Ventoux awaits. Ascending from Malaucène to the sky before an exhilarating descent to Sault this is one mountain you'll never forget.


127 KM

Day 4

Sisteron to La Martre

A mountainous day, worthy of a stage of the Tour de France! These incredible roads are surely to test the legs and wow the eyes. The Col du Font Belle and Col du Corobin are hors catégorie and the rock formations of the Col des Leques will soften any leg pain! You'll be rewarded with the magnificent descents and the Chateau de Taulane near Castellane to finish the day.


137 KM


3240 M


La Martre

Day 5

La Martre to Carros Nice

Much of todays route is downhill as we head to the Côte d'Azur. Riding through the quiet of the arrière-pays, there is much to experience as we pass some spectacular scenery including the Clue Saint Auban, before arriving to the Var river valley.

Day 6

Carros Nice to Monaco

Join the merry band as we ride to Monaco. The morning is a ride into the hills just north of Nice, used in the finale of Paris-Nice.

Customer Testimonials

I enjoyed the scenery and the challenge of the ride.

— Bespoke Trip - California 2015

Last week, Ben led the Rapha team (Ben, Jonny, Mattia and Franco) in delivering us an outstanding Dolomites experience. In a week where we copped a fair bit of inclement weather, our group of 11 riders were struck by how hard Ben and his team worked each day to make our trip a memorable experience – it was above and beyond all of our expectations. They are a terrific group of guys, and their efforts were really appreciated by the people on our trip.

— Bespoke trip rider, June 2016


Can I make a group booking?

Yes – family members, colleagues or friends usually find that embarking on a group adventure makes it even more fun and rewarding. However, trip places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

I want to organise a custom trip. Is this possible?

Absolutely. We have created dream trips for families, groups of friends, honeymooners, business associates and corporate clients. Everything is possible, but every bespoke trip is unique, so it’s best we talk you through it from the earliest stage.
