SV Travel’s retreat Le Grand Banc is like no other riding excursion. Groups of 10-15 riders will stay at Le Grand Banc, a private hamlet on the edge of the Luberon valley, one of the most untouched and tranquil parts of rural Provence. The riding here is special, not just because of the quiet roads and tough climbs, but also because of the rustic scenery, local culture, food and wine.
A typical week will see you ride the incredible Gorges de la Nesque, the Montagne de Lure, the rolling Luberon hills, and climb up to the famous white scree slopes of Mont Ventoux, arguably the most hallowed climb in the history of road racing.
Our experienced SV ride guides tailor each day to be different and with varying degrees of difficulty and route options, depending on how you’re feeling. A 60 mile loop taking in a quiet winding climb on the first day could be followed the next with a 90 mile journey up to the summit of Ventoux.
