Cycling up and around Ventoux with a Crazy challenge

Crazy Ventoux Camp

Six days (including a very challenging one) of riding up and around mythical Ventoux

Become a member of the Cinglés Club

Six days of riding up and around mythical Mont Ventoux in Provence with one day focused on becoming.

One of the days depending on weather we will attempt becoming a member of the exclusive Cinglés du Mont Ventoux Club.

  A “Cinglé”, French for crazy, is a cyclist who rides all three roads to the top of Ventoux in one day. 

For 30 years DuckStore has been exploring and riding all the roads around Ventoux.  We’ve led numerous groups and riders for simply awesome rides. 

After a good ride nothing better than a Mediterranean diet meal with local renowned wines.
