As usual, in May I will be in the area, hopefully this time with no recently sprained ankle, and no lower back pain - and would like to give the Cinglés a try!
(What are Cinglés? Glad you asked! Read on: https://www.clubcinglesventoux.org/en/club.html)
The plan would be to: - do classic route from Bédoin (21.5 km, 1610 m D+) - then descend to Malaucène and go back up again (21 km, 1570 m D+) - and finally repeat the exercise on the Sault side (26 km, 1220 m D+)
