A 100km ride from and to the marvellous Cafe Ventoux that takes in some of the best roads and climbs in East Leicestershire and Rutland.

With a total ascent of 1,617m of climbing this is the exact equivalent of the southern ascent of le Mont Ventoux from Bédoin.

But, from Tugby.


The Tour De France riders couldn't do it. But you can. 

You are pretty unlikely to break your bike by riding at speed into the back of a motorcycle round here and need to run up the hills too. (No guarantees.)
