Mt Ventoux unicycle challenge - late July 2023

We were motivated to organise a non-competitive but challenging event!

Information & registration : https://mt-ventoux-2023.reg.unicycling-software.com

Facebook event (ask questions et discuss with other participants) : https://fb.me/e/NFzFc87x

The principle of this day is to climb alone or in relay the Mont Ventoux by these 3 roads (for a total of 137km and 4400m of elevation).

This is a non competitive event, the event will not be timed, the objective of each participant is to finish.
The 3 climbs will be done starting with the most difficult and ending with the easiest.
The itinerary will be as follows: Bédoin / Mt Ventoux / Malaucène / Mt Ventoux / Sault / Mt Ventoux / Bédoin
Mont Ventoux from BĂ©doin
Mont Ventoux from Malaucène
Mont Ventoux from Sault

The departure is planned in the center of BĂ©doin at sunrise (around 6am) with an end in BĂ©doin before sunset (9pm-9:30pm).
Time barriers will be provided to leave Malaucène and Sault, for example 11am and 4pm.
The idea is to spend as much time as possible together, especially in the climbs. But we shouldn’t all be late.

For this event to gather a maximum of participants, we propose the participation alone or in relays of 2 or 3 (with at least one ascent and descent per participant).

You will have understood the objectives of this event are multiple:

  • to gather and realize together a collective unicycle sport achievement
  • to take advantage of this event to serve a charity in medical research
  • to promote road unicycling practice in a mythical place for the cyclists of the whole world

For this event we would like to create a jersey dedicated to the event and a photo and video follow-up to communicate on the feat and to keep a souvenir.

The road will be open and the respect of the road code is mandatory.

Update:

The event will take place on July 29, 2023.

All the information has been on the registration site:

https://mt-ventoux-2023.reg.unicycling-software.com/en

We will have to commit quickly to the production of the jerseys. If you can’t come and you want to help us, there are 2 solutions:
1/ you can order a cycling jersey without participating (you must be registered in the registration tool)
2/ you can make a donation to the Brain Institute Mont Ventoux Unicycle Challenge | Alvarum

If the idea of doing a single climb of Mont Ventoux appeals to you, sign up and teams will be formed.

Feel free to share the info. Do not hesitate to ask your questions. Do not hesitate to come ! :upside_down_face:
