The Cycle Coffee Society Ventoux House is a luxury, bespoke cycling accommodation, located in the heart of Bedoin. Specially designed to meet the 'out of category' quality requirements of professional athletes as well as you; our guests.
As opposed to just the summer months, you can't really name the perfect month for gravel riding in Provence, even in the fall and spring there is still some lovely sunshine to discover our gravel routes around Mont Ventoux and Provence. For a select few, we are offering a gravel training week at our CCS Bedoin home. The days will be filled with great rides. We will also go the fourth and still fairly unknown way up the Mont Ventoux; the so called "Les Graviers du Ventoux". A special edition RIDEMEISTER shirt is included. The delicious food will be prepared by our local chef and of course there is the great coffee.
You will be treated like a professional gravel rider in all respects; with a personal coach and bike guidance from none other than gravel specialist and ex-pro Bram Tankink, mechanical support and if necessary we offer an additional massage and sports nutrition package.
Program on request (preferred dates from Saturday to Tuesday)
There is a possibility to book an early check in for a day earlier and/or a late check out for a day later with an additional fee based on bed & breakfast p.p. per night.
This is a custom request, as an example we have here a format for booking a 4 day package
Day 1 -
Welcome at the CCS house in Bedoin in the afternoon
Each guest will receive a special edition Ridemeister shirt exclusively made by the Ridemeister clothing partner Velor.
Once you are settled in you are invited to join us for a leisurely 50km gravel ride around the vineyards of the "Cotes Du Rhône"; a relaxing ride to loosen up the legs, enjoy the view, let yourself be guided by Bram Tankink's tips and tricks and prepare for the great days ahead!
The welcome dinner will be served by our own chef at 20.00h.
Day 2 -
After a relaxing night's sleep, breakfast and coffee will be served at 08:00 in the morning.
We gather in the courtyard at 09.30am to roll out for today's full day ride.
The ride will take on the "unknown" side of Mont Ventoux today. The gravel edition, which starts in Bedoin and goes all the way around the mountain. The final kilometers will run through the Malaucène side to reach the summit.
We return to the CCS house tired but satisfied to celebrate having completed the Les Graviers du Ventoux. We offer a massage for those who think they need it.
In the evening, you are invited to a 3-course dinner from our local chef.
Day 3 -
Breakfast will be served at 08.00am (hopefully with not too sore legs after yesterday!)
After breakfast there will be a special Barista event with coffee from our partner Il Magistrale Cycling Coffee in the house in our own famous "Coffee Corner". A chance to enjoy great Magistrale coffee and take a break before the afternoon ride.
We will leave around noon for a guided ride of about 75km on beautiful Provençal gravel roads.
Return to the house for relaxation and a three-course dinner from our local chef.
Day 4 -
Breakfast will be served at 07.00h. We gather in the courtyard at 08.30h to leave for the final 50km ride to the gravel roads at the Gorges de la Nesque.
Around 13.00h we return to the house for last but not least well deserved lunch.
All good things come to an end. So after lunch we will help you pack your bikes and wish you a beautiful farewell with many new lifelong memories of your stay at the CCS house, the Ridemeister experience, Bedoin and the Ventoux!
Your trainer for this event is none other than gravel specialist and former professional cyclist Bram Tankink. Bram has an 18 year career as a professional cyclist behind him. Bram will gladly share his experiences, insights, training advice and technical tips for climbing and descending with gravelbikes with you.
The local team will design and develop specific guided gravel rides for you and your group. The rides will go over the most beautiful gravel roads, climbs, descents and classic Provençal landscapes on these days.
Your group will have a dedicated professional mechanic on hand to tune your bikes during your stay, so every mile and gear will go smoothly.
All food and drinks are included with breakfast, lunch and every evening 3-course menu prepared by our chef. Our chef works only with local producers and organic products. We know the value of good and tasty food.
