Col St Jean and Perty from Serre Des Ormes

81 km Distance
1,300 m Ascent
1,300 m Descent

(2 ratings)

A great route into the Drome over Col Perty with great views of the Alps to the North and Mont Ventoux to the south. The route described takes you over Col St Jean via the main route but any of the other climbs can be used. After descending to Laborel there is a 8km climb to Col Perty which was used by the Tour in 2006. The views from the Col are spectacular and even more impressive during the descent. There is a lovely café after the descent in St Auban sur l'Ouveze which is well worth stopping at before a gentle climb towards Col Mevouillon and returning to Serre Des Ormes.

Route suggested by Paul and Kate at Serre Des Ormes Cycling Retreat based in the spectacular Gorges de La Méouge. Please contact us for more route and holiday details.
