This simple circuit of 63k takes in the nearby village of Villars, followed by a climb from abt 250 metres to 1100 metres to Lagarde d’Apt ,then passing the Lavender fields heading to Sault with views of Mont Ventoux before heading back via Javon to Saint-Saturnin.

Not my best time, 1 hour 12 from 250 metres up to the top , must try harder next time!

After recent rainfall even the lavender fields are looking green and lush!
