Even the breeze has a name. It’s called the Mistral. It brings the lavender fields to life. It hints at the cherry orchards around the next bend. The Mistral swirls in the paintings of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Gauguin, who painted the hills and villages that you will encounter. You will taste the Mistral in the wines of Provence. The Mistral will cool you in the evenings and keep cool throughout your rides. It will be another companion of your adventure. And as you ride through the breathtaking villages of Gordes and Roussillon with its red brilliant colors, tour Roman ruins of Glanum, or enjoy a stop to shoot photos and sip a café au lait, the Mistral will be there to guide you.
