the Suzette Route
If you don't have a lot of time, this breezy mostly car free 26mile/42km route via Suzette is a Must-Ride. If 26mi/42kms is too short, do it twice. The route follows a quiet valley from Beaumes de Venise to Lafare and then heads up to Suzette. The views are so scenic that they will distract you from the Cat. 3 climb up to the col. Once there, you zip down into Malaucene (a terrific spot for refreshment) or the Wednesday AM market.
