Ride Ventoux | About Us

Welcome to Ride Ventoux, where passion meets innovation in the heart of Sault, France, nestled at the foot of the iconic Mont Ventoux.

At Ride Ventoux, we don't just ride bikes; we live and breathe cycling. Founded by an adventurer who pedaled through 12 countries across the continent of Asia (2014-2015), spent years at the helm of Cyclist UK magazine's Turkish edition (2015-2017), and now leads as the General Manager of Giant Bicycles' Turkish distributor (2017), we bring a wealth of experience and dedication to the cycling community.

In addition to founding Zebraska Publishing House (2017), where we've translated and published some of the finest works in Turkish literature on cycling, this year marks a new chapter as we unveil our own bicycle brand "ENERGI".

Situated at the base of Mont Ventoux, our boutique shop not only showcases our brand but also offers top-of-the-line road bicycles for rent, allowing customers to test ride and experience the thrill of cycling in this legendary setting.

But our commitment to cycling goes beyond business. We believe in sustainable practices and environmental stewardship. That's why we strive to use eco-friendly products and offer high-performance gear made from recycled materials. Furthermore, for every 10 rentals, we undertake tree planting initiatives to offset carbon emissions, ensuring that our passion for cycling leaves a positive impact on the planet.

Join us for moonlit rides to the summit of Mont Ventoux and free Ventoux Sunday group rides every week. Experience the thrill of cycling, immerse yourself in the beauty of nature, and be part of our journey towards a greener, more sustainable future.

Welcome to Ride Ventoux, where every pedal stroke propels us forward – towards adventure, towards community, and towards a better world.


Designing Energi Road Bikes

My experiences in designing Energi-branded road bicycles and the meticulous selection of elements that constitute the bike have been shaped by my lifelong journey in the world of road cycling. Drawing from over three years of editorial expertise at one of the world's most esteemed cycling publications, followed by a managerial role at the Turkish partner of the largest bicycle manufacturer globally, I have continuously delved into bicycle technologies and explored diverse design possibilities.

Throughout this journey, I have had the privilege of immersing myself in the intricate details of road bicycle design, from frame geometry to component selection, aerodynamics to material science. My work has been fueled by a passion for innovation and a relentless pursuit of excellence, aiming to push the boundaries of what is possible in road cycling.

With each project, I strive to blend cutting-edge technology with timeless design principles, creating bicycles that not only perform at the highest level but also inspire riders with their beauty and elegance. Every curve, every component, and every detail is carefully considered to deliver an unparalleled riding experience.

As I continue to explore new horizons in bicycle design and technology, I am driven by a commitment to pushing the limits of innovation and craftsmanship, ensuring that Energi remains at the forefront of the road cycling industry.

Through my work, I aim to not only create exceptional bicycles but also share the joy and passion of cycling with riders around the world, inspiring them to embark on their own adventures and push their limits on the open road.
