I am playing with the thought of getting down to France to see some of the 100th edition of le tour. The 15th stage ends spectacularly at Mont Ventoux after a 20.7 km climb at 7.5%.

What do I need to think of to do this? Are there buses that transports visitors or is it better to rent a car. How much in advance to I need to be there?
The tour then continues to the area around Gap. Is it viable to stay in or near Gap and visit Mont Ventoux over day for the stage finish?
