About us

VéloRoo is run by Australian couple, Steve & Julia

In 2004 on a holiday in France we drove through the Alps and saw writing on the road. It was from the Tour de France; it was Galibier. That year we sat diligently in front of the TV and watched the overnight live coverage, looking out for the places we had seen. The scenery was spectacular.

At the same time we started to listen to “the voice of cycling”, Phil Liggett, and it’s thanks to Phil and his enthusiasm for cycling that we began our journey to where we are today.

In 2009 we bought a little French village house to spend our holidays in, and we then realised we were in an undiscovered cyclists’ paradise! In 2012 we established our cycling tours and road bike hire business, VéloRoo. We just had to share our awesome cycling area with others!

We actually met through a love of 4 wheels not 2; we were both Motorsport tragics. Our first French holiday was planned around seeing the F1 Monaco GP and Le Mans 24hr. Through VéloRoo, we are able to combine and share our passions with other 2 and 4 wheel enthusiasts, with cycling tours to special events such as the Historic Monaco Grand Prix and the 24hr Velo Le Mans.

It is truly a passion for us to ensure people enjoy the perfect cycling holiday.

We look forward to sharing all we have discovered (and continue to discover) in our awesome cycling region with you.

Live, Laugh, Ride …

A word from our clients

Don’t take our word for it - discover why our cycling adventurists have fallen in love with the Occitanie Region of Southern France and the VeloRoo way.

Wonderful morning ride. Veloroo were very helpful from the offset suggesting different possibilities and how to get to them. Getting on the bus this morning to meet them wasn't sure what to expect but they didn't disappoint, equipment and knowledge of the area first class. The scenery was stunning and the ride distance and climbing judged to perfection for my ability. Steve even threw in some tips for improving my cycling. Will definitely be back again.Took Guided Day Rides in France in June 2018
Best Part of Our Trip. I am not a big reviewer of organizations, esp if they are not five stars. In this case, writing a favorable review may not just be a nice thing to do but mandatory. Any of you out there who enjoy riding, amiable company, and crazy beautiful French countryside need to cycle with Steve. While there were many things about our trip that were fantastic (it is France, after all), our half-day ride with VeloRoo made the top of the list of things to do -- and do again, I hope.Took Guided Day Rides in France in Aug 2017
