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 2012 we established our cycling tours and road bike hire business, VéloRoo. We just had to share the awesome cycling areas that we had discovered with others!

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.

Did the South of France Vendange tour with a customised ride before (Mediterranean coast) and after (Mt Ventoux), which Steve and Julia arranged for us. Steve has some great routes off the beaten track with Julia and their dog Chien Noir nearby in the support car. The bikes were good quality and well maintained, perfect for both the rural back roads as well as the HC climbs. Catering was excellent - lucky we were riding to work off those calories as the food and wine were awesome - whether dinner at home/in the B&B or out in a restaurant. Lunches consisted of wholesome French restaurant meals or gourmet picnic out and about. Steve makes sure everyone finishes the ride whether with motivating songs riding alongside or useful tips to conserve energy and to get the best out of the bike. There were also many little surprises along the way. Looking forward planning my next trip with Veloroo!Took South of France Cycling Tour in Sept 2018
Riding with Steve as a tour guide made the difference. As a group of three MAMIL's, we booked two days of riding with Steve ... Having Steve as a tour guide significantly improved the whole experience from the distance covered, the speed, the hills, the countryside, the views and, of course, the cafes and restaurants!
Steve is a top bloke for both having a laugh and learning from so in conclusion; lots of exercise, lots of fun and a quality bike ..... hassle free and worth every penny.Took Guided Day Rides in France in May 2017
