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.

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
Pyrenees Challenge - Autumn
Just returned from having a fantastic time completing the VeloRoo Pyrenees Challenge with Steve and Julia. Thanks Julia for your help with my pre and post planning as all worked out well.
As for the VeloRoo portion, the bike supplied was great and set to my measurments with only a little onsite tweaking required.
The accommodation and meals in the Pyrenees were great - traditional regional dishes and plenty of it. On the tour were 4 other like miinded riders from the US, Taiwan and UK and thanks to Steve and Neil (ride guide) we all hit off and had a great time.
The riding - the Tourmalet, Luz Ardiden, Pont d'Espagne, Cols de Tente, Soulor and Aubisque were all brilliant to ride. It was very satsifying to look down at the road travelled once the top had been reach. Steve's singing and local knowledge added to each day and Neil's pro cycling background provided another level of insight to the region and simply capped off the experience.
Thanks guys and look forward to completing another VeloRoo Tour soon.Took Iconic Climbs Pyrénées Challenge in Oct 2019
