Live, Laugh, Ride ... Cycling Tours since 2012

Our base in France

Occitanie (previously the Languedoc) is an undiscovered cyclists’ paradise – France’s last cycling secret.

The Avant Monts area is in the South of France, inland from the Mediterranean coast. An undulating landscape with a spectacular backdrop of the southern flanks of the Massif Central and Cevennes, as it rises from the Mediterranean plains.

Set in France’s oldest (and largest) wine region, dating back over two millennia, our region is dominated by the vineyards as well as olive orchards and fragrant garrigue scrub.

On your VéloRoo cycling holiday in France, you’ll discover not only our roads are quiet but also peppered with Tour de France history! Our medieval villages are authentic and unspoilt, much like living museums. We’ve escaped the touristy glitz and commercialised polish of other Mediterranean regions and that’s exactly why we love it! The REAL South of France is addictive!

As we are the first dedicated road bike tour business established in the region, you will experience the best routes combining quiet country roads, picturesque scenery, beautiful vineyards and of course fabulous food and wine! All with vehicle support, just like the Pro’s!

Live. Laugh. Ride.

A word from our clients

Don’t take our word for it - here's some comments from happy VeloRoovians

First I have to apologize for talking so long to write my review, especially since my wife and I had an amazing time. Steve, Julia and Neal are awesome. If you ride with VeloRoo you will have a fantastic experience period! I quickly told my cycling buddies back at home. In fact, one of my buddies rode the Pyrenees in Autumn of 2019 (see Dale's review) and said it was trip of a lifetime.

My wife and I did the July Pyreness/South of France tour. From a cycling standpoint, we are at completely different levels. I ride close to 6000 miles a year and love climbing. My wife is new to cycling and was just starting to use clip in pedals about 5 months before our trip. That said, Veloroo is able to accommodate the ride for everyone. They make the rides flexible for the riders. For example, instead of riding the entire Col de Tourmalet, Veloroo drove my wife and several riders up halfway and they were able to ride the rest to the summit. On any given day, you can ride as much as you want or at any time take a nice break.

We were very fortunate to ride with a group of riders primarily from Australia. And close friendships were quickly made during the trip and remain afterward.

A couple of shoutouts....

Julie, thank you for making things run so smoothly. I know it requires a lot of preparation and attention to detail. You did a marvelous job and are awesome. Steve is a lucky guy to have you.

Steve, your positive attitude, sense of humor, and passion really made our trip. I appreciate all of the help you did with my wife. She really appreciated it as well and is even more motivated to get more climbing under her belt.

Neal, we really appreciated all of your help and tips. We love all of your great stories and insight. Most of all you are one of the nicest guys you could meet.

VeloRoo really does treat you like family and you become part of their extended family after you ride with them.

Cycling to me is a passion and is potentially something that my wife and I can share doing together. After this trip, my wife has gotten the cycling bug and has already started planning for local rides that we can do together. I consider that a success.

Thank you VeloRoo!Took Pyrénées Iconic Climbs Challenge in July 2019
For us, the tour was a perfect balance of challenging cycling in spectacular scenery and enjoying the local sights, delicious food and wine. Steve and Julia went 'above-and -beyond' to tailor the tour to the needs and interests of our group which included spending an extra day before the tour to ride around their home village of St Genies de Fontedit. Steve was a friendly, hospitable and enthusiastic cycling guide and Julia was superbly reliable and organised - always in the right place at the right time in the support van with refreshments, extra jackets (or a lift home).
We would highly recommend VeloRoo for a cycling holiday!Took Pyrénées Iconic Climbs Challenge in June 2017
