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

Why VéloRoo?

Because our philosophy is – Live, Laugh, Ride …

We have 8 years experience providing awesome cycling holidays to our guests!

Steve & Julia

VéloRoo is a family business, owned and operated by Australian couple, Steve and Julia. From your first email, contact or phone call you will be talking with one of us. (Unless of course you come across one of our happy guests first, who might tell you all about it!)

Our goal is to give you a perfect cycling holiday.

You will have our personal attention throughout the entire tour planning phase. Steve has a wealth of cycling knowledge and bike holiday preparation tips to share to get you ready to roll; and when you book one of our gorgeous international cycling tours, you will have excellent French travel logistics help from Julia. We have our own range of quality road bikes included in our European packages, so you don’t need to lug your bike around for the rest of your European holiday. Travel smarter, lighter and with less stress!

Then we get to the real fun part – your idyllic cycling holiday – and we are with you all the way! Steve will be your riding buddy and tour guide; and Julia is always close at hand with vehicle support and supplies.

We pride ourselves in designing routes along quiet, less taken roads. Our Sunshine Coast Hinterland Cycling Tours will take you far from the usual tourist haunts; our South of France tours will introduce you to a host of fabulous hidden treasures along the way. Think local wineries, olive farms, plenty of picturesque walks to breathtaking lookouts in the balmy afternoons…bliss. We will take you only to the best local cafes and restaurants, nearly all of which are run by husband and wife teams and all of which have a true passion for local French food and wines.

VéloRoo offers several exclusive, exceptional, personalised, fully-supported cycling adventures each year, coupled with quality, authentic accommodation, gastronomic dining and local cultural events. We bring you a dynamically balanced experience, containing both cycling fun and sightseeing – perfect for couples with a non-cycling partner.

You know you’re doing cycling holidays right when your guests return for their 3rd and 4th tour with you, year after year! We can’t wait to do the same for you, and make your dream cycling holiday a reality.

au revoir!

Our current cycling holidays include:

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
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
