Why VéloRoo?

Don’t just ride a bike; enjoy the ultimate French cycling holiday experience.

Because our motto is – Live, Laugh, Ride …

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.

Our goal is to give you a perfect cycling holiday.

You will have our personal attention throughout the entire tour planning phase, plus a wealth of cycling knowledge and bike holiday preparation tips from Steve and French travel logistics help from Julia. We have our own range of quality road bikes included in your package, so you don’t need to lug your bike around on the rest of your European holiday. Travel smarter and with less stress!

And then we get to the real fun part – your idyllic cycling holiday in France – 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 will take you cycling on our fantastic, quiet cycling roads, and during our South of France tours we will guide you to a host of fabulous hidden treasures along the way; from local wineries to olive farms, with plenty of picturesque walks to breathtaking lookouts in the balmy afternoons. We will take you to only 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 French 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!

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.

How does gourmet food, French wine and cycling through some amazingly beautiful French countryside sound for a holiday?
Well if you are looking for an authentic French cycling trip, Trish and I have just finished our third cycling adventure in the south of France with VéloRoo and what a fantastic trip it was. Easy access to the region by train from Barcelona or Paris and from there, Julia and Steve look after everything including; pick up from Beziers train station, all your food, your bike, cycling kit, sensational cycling and outstanding accommodation.
This area of France also provides easy access to other French regions including Provence, Bordeaux and the French Riviera as well as the Ligurian coast of Italy and Barcelona and the Costa Brava in Spain.
Our three trips with VéloRoo include a ten day “Tour de France” adventure, a week of cycling in the Languedoc around St Genies de Fontedit and six days riding all the iconic Pyrenees mountain climbs that you watch every year when the “Tour” is being televised on SBS.
But if you don’t feel the urge to ride hills or your partner is a non-rider, do not concern yourself. Steve, who is a qualified Australian cycling coach, caters to all levels of fitness and Julia organises everything else down to the last detail including; local site seeing, local wine tasting, visiting local village markets and even a water colour painting class if that’s what you would like.
We have stayed in the area for additional days both before and after our cycling trips and with Julia and Steve’s local knowledge we hired a car for about fifty dollars a day and easily drove around the area soaking up amazing scenery, eating in quality restaurants and visiting historic towns like Montpellier and Avignon.
VéloRoo’s local knowledge make each day unforgettable and these guys are passionate about making sure you have the most authentic experience you can manage, both on and off the bike.
Trish and I have travelled to nearly 50 countries now and have experienced many different standards on our travels. I can honestly say, that the three trips we have done with VéloRoo have been three of our best.

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
