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

Covid Safe Tour

Here at VéloRoo, we are committed to do everything in our power to provide a Covid Safe tour.

In Australia, we encourage you to download and use the government COVIDSafe App which assists in finding people who have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.

The great thing is, the VeloRoo style of cycling holiday is already perfectly suited to providing a Covid safe environment!

That’s because our style is

  • small group specialists – we always have been!
  • always avoid the crowded tourist spots in favour of the quieter hidden gems
  • always enjoy exploring the space and tranquility of the open countryside by bike
  • always stay in smaller family run accommodation, not a big hotel chain. And now, more than ever, they pride themselves on the cleanliness of their properties.
  • always dine at small family run restaurants who pride themselves not only on the quality of their local food but the safe and clean environments in which they work. We don’t go to the crowded tourist trap cafes.
Covid Clean Practices
  • Pre-tour Health Questionnaire
  • Symptom Free Policy – each day we will ask if you are showing any symptoms including fever, dry cough, sore throat, shortness of breath and we may also do temperature checks. Anyone showing possible symptoms will not be able to join the tour to ensure the health and safety of others.
  • All accommodation / transport / cafe partners that we use also have the COVID Clean Practising Business accreditation
  • Hand sanitiser will be available
  • Social distancing guidelines will be followed. Keep a safe physical distance between yourself and other people.
  • When you meet us and other guests, don’t shake hands or hug—try a no-contact greeting instead.

So don’t stop dreaming about that cycling holiday. Here at VeloRoo – Live, Laugh, Ride Cycling Holidays – we are looking forward to showing you our favourite cycling gems, sometime in the not too distant future.

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.

Recently returned from attending the October ’19 Pyrenees Challenge cycling trip with VeloRoo. The entire experience far exceeded my expectations and turned out to be the trip of lifetime.

The scheduled rides (Tourmalet, D’Espagne, Aubisque, Solour, Tentes, Luz Ardiden) were well planned, well supported and unbelievably picturesque. Steve and Neil were great, safety-conscious guides who knew the terrain and local coffee shops/restaurants very well allowing us to focus on the climbing and taking in the beautiful landscape along the routes. Steve’s friendly and funny disposition, along with his underrated singing talents 😊, kept the tone of each ride refreshingly light and non-competitive as did the occasional picture and refueling stop.

The hired bike was relatively new and well maintained with appropriate gearing and brakes for the steep terrain. Supplied kit and helmet were of high quality also. Our accommodations in Luz St. Sauveur were very comfortable and conveniently located in close proximity to local restaurants, pubs, shopping and of course iconic climbs (Tourmalet Km 0 was a two minute walk from our hotel). Meals at local restaurants were very good-excellent and had several pre-selected menu options that usually featured three courses and included wine.
At our trip’s conclusion Julia and Steve distributed pics and thoughtfully edited videos of each of our cycling days which are awesome keepsakes and memories. These memories, and the friends gained, made this trip exceptionally satisfying. I am already looking forward to my next cycling holiday with Steve, Neil and Julia and highly recommend VeloRoo to any serious cycling enthusiast who is looking for a friendly, well organized and reasonably priced trip.Took Pyrénées Iconic Climbs Challenge in Oct 2019
Having recently organized a Sunshine Coast Cycling tour with Steve at Veloroo, my husband and I were extremely impressed with how professionally run the tour was conducted and how reassuring it was to have Julia in the support vehicle. His local knowledge of the beautiful quiet country roads was second to none and being able to accommodate our different fitness levels was brilliant. Would have no hesitation in recommending Veloroo for your Cycling Tours. We will definitely be back.Took Australian Sunshine Coast Hinterland Cycling Tour in August 2020
