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 - here's some comments from happy VeloRoovians

We were welcomed off the train by Julia & Steve and made to feel relaxed and well looked after from the very beginning. B&B VeloRoo chose for our stay was outstanding with the most yummy breakfasts & on occasion dinner. Made us feel like we were visiting old friends. The bikes were Cannondale and in very good condition. I needed my own seat fitted and some other changes nothing was to much trouble for Steve who not only was our ride leader but also a great bike mechanic. Our ride kits were cleaned daily by Julia whom also had the Sag Wagon ready if any of us needed a breather. The rides were picturesque with interesting facts thrown in along the way. The trips are tailored to each riders skills so no problem recommending this tour to all levels. We chose the wine and cheese tour, the meals were gourmet and the wine lovely and plenty. Would not hesitate in recommending VeloRoo to anyone wanting a well organised ride with the comforts of life added in.Took South of France Cycling Tour in Sept 2018
Did the South of France Vendange tour with a customised ride before (Mediterranean coast) and after (Mt Ventoux), which Steve and Julia arranged for us. Steve has some great routes off the beaten track with Julia and their dog Chien Noir nearby in the support car. The bikes were good quality and well maintained, perfect for both the rural back roads as well as the HC climbs. Catering was excellent - lucky we were riding to work off those calories as the food and wine were awesome - whether dinner at home/in the B&B or out in a restaurant. Lunches consisted of wholesome French restaurant meals or gourmet picnic out and about. Steve makes sure everyone finishes the ride whether with motivating songs riding alongside or useful tips to conserve energy and to get the best out of the bike. There were also many little surprises along the way. Looking forward planning my next trip with Veloroo!Took South of France Cycling Tour in Sept 2018
