Before the excitement of the Monaco Historic Grand Prix we spend our days cycling on the renowned Monte Carlo Rally stages in the mountains behind Monaco; hairpin-riddled roads offering unparalleled, breathtaking views across the deep valleys and down to the Mediterranean sea.

Only by riding these spectacular roads will you truely comprehend the bravery, skill and commitment of World Rally Championship drivers.

Simply…you will be left in awe.

Not only will you be riding the roads of Rally Legend, as many pro tour riders are based in Monaco, you never know who you may share the road with or come across at a coffee stop.

Then – the Monaco Historic Grand Prix!

Across 5 grids, over 180 Grand Prix cars will be competing in Monaco. This is real racing!

Once every two years, since 1997, the Monaco Historic Grand Prix has treated Motor Racing fans and nostalgia enthusiasts alike to a truly magical weekend of racing. To this day 80% of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit retains the character of the first Grand Prix in 1929. The narrow Monaco streets leave no margin for error, rewarding precision and bravery.

Every motorsport fan has their own special section of the Grand Prix circuit, from the world famous and incredibly tight Loewes Hairpin to the Casino tunnel or along the stunning Marina / Swimming Pool complex, Tabac or la Rascass.

AND to ensure you enjoy this monumental race track to its fullest, you will get to cycle the Grand Prix circuit.

Places are strictly limited for this once in a lifetime holiday.

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.

Pyrenees Autumn Challenge
Just came back from the dream vacation with VeloRoo doing the October Pyreness Challenge 2019, and it still feels like a dream! A great friend of mine did the July Pyreness/South of France, and spoke highly of the experience and had no doubt that I would love the route and the VeloRoo experience knowing me and my riding attitude.

It turned out to be better than what I could have asked for. Pre-trip, Julia was super responsive and helpful in providing all the trip information. She also went above and beyond to help find travel logistics on transporting from different parts of Europe to the meeting point of the Pyreness ride. It’s like a Genie helping you find alternatives and solutions on making a trip work! It is really good to be assisted and informed.

We had an intimate group like CyclingStealth11 pointed out, riders from quite a few countries and two non riders. Everyone was a bit anxious about the toughness and possibly other riders being super competitive. It was a relief that with Captain Steve and Neil’s lead, we really focused on “enjoying the climb and view”. The views around Pyreness was just amazing! Every climb is scenic, but scenic in a different way! Steve would pointed out the spots not to miss, I was so thankful when other riders would just stop, and take pictures of the spectacular view! We sing, we laughed, we made jokes, and we climbed (oh and we coffee break, too). We followed Neil like little fans asking of stories. Great hearing everyone’s stories along the way as well! These are special friendships made, that I would like to keep! : ) I already want to go back already while typing these out.

The food and accomodation was great, too! It was nice getting to taste the local specialty. I love being able to try and learn of the local, and embrace the friendliness of the local people from Pyreness area. It is a very unique experience. My mom joined us from Taiwan as a non-rider. She got to see the sights we rode, stopped at great viewing point, and also had a special hike with aforager. This was a special experience to mom at Pyreness even off the bike! Thank you, Julia and Steve for making this work for mom!

Who should consider VeloRoo?
- If you are looking for a great cycling vacation experience that is a little bit more budget friendly
- If you are cool with fully enjoying the view, letting go the baggage, speed, and stats
- If you like an awesome guide, who is more like your family (brother) rather than a scripted tour guide
- If you are not a good planner like me, and can get some help from the amazing Julia
- If you want to have the down to earth local experience, not fancy masseuse/racing crews or personal chef following you

There are also options of routes to consider! So find a route that suits you, and don’t be shy to send the email for more information. It will be an amazing experience whichever VeloRoo tours you decided! Speaking from my earnest experience. : )Took Iconic Climbs Pyrénées Challenge in Oct 2019
Live, laugh, ride ... et manger. I love to ride, I love to laugh and I love to eat. This was a week of living!! Every ride was spectacular. The scenery was amazing. Julia and Steve assisted in an awesome week of experiencing all the magnificent aspects of riding in France. Their local knowledge made the difference to ensure we had an exceptional experience. Merci beaucoup mes amis!Took South of France Cycling Tour in July 2017
