Fitness and health is my life. I ride regularly on a weekly basis with mates and am comfortable with rides of around 4 hours at a relatively strong pace.

A word from our clients

Don’t take our word for it - here's some comments from happy VeloRoovians

Pyrenees Challenge - Autumn
Just returned from having a fantastic time completing the VeloRoo Pyrenees Challenge with Steve and Julia. Thanks Julia for your help with my pre and post planning as all worked out well.
As for the VeloRoo portion, the bike supplied was great and set to my measurments with only a little onsite tweaking required.
The accommodation and meals in the Pyrenees were great - traditional regional dishes and plenty of it. On the tour were 4 other like miinded riders from the US, Taiwan and UK and thanks to Steve and Neil (ride guide) we all hit off and had a great time.
The riding - the Tourmalet, Luz Ardiden, Pont d'Espagne, Cols de Tente, Soulor and Aubisque were all brilliant to ride. It was very satsifying to look down at the road travelled once the top had been reach. Steve's singing and local knowledge added to each day and Neil's pro cycling background provided another level of insight to the region and simply capped off the experience.
Thanks guys and look forward to completing another VeloRoo Tour soon.Oct 2019
Awesome experience.... opportunity to climb the iconic TDF mountains! Outstanding...The guides, the SAG support and even capturing the experience with photos and videos of the day put together nicely with music provided daily by VELOROO! The tour is operated and run by Steve and Julia (husband and wife) and assisted by Neil Martin, retired professional bicyclist. They are there the entire time to cater to your needs. It was a great opportunity to ride besides Neil and ask / interview him about his vast experiences. All you have to do is show up! They provide the bike, kit ( they laundry your kit every day!). Will definitely sign up for their Italy Tour. Thank you Steve, Julia and Neil!Oct 2019
