Spring Pyrénées Challenge

Our Spring Pyrénées Challenge marks the official opening of the Pyrénées in early June for the summer cycling season.

The “Montée du Géant” festival is a celebration of cycling, endeavour and history, as you take part in the procession that returns Le Géant to his summer home, the summit of the Col du Tourmalet.

 

October Pyrénées Challenge

Our October Pyrénées Challenge takes you on a cycling tour of the stunning Pyrénéan autumn colours. The inspiring landscapes are highlighted with the incredible clarity that the autumn light offers; burnt oranges, vivid reds and lively yellows of this romantic season. With an invigorating chill to the air, riding the Pyrénées in autumn is pure bliss. 

Furthermore, by holidaying in the Pyrénées during October, you avoid the busy traffic that comes with the July / August peak summer season. Imagine quiet roads, punctuated by the occasional cow bell or local sheep herders and their flocks, allowing you to soak up the idyllic French serenity. You can be sure that after your VéloRoo Pyrénées Challenge, you will have stories and memories of a lifetime.

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.

Exceptional - great service, great bikes, great ride. Steve and Julia were fantastic. Did two days of riding and couldn't fault the experience. Steve is obsessed with quality kit....bikes were superb. Will be back next year for more.Took Guided Day Rides in France in Aug 2017
Veloroo, headed by Steve and Julia have been a highlight in our travels through Europe. Cycling tours in southern France (Langedoc) are their specialty and so much more than that. It was a great experience which will continue into the future we hope.Took South of France Cycling Tour in July 2016
