I’m relatively fit and comfortable on the bike and happiest on mild gradients or the flat.

I regularly ride for fitness, dry days I ride to work, and weekend fun with friends. I enjoy an active healthy lifestyle and occasional physical challenges.

3 Roo’s:
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.

4 Roo’s:
I ride on average 250 + k’s a week and enjoy a 100k rides on the weekends. I love to train, improve, and sometimes challenge amongst my friends.

5 Roo’s:
Riding is my life! I’m not interested in racing, I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I love the challenge and the idea of where my legs and bike can take me. My friends and I are always looking for the next cycling adventure.

Tour Highlights

We believe the best way to discover the hidden gems whilst cycling in the South of France is to visit in Spring and Autumn …. when the tourists have gone home …. and do it with someone who really knows the roads. We are passionate about sharing our beautiful region with fellow cyclists. That’s why we offer tours in May / June to see the amazing Spring flowers, September to experience the Grape Harvest and Autumn to ride through the beautiful colours of the landscape.

Because we know the roads we can share with you the quiet routes and tucked away village cafes. We offer road cyclists the perfect balance between cycling, holidaying and sightseeing so you can Live, Laugh, Ride…

A word from our clients

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

I completed a 9 day cycling trip with Steve and Julia in September. It exceeded all my expectations - cycling, food, hospitality, personalised service, attention to detail - the full French experience. I highly recommend the South of France Vendange tour, especially during grape harvesting season (!). We were also able to organise added extras on either end of the tour (Mediterranean border crossing from Spain to France) and a summit of iconic Mt Ventoux. Steve and Julia go above and beyond and are great company. Lots of thoughtful gestures along the way. Steve will even serenade you with 80s songs if that helps you on the ascents. I am already planning the next trip with VeloRoo.Sept 2018
I joined Steve & Julia (along with friends) on the South of France cycling tour in September 2018 with additional bookend rides from Spain to France along the Mediterranean and up Mt Ventoux from Bedoin. Cycling with VeloRoo far exceeded my expectations and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again or recommend them to others considering a cycling holiday. Julia worked tirelessly providing fantastic support for our rides, making sure everything went as planned and capturing our rides on camera - all with a smile. Steve was an awesome tour guide, doubling up as bike mechanic, cycling coach, entertainer and counsellor (helping us to get up a couple of HC climbs). Safety was paramount. Food, wine, accomodation and destinations along the way were all magnificent not to mention the friendships that we made on the tour! Thanks Julia & Steve!Sept 2018
