Since hosting the Tour de France Grand Depart in 2014, Yorkshire has continued to embrace with passion and unbridled enthusiasm, cycling in all its forms to establish Yorkshire as the UK's premier cycling destination. On VéloRoo's 9 day Yorkshire Road World Championship holiday you will not miss any stage or the epic roads in striking landscapes that Yorkshire is becoming known for! You dont want to miss this.

Come and see the Rainbow!

From stunning landscapes of soft rolling hills and panoramas of lush green farmland criss-crossed by dry stone walls, to the remote ruggedness of its moorlands, Yorkshire delivers a wealth of bio-diversity. We haven’t even mentioned the charming villages yet!

And with a spectacular range of competitive parcours, Yorkshire will produce some of the most iconic moments of Road World Championships history. For nine days, the best male and female riders from around the globe will compete for national pride and personal glory in the fight to wear the coveted Rainbow Jersey.

There has never been a better time or place to witness the determination, competition and emotion across so many cycling disciplines. Para-Cycling, Junior (U18), Under 23 and Elite, Women and Mens events – the best of the best.

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.

How does gourmet food, French wine and cycling through some amazingly beautiful French countryside sound for a holiday?
Well if you are looking for an authentic French cycling trip, Trish and I have just finished our third cycling adventure in the south of France with VéloRoo and what a fantastic trip it was. Easy access to the region by train from Barcelona or Paris and from there, Julia and Steve look after everything including; pick up from Beziers train station, all your food, your bike, cycling kit, sensational cycling and outstanding accommodation.
This area of France also provides easy access to other French regions including Provence, Bordeaux and the French Riviera as well as the Ligurian coast of Italy and Barcelona and the Costa Brava in Spain.
Our three trips with VéloRoo include a ten day “Tour de France” adventure, a week of cycling in the Languedoc around St Genies de Fontedit and six days riding all the iconic Pyrenees mountain climbs that you watch every year when the “Tour” is being televised on SBS.
But if you don’t feel the urge to ride hills or your partner is a non-rider, do not concern yourself. Steve, who is a qualified Australian cycling coach, caters to all levels of fitness and Julia organises everything else down to the last detail including; local site seeing, local wine tasting, visiting local village markets and even a water colour painting class if that’s what you would like.
We have stayed in the area for additional days both before and after our cycling trips and with Julia and Steve’s local knowledge we hired a car for about fifty dollars a day and easily drove around the area soaking up amazing scenery, eating in quality restaurants and visiting historic towns like Montpellier and Avignon.
VéloRoo’s local knowledge make each day unforgettable and these guys are passionate about making sure you have the most authentic experience you can manage, both on and off the bike.
Trish and I have travelled to nearly 50 countries now and have experienced many different standards on our travels. I can honestly say, that the three trips we have done with VéloRoo have been three of our best.

Current on day 4 of 7 Tour de France with Steve and Julia and it’s been truly exceptional. New to outdoor cycling I didn’t expect the tour to be this good. My cycling has improved thanks to Steve expert tips and we’ve stayed in some amazing places whilst watching different stages of the TDF. Cycling holiday of a lifetime hosted by a really nice couple who pay attention to every detail.July 2018
