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.

Did the South of France Vendange tour with a customised ride before (Mediterranean coast) and after (Mt Ventoux), which Steve and Julia arranged for us. Steve has some great routes off the beaten track with Julia and their dog Chien Noir nearby in the support car. The bikes were good quality and well maintained, perfect for both the rural back roads as well as the HC climbs. Catering was excellent - lucky we were riding to work off those calories as the food and wine were awesome - whether dinner at home/in the B&B or out in a restaurant. Lunches consisted of wholesome French restaurant meals or gourmet picnic out and about. Steve makes sure everyone finishes the ride whether with motivating songs riding alongside or useful tips to conserve energy and to get the best out of the bike. There were also many little surprises along the way. Looking forward planning my next trip with Veloroo!Sept 2018
Had a great cycling experience around St Genies de Fontedit with Steve and Julia, the vendange tour I can recommend to any rider from any where. They are great hosts with plenty of local knowledge and knowledge of food and wine. The arranged accommodation was fantastic. The bikes are excellent to ride and would recommend for hiring if desired. The riding kit provided by Veloroo was excellent and all required to bring was riding shoes and pedals. For me this vendange tour was a 6 out of 5. The group dynamics (7 people)was great and made 8 new friends including Steve and Julia.Sept 2018
