Drop weight and save money!

by

Have you ever spent big dollars on a new bit of bike bling with the justification that it saves weight? Me too.

Do you carry more electronic goodies than is really necessary? Me too.

Are your jersey pockets bulging with stuff?

I possibly carry more than most people because, well it is my job. Camera, Phone, a couple of tubes, pump, the list goes on. Less is more, so I started looking around.

With the technology in phones nowadays, I could ditch the camera and use the phone, but I’d still have to fumble for it, so I had a look at putting it on the handle bars. After much researching I found a product called the Quad Lock. What sets Quad Lock apart from other similar products was its simple mechanical locking system and big lever to release the phone. A shock and waterproof phone case will protect the phone as best as possible out on the road.

To replace the computer, I have downloaded the most comprehensive app, Cyclometer GPS. It does everything that the computer did but on the phone.

So in one swoop I have dropped the camera and computer off the scales and out of my jersey pocket. Probably the best part of 500grams, and saved $1,000 not replacing the computer or the camera, bonus!

The best part is … you can too!

Quad Lock have come on board with VéloRoo and are offering a very generous 20% discount off all products when you order on line and use the code VéloRoo at the checkout! How cool is that!

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.

Peaceful, Quiet, and Beautiful Languedoc Region. It is hard to put into words just how much we enjoyed our ride with Steve and Julia. We contacted them after visiting their website, and arranged a custom cycling tour. Steve was happy to organize three days of riding that met our skills and interests through the amazing hills and parks in the area. We did longer rides each day (95, 125, and 85 kms) that allowed us to explore the region and really get an authentic experience. We were extremely happy with the rental bikes and appreciated their smooth ride, light weight, and excellent maintenance. Steve and Julia really made us feel comfortable and made our whole experience one that we will never forget. Just an outstanding experience that we would recommend. Next time we bike in France, Veloroo will be our first call!Took Customised Cycling Tours in June 2018
Great time, great bikes, great weather. Avoided the worry of bikes on a plane and had excellent bikes. The caad 12 canondales are really fun and comfortable to ride. All delivered to our door. Thanks for the excellent service. The area is a wonderful place to ride - with such different yet spectacular routes depending on which way you head out. Would highly recommend to anyone - especially the lunch stops!Took Bike Hire in France in May 2017
