Live, Laugh, Ride ... Cycling holidays since 2012

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.

A sixth (or seventh, you stop counting once you feel like adopted 'family') return to VeloRoo. Previous hirer of bike and the odd riding session - this time a first experience of their residential tours of the Pyrenees.

Completely wonderful experience and exactly as Steve and Julia had been describing for years: sold as seen! Both experienced in doing the grafting - and making it look effortless. Super little group of matched riders, all local knowledge deployed, kit washing and venue stops perfect. Great kit supplied and nil expenditure once on the road.

What particularly impressed me is that my fellow riders came from the US and Aus for this - I flew 90mins from 'down the road' (UK) - that's how special something of this scale and personality level is.

Refreshes the parts other big-name tours can't reach: a secret gem with a characterful, friendly VeloRoo family experience.Took Pyrénées Iconic Climbs Challenge in Oct 2019
Recently returned from attending the October ’19 Pyrenees Challenge cycling trip with VeloRoo. The entire experience far exceeded my expectations and turned out to be the trip of lifetime.

The scheduled rides (Tourmalet, D’Espagne, Aubisque, Solour, Tentes, Luz Ardiden) were well planned, well supported and unbelievably picturesque. Steve and Neil were great, safety-conscious guides who knew the terrain and local coffee shops/restaurants very well allowing us to focus on the climbing and taking in the beautiful landscape along the routes. Steve’s friendly and funny disposition, along with his underrated singing talents 😊, kept the tone of each ride refreshingly light and non-competitive as did the occasional picture and refueling stop.

The hired bike was relatively new and well maintained with appropriate gearing and brakes for the steep terrain. Supplied kit and helmet were of high quality also. Our accommodations in Luz St. Sauveur were very comfortable and conveniently located in close proximity to local restaurants, pubs, shopping and of course iconic climbs (Tourmalet Km 0 was a two minute walk from our hotel). Meals at local restaurants were very good-excellent and had several pre-selected menu options that usually featured three courses and included wine.
At our trip’s conclusion Julia and Steve distributed pics and thoughtfully edited videos of each of our cycling days which are awesome keepsakes and memories. These memories, and the friends gained, made this trip exceptionally satisfying. I am already looking forward to my next cycling holiday with Steve, Neil and Julia and highly recommend VeloRoo to any serious cycling enthusiast who is looking for a friendly, well organized and reasonably priced trip.Took Pyrénées Iconic Climbs Challenge in Oct 2019
