At velobiketours we design and run our tours to create you an incredible experience; the best time imaginable on a bike.

Our mission is to strive and deliver a cycling tour that exceeds your expectations. Once you’re at the arrival point, we take care of every detail, no matter how big or small. Prior to your tour commencing we will be in contact to offer assistance for your travel arrangements, packing requirements and training. We stay in premium 3-4 star cycling friendly accommodation, selecting quaint and charming locations and where possible we use places of significant interest, such a fine local Chateau. We choose restaurants that provide excellent, authentic local dishes and local wine to savour while you are still on a high from the joys of the day.

France is incredibly rich when it comes to historic and cultural tradition, yes we love the riding but it is also about experiencing the underlying history and the fabric of life in these remote ancient villages, many aspects of which have been unchanged for centuries.
