Cycle touring with a fixed base - doing cycling holidays differently
Welcome to 'VeloTours' - a new company with the idea that cycling holidays shouldn't be nomadic!
We prefer our home comforts and that includes knowing that your destination is a comfy bed, great shower and wonderful food. It also includes not packing/unpacking every day. We like to think we're offering a luxury cycling holiday experience!
What's different about our bicycle holidays?
Our aim is to provide simple, affordable, cycle touring holidays in some great locations, without the hassle of moving from one overnight location to the next. We will be focusing on some stunning locations in France and Italy, together with destinations around the UK.
Our 'target' client demographic is broad, but we hope to bring together like-minded cyclists who wish to explore an area by bike as part of a small group. One of our ambitions is to make our cycling holidays enjoyable both in and out of the saddle, with the social side of our experience just as important as the miles (or kilometres) covered each day.
We're starting small - and that's by design. Our management will be accompanying EVERY tour in the first 18 months - so that we experience every little detail of the packages we are offering, and can make any changes accordingly. That could even include changes 'on the wheel' so to speak, where perhaps our route planning could be improved (even though we will have tried every property and route before we let clients loose on the tour!).
For 2018 our cycling holidays focus on France, and take in some spectacular scenery as we travel around the regions. From June in Picardie, to September and October in Normandy, the south & South West of France, you can be assured on some great food, fabulous roads, and glorious views. With a bit of luck we'll also get to see some grape harvesting as we pass through wine-growing regions in Beajolais and Lot et Garonne. Just check out our French cycling holidays and tours.
So it's time to dust off that bike, clean up the chain and cassette, check the brakes, pump up the tyres and hit the road on one of our small-group guided cycling holidays.

Do you want to join us on a cycling holiday, but don't have a suitable bike? Then get in touch - we can probably still help! Many of the properties we will be using (at least in France) have bicycle hire available. They aren't necessarily the most stylish bikes on the road, but they'll still get you up and down most of the roads we're headed for!
