THE ULTIMATE CYCLING EXPERIENCE
​​
We provide people with an amazing cycling experience where you'll feel like family, not a customer.  

We make sure that your 'trip of a lifetime' is the best time you will have both on and off the bike, and will have you coming back for more year after year.

"I cannot speak highly enough of the Velo Tours experience, so much so that I am returning next year to make it 3 years in a row!" Vanessa Hughes 2017

A Velo Tours experience offers the perfect balance of Grand Tour madness and relaxed days of amazing cycling where you'll tick the bucket listers off one by one as a member of a smaller, personal group of likeminded people who will share every challenge and achievement with you along the way.   

There's no daily grind of packing up and changing hotels, you won't spend day after day in a bus or get lost in the background of large group numbers.  We offer relaxed cycling 'holidays' with a true cultural experience away from the touristy big cities.  You get to unpack for a week and live like a local in chalets in small towns close to all the climbs, ride the famous cols and see a few stages of the Grand Tours while you're there.

You will also eat, sleep, ride and repeat all the daily fun alongside Australian cycling legend and SBS media personality, Henk Vogels, on our Grand Tour experiences at Le Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia.  You'll get all the goss and firsthand insight into what goes on behind the scenes on the Grand Tour circuit while out on the bike or over a drink at dinner and be a part of all the fun and larrikinism that Henk brings to the group. 

Our daily rides are fully escorted and supported with experienced guides and vehicles stocked with all your hydration and nutrition needs - as well as endless encouragment from our incredible support crew.  

Our attention to the little things and our challenging, yet flexible itineraries will ensure you tick those big climbs off your bucket list and leave you smiling at the end of each day with a true sense of accomplishment at what you've achieved. 

You will always feel safe because our staff/guest ratio is 1 staff member for every 3.5 guests, so you are never alone in the mountains or left standing at an intersection wondering which way to go.       

When you come on a Velo Tours cycling holiday you are in for an incredible life experience where you will make life long friends and memories that will having you coming back again and again.

Kerry and Kim (and their team) go above and beyond to ensure everyone is well supported and have the experience of a lifetime! Our base in the Alps was stunning and the cycling was exceptional.
