Frequently asked questions

What is provided with my Road Bike?

Road bike rental includes a saddlebag with tyre levers & spare tube, pump fitted to the bike and souvenir water bottle. Accessories such as helmet, pedals and Garmin are available for hire.

Pedals

Our road bikes do not come with pedals. (we can fit flat pedals for you free of charge if you wish) We have some pedals available for hire (Look, SPD road & SPD offroad) and must be pre-booked. Otherwise we recommend you bring your own pedals.

And a handy tip – don’t leave it until the night before you fly out to try to remove your pedals, depending on how long they have been on your bike, they may be tight to remove!

Saddle / Seat

We highly recommend bringing your own saddle if you intend to do some distances, as your saddle can be a very personal choice (generally they are light weight and small to pack). We will happily fit this for you when we deliver your bike. Otherwise all of our bikes come with the standard factory supplied saddle.

A word from our clients

Don’t take our word for it - discover why cycling adventurists have fallen in love with the Occitanie Region of Southern France.

This was my first time to leave my bike at home and rent a bike in France. It was a great decision as VeloRoo provided an excellent service and an excellent bike. The gears were just right for getting up some stiff climbs in the foothills of the Massif Central. The bike was delivered to where I was staying, my pedals put on and the saddle adjusted to the right height. It was then collected at the end. Everything worked well and I will certainly hire a bike again from VeloRoo if I am back in this area.June 2018
I recently visited the Languedoc Roussillon area on holiday for a family holiday and arranged road bike hire from Veloroo for the duration of my stay.
Julia and Steve were a pleasure to deal with and the bike was mechanically sound and in excellent order, not missing a beat.
Delivery and pick up were efficient and I would definitely recommend Veloroo to my friends and use them again.August 2019
Bike hire par excellence. Steve and Julia do a remarkable job. From the very first inquiry throughout the whole month that I rode their bike it has been sensational - the beautiful environs, the impeccable service and care, the tour guiding which introduced me to one new area after the other coupled with super bike tips. This is the best bike hire experience I have ever had and have been doing this annually for seven years now. Vive la VeloRooMay 2017
