Drop weight and save money!

by

Have you ever spent big dollars on a new bit of bike bling with the justification that it saves weight? Me too.

Do you carry more electronic goodies than is really necessary? Me too.

Are your jersey pockets bulging with stuff?

I possibly carry more than most people because, well it is my job. Camera, Phone, a couple of tubes, pump, the list goes on. Less is more, so I started looking around.

With the technology in phones nowadays, I could ditch the camera and use the phone, but I’d still have to fumble for it, so I had a look at putting it on the handle bars. After much researching I found a product called the Quad Lock. What sets Quad Lock apart from other similar products was its simple mechanical locking system and big lever to release the phone. A shock and waterproof phone case will protect the phone as best as possible out on the road.

To replace the computer, I have downloaded the most comprehensive app, Cyclometer GPS. It does everything that the computer did but on the phone.

So in one swoop I have dropped the camera and computer off the scales and out of my jersey pocket. Probably the best part of 500grams, and saved $1,000 not replacing the computer or the camera, bonus!

The best part is … you can too!

Quad Lock have come on board with VéloRoo and are offering a very generous 20% discount off all products when you order on line and use the code VéloRoo at the checkout! How cool is that!

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.

We've hired cycles around the South of France for the last 5 years for our long cycling weekend in September. Veloroo were by far the best company we've come across.
Their cycles are first class and extremely well maintained, they deliver and collect for a reasonable fee, they are really knowledgeable in the area and above all Julia and Steve are really nice people.
You wont find better!Sep 2017
Dream service in cycling paradise
Very good albeit not top end sportive bike. Drop off and pick up service including a nice chat about life and cycling in the Languedoc. You really could never ever hope for more. When I was leaving, I phoned to suggest pick up. They were there in 15 minutes.
I will obviously use them next time, not even a question. So should you.June 2019
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
