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.

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
Good bike and great friendly service
I rented a bike this week from Steve and Julia/ VeloRoo which is my second year doing so. They provide a great service in this region for cyclists including delivery of the bike. It was a good road bike and in great order. The cycling territory here is great. I can recommend VeloRoo highly, and will be back. August 2019
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.
