In August 2006 I arranged a 5 day bicycle trip in the French Pyrenees for my wife and myself, our 3 children aged 27, 25, and 18, plus our daughter’s fiancé – it was absolutely fabulous. Velo Loco arranged a special itinerary for us after we had discussed our requirements – they provided bikes, arranged the accommodation, transported our luggage between hotels, and then left us to enjoy the holiday. Most of the cycling was on routes used by The Tour de France, climbing over typically two cols per day. It was quite superb to feel some closeness to the great Tour, and to stop at the cafes on the cols with the satisfaction of knowing that we had cycled there ourselves. For the last day and a half we left the routes of The Tour and headed out into the farming area of the lower slopes of the Pyrenees – this was also a fascinating part of our trip, especially when we came across the main street of a village closed off for the weekly market day, and joined in the general festivities.

Velo Loco did a great job – the bikes were great, the route was great, the food was great, and the cycling was great. One of the great delights was finding what quaint and/or charming pension we had been booked in to each night – they were all excellent. Velo Loco provided all the support required, and yet we felt we were enjoying our own adventure.

It was great to spend a week doing something as a family that gave us such a sense of achievement. We’re not especially sporty but we easily managed to cycle 20 or even 30 kms day. David and Sam couldn't have been more helpful in completely tailoring the trip to suit us. So we avoided the hassle of organizing everything, but it still felt as though we we’re traveling independently and experiencing the real France.

On a recent trip with friends to the south of france i hired some bikes from velo loco and couldn't have been happier with the friendliness and wonderful care that was taken to make sure we had a wonderful trip. we hired several adult bikes and a childs tag-along bike which were delivered by david and adjusted to accomodate our groups specific needs. Being able to hire bikes in france from the u.s. via the internet and being so wonderfully suprised by the incredible service was amazing. I recommend velo loco to anybody who asks about bike hires in france.
Looking foreward to my next adventure with sam & david at velo loco!!!

So our adventure is now barely a distant memory but I thought that I'd write to let you know that we made the entire trip without any mishap; not even a puncture in 2 bikes that each did 1300 km, that's kevlar for you. Left you and ascended through the mist and over the cols before a picturesque descent into Vicdessous for a second breakfast (banana bread came to the fore). After that it was pretty plain sailing over to the Languedoc with stops at Mirepoix and Cabezac (fantastic hotel). Met up with the remainder of the family and enjoyed 2 weeks of sunshine. Thank you so much for your warm welcome and hospitality in your home. I would also thank you, Dave, for the new chain which cleared up the slipping. Hope that your business is a great success and look forward to seeing you again sometime.

When I cycled with David, it was perfect for me because, although only 15 years old, I have done quite alot of mountain biking and my parents couldn't keep up with me. So they found David at VeloLoco to take me on a 3 hour trail. It was awesome. Great scenery, great trail, David knew the area well, goes as fast (or slow) as you want, is interesting to talk to and made my parents feel I was safe! Highly recommended.

We are a family of 5 , parents and 3 grown up children ages 18-25. We were looking for a way to see France by bike with our kids , but not as part of an organized trip. David and Samantha at Veloloco put together a 6 day trip for us to bike through thre Pyrenees that was perfect. They provided all the planning, made the reservations, provided the bikes, and moved our luggage. We rode through the most beautiful countryside on a route that David provided that kept us off busy roads, stayed at some lovely small inns , B&B's, and hotels, ate wonderful food and had good wine each night.
The bikes ,the planning, route selection, all were tailored to exactly what we wanted and allowed our family to have one of best vacations we have taken at a price we could afford.
