Cycling Holidays with Velo Vercors

We are a specialist, owner run cycling company located in the spectacular Vercors National Park and gateway to the Alps. Soaring limestone cliffs, vertiginous drops to the valleys below, cliff hanging roads, gorges, canyons, rivers and grassy plateau the Vercors is home to some of the most impressive roads in France and also regularly visited by the Tour de France.

Spectacular scenery at every turn, little traffic, superb road surfaces and no col-blaggers to boot. A 'hidden gem' for those wanting a serious, mind blowing cycling experience.

We offer a very personal, 'hands on' service to make sure your discovery of this unique region is unforgettable. Our extensive  hand chosen choice of routes range from challenging to family friendly and we are perfectly positioned for unforgettable day rides into the gorges and Alpine climbs situated on the western side of the Vercors range and the rolling hills of the Drome and flatter Isere Valley.

This unique region is where Roger finished his 12 year semi-pro cycling career and he is on hand to guide, advise and share his training tips.

From our 'one stop' cycling base we offer:

Discover a hidden gem without the crowds

Our location in the heart of a 'real rural' French town offers you the opportunity to leave the fast lane behind and experience a more relaxed, easy going French pace of life. St.Jean-en-Royans has a weekly market where you can buy direct from local farmers and producers and a superb infrastructure of cafes, restaurants and shops including 4 bakers, a butcher, a deli, greengrocers selling local, home made, seasonal foods and famous Cotes de Rhone wine. The boutique shops, chemists,banks, tourist office, church means its quite possible to spend many happy hours strolling around when you are not cycling. A short stroll to the top of town will bring you to the open air swimming pool with the Vercors mountain range as the backdrop - sheer bliss.

Cycling Credentials

We fell in love with the Vercors and surrounding region over 20 years ago when Roger was signed to the VCRP team in the nearby town of Romans-sur-Isere for the last 2 years of his 12 year International/GB cycling career. The club was also home to the Tour de France yellow Jersey holder and local boy, Charley Mottet.

Having trained and raced in the region, experienced the highs, lows, determination and stamina it takes to be an elite cyclist Roger is here to pass on his cycling knowledge, nutritional advice and top tips on Alpine climbing and descending. 

Bike Rental

If you don't want the hassle of bringing your own bike you can hire from a selection of Top Spec Carbon and Aluminium road bikes, Scott or Trek hybrid bikes, children's bikes, tagalongs or childseats.

Travel

We are an easy destination to get to by train, plane or car for a week or a weekend. 7 hours door to door from London, St.Pancras to Valence TGV. For non-cyclists or those who also want a different experience there is a huge variety of other activities and sightseeing interests.

A wonderful base to explore the beautiful surrounding cols with ample opportunity to kill yourself chasing the fast boys up the hills... Roger is a fantastic guide...great hospitality thank you.
