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-baggers to boot. A 'hidden gem' for those wanting a serious, mind blowing cycling experience.

We offer a very personal, friendly 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.

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. As Cyclist magazine discovered 'With its towering cliffs, precarious hanging roads and stunning scenery, the Vercors region should be teeming with riders but, its blissfuly tranquil'. (April 2015)

Cycling Credentials

We fell in love with the Vercors and surrounding region over 20 years ago when Roger signed to a local 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, Charly Mottet. Although Roger is no longer with us his legacy lives on in his nephew Conor Dunne, who has signed his first pro contract with Aqua Blue Sport, Ireland's first UCI professional Continental cycling Team. Conor is a frequent visitor where he finds the terrain, tranquil roads and home comforts the perfect training base.

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 from

We also have a small stock of road bikes, Scott or Trek hybrid bikes, children's bikes, tagalongs & childseats. 


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.
