Velo Vercors

Advertorial for FRANCE Magazine

We are a small, specialist cycling holiday centre based at the foothills of the Vercors mountain range in South-Eastern France, south of Grenoble and north of Provence.

Situated in a quiet corner in the charming town of St.Jean-en-Royans with its wonderful array of cafes, restaurants, a weekly market and small specialist shops, including four bakers producing the most delicious home cooked bread and cakes daily.

It is the region where Roger (one half of Velo Vercors) finished his 12 year International and GB cycling career with a local club, also home to Charly Mottet - Yellow Jersey winner in the Tour de France.

We live here full time, are passionate about the region and cycling and have an intimate knowledge of the best cycling routes.

What is so special about this region is the ever changing landscapes within a very short distance; from the Alpine climbs, gorges, and high plateaux, to the rolling hills of the Drome to the flatter Isere Valley. It offers an endless choice of routes for the Elite Athlete wanting an Alpine challenge, to families wanting an active holiday to the enthusiastic convert.

We have routes to satisfy all levels of fitness and all our routes are chosen for their quietness, well surfaced roads, spectacular views, endless photo opportunities and great coffee and lunch stops.
