‘Your desire to give everything possible to your customers is evident from the airport pick up, right through until the end of the trip. You have without doubt given me some of the greatest cycling memories of my life’

Tom Marvin

‘The two trips I’ve done with Velovation have been two of the best riding holidays I’ve had. Mark and his team not only guide fantastic routes but have picked some amazing places to stay and eat. Having van support means you can just clip in and ride, with all the logistics taken care of. Thoroughly recommended!’

Kent Velo Girls is a cycle club based in Hildenborough, Kent. As a change from tackling the local hills, a group of 8 of us hired two chalets in Morzine for 5 nights and set about planning an alpine cycling challenge. As a result of a personal recommendation we employed the services of Mark and Tony at Velovation to lead and support two of our rides. During the planning process they gave us a number of alternative routes with a variety of destinations, elevations and distances. We chose a route from Morzine to Annecy on one day and to Lake Geneva on another.  We all enjoyed the luxury of Velovation’s support; routes chosen along the quietest and most scenic roads, pit stops with delicious food and a vehicle in which to carry extra layers for the chilly downhill sections. Mark and Tony supported us with a quiet confidence, expertly judging our pace and ensuring everyone within the group arrived in one piece with a smile on their face.  They were fun company, extremely thoughtful and we look forward to embarking on another challenge using their services next year.”

I have been on two fabulous rides in France with Velovation – La Route des Grandes Alpes  and Mont Ventoux to Antibes . Vital ingredients for ride leaders are knowledge of route and patience with riders! Both of these were met in Velovation, the result being that all we had to do was pedal, enjoy the scenery and not feel pressured about the pace! Fuel stops were invariably in a scenic location with a delicious spread waiting which had been prepared by Velovation. An extra bonus was to have a talented cameraman in the Velovation team  to capture special moments on the rides. Strongly recommended for a challenging yet relaxed tour!

I just wanted to say what a great trip you and Tony organised with Georgie. Couldn’t fault it. Superb organisation, comforting attention to detail, attending to every little concern of the group. We felt pampered to the extreme. Some great rides you had scouted, I could do them all over again tomorrow. And the fact that you were open to diversions from your planned course to try something new, added to the moment. Counting down the days to Italy 2017 which will be another high point of my cycling year.
