Founder of VeloTopo, Jean-Philippe has spent a lifetime traversing the world’s most epic far-flung corners. From sweltering jungle to kayaking the Central American coastline, climbing the Himalayas and riding Europe’s most challenging mountain passes, he understands what it takes to make a great itinerary work.
Unlike larger tour companies, VeloTopo has the rarity of being unique. From our very first encounter to the final farewell – we ensure that every moment of your adventure has been fully custom-crafted to suit - not just your cycling style, but your unique vision of what a life-changing cycling tour entails.
To your skill and expertise at designing unforgettable custom tours for an old cyclist like me, chapeau! VeloTopo is without peer and is the best of the best. ~Tony Medina
Nothing But Hands-On Experience
We don’t pick our cycling routes or rest stops out of a book. From the lofty peaks of the Pyrenees to the drama of the Dolomites, we have pedaled and panted through every nook and cranny of Europe’s best cycling destinations, so that we have nothing but hands on experience and local knowledge when mapping out your route.
Rare and Revitalizing Cycling Routes
To us, bespoke isn’t just another marketing buzzword, it’s how we build our world and we are anything but commercial in our approach. Even for those who want to take well-trodden routes, embark on Tour de France cycling tours, and hit the world’s favorite mountains, we still make sure that our personalized itineraries show you something rare and revitalizing at every turn.
Bespoke Bike Trips to Suit Your Style
From the secluded mountain climbs of the Alps to the dramatic valley vistas along the Giro d’Italia, every turn we take is tried and tested before giving it to our guests. As we hand-design each and every itinerary, we make sure that nothing is left to chance. As experienced cyclists ourselves, we only want to take you on rides that we know and love, because we know the finest routes can’t be found in tourist guidebooks, but come from those who already have a deep relationship with these regions.
Tried and Tested Knowledge at Every Turn
Our stay here on this amazing earth may be swift, but we can celebrate every second when we take to the world on two wheels. Calling on our decades of experience, personal encounters, and long list of tried and tested local knowledge – we provide our clients with all the ingredients for a truly unforgettable sojourn through Europe’s best cycling destinations.
Whatever landscape, corner or challenge you have imagined, we are waiting to map out the best direction with a fully-personalized cycling tour.
