Velocamps is a vastly experienced, premium cycling tour operator, taking groups on bespoke trips to the Alps, Pyrenees and throughout mainland France; as well as Italy, Spain and the rest of Europe. Velocamps also attend the big sportives, such as L’Etape Du Tour, La Marmotte, Maratona dles Dolomites and the mighty Tour Du Mont Blanc.
Velocamps will use this experience to create the David Millar Tours, resulting in stunning and at times challenging routes, unrivalled support, first class accommodation and stress free logistics. Added to this proven formula clients will ride with David who will be an integral part of the team for each tour, giving a unique opportunity to get to know him and find out all about life in the professional peloton.
James Pybus from Velocamps said:
“It’s fantastic to have David on board and exciting to launch this new partnership which combines great cycling and the chance to spend time with one of the peloton’s most colourful characters. David is well known to cycling fans having had a long and successful racing career, written a best selling book and a now respected TV pundit. Cycling alongside him on iconic and picturesque roads, and picking his brains over dinner is something any cycling fan will love. ”
While the routes will be challenging, the tours are about creating a premium and enjoyable all round experience for all guests. Each tour will have three guides and three support vehicles to look after the 25 guests, allowing for a variety of cycling abilities to enjoy the tour at different paces. Mechanics will be on hand to set up bikes on the first morning, should this be required. The guides all have detailed local knowledge, meaning beautiful, low-traffic routes and stops at only the best cafes. Hotels have been carefully selected to ensure excellent food, fine accommodation and picturesque scenery.
Velocamps have a wealth of experience and excellent local contacts, meaning if you need advice or assistance on bike hire, massage, or anything else to make your trip as easy and enjoyable as possible, please just call us.
Cycling some of Europe’s most beautiful routes, alongside one of cycling’s most interesting and outspoken characters; the David Millar Tours are an opportunity not to be missed!
