A long weekend? The French Riviera, from Mentone to Nice by bicycle

The landscapes and the light were the appeal in the Côte d'Azur for many artists of the '900,  a tour on their routes can't disregard the visit of some museums. 

The first stop suggested is at the small town of Mentone close to the Italian border where could visit the museum Musée Jean Cocteu, the work of Rudy Ricciotti who decorated, a few miles further, in Villafranche-sur-Mer, the chapel Saint-Pierre.

We found an interesting blog post about the Museum Jean Cocteau in Mentone at this link.

The lemon is one of the symbols of the city of Menton, where thanks to a very mild Mediterranean climate, many lemon groves bear fruit, and, since 1933, the Lemon Festival takes place in the city, which takes place within the last three weekends of February.

A charming way to visit Provence is to follow the ancient Roman streets. 

From Aix-en-Provence take the via aurelia and continue to Arles, a UNESCO World Heritage city with its ancient center, Roman and Romanesque monuments and museums such as that of Arles Antique.

Before leave Aix-en-Provence we suggest a break at the “Madeleines de Christophe shop who is close by Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, in the historic town centre of Aix-en-Provence. Made in a traditional way on a daily basis (in Peynier), their "madeleines" are suited to all tastes: plain, lemon, orange, almond, chocolate, rum and even vanilla. 
The shop also sells cannelés, cakes and macaroons!

Continue towards Avignon to visit the palace of the Popes and walk through the alleys of the city, buy a watercolor from one of the street artists and photograph the opera house.

We then go to Nimes, a candidate for UNESCO heritage, to visit Arènes and perhaps attend the historical re-enactment of the Great Roman Games (normally organized at the end of each month of April). In Nimes you can visit the Carré d'Art designed by Norman Foster.

Some other places to visit: the "Pont du Gard", the Roman aqueduct-bridge and the "triumphal arch" in Orange, ending the route to Vaison-la-Romaine with its archaeological sites. 

For those who want you can go back on your way by taking the Via Domizia and enjoy your cycling training at the Luberon, in the heart of Provence.

A Veloce forest to offset Co2.



In a bid to offset our CO2, we partnered with our mates at Tree-Nation to support their forestry efforts. 

When you rent a bike from Veloce you are supporting the Veloce's forest: 
Veloce plants a tree every 100€ spent by the customers on bicycle rental services to offset the CO2 emissions produced by the company during the production processes, including the delivery! 

The planted trees are certified by Tree-Nation ONG.

A Veloce little forest will grow as we do.

BUT WHY DO THIS? 

CO2 emissions contribute to climate change. 
To offset the CO2 emissions trees have a critical job to balance oxygen & CO2 levels. With deforestation across the world more CO2 is released into the atmosphere causing devastating effects on our planet. Rising temperatures contribute to rising sea levels, with warmer ocean temperatures threatening wildlife & leading to extinction. 

We accept our responsibility to work towards offsetting our emissions.

Cycling Phlegraean fields: the Casina Vanvitelliana eighteenth-century romantic building by Luigi & Carlo Vanvitelli

lake fusaro full carbon road bike rental in Naples cycling excursions and tours paths routes things to do
Cycling Phlegraean fields, having a break at the Casina Vanvitelliana on Fusaro lake.

Today we would share with you some details of a stunning place where we suggest to stop to enjoy a break when you are biking the bay of Naples on south Italy: the lake Fusaro and the Casina Vanvitelliana.

The lake Fusaro is located in the municipality of Bacoli and gives its name to the homonymous village that welcomes it. The lake was formed with the closure of the stretch of sea between the hamlets of Torregaveta and Cuma.

In ancient times it was identified with the mythical Acherusia palus, the infernal swamp formed by the river Acheronte.

Before the Greeks, the local populations cultivated mussels and oysters in the lake. The farms of the lake are mentioned in the novel The Count of Montecristo by Alexandre Dumas, when the count serves at the table in his house of Auteuil a lamprey coming directly from Lake Fusaro among the amazement of the diners.

Since 1752 ​the Fusaro land, at the time sparsely inhabited, became the hunting and fishing reserve of the Bourbons, who entrusted Luigi Vanvitelli with the first works for the transformation of this place.

When Ferdinando IV ascended the throne, the interventions were completed by Carlo Vanvitelli, son of Luigi, who in 1782 built the Royal Casino of Hunt, on the lake, a short distance from the shore.

This building, known as Casina Vanvitelliana, was used as the residence of illustrious guests, such as Francis II of Habsburg-Lorraine, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Gioachino Rossini and, more recently Luigi Einaudi, the President of the Italian Republic Luigi Einaudi.

The Casina Vanvitelliana is one of the most refined eighteenth-century buildings of Italy. 
The project have some references to the shape of the Stupinigi hunting lodge, designed a few years earlier by Filippo Juvarra using plastic volumes and large windows.

The building wanted by the Bourbons has in fact a very articulated design, composed by three octagonal bodies that intersect each other at the top of the other, shrinking into a sort of pagoda, with large windows on two levels.

A long wooden pier also connects the Casina Vanvitelliana to the lake shore.

It's time to plan an cycling holiday to Italy, Style Magazine Italia tells about Veloce bike rental services.

style magazine italia cicloturismo bike rental veloce bicicletta vacanze 2020 coronavirus covi-19

Today I want to share with you this article that tells about Veloce Bike Rentals & Experiences published on Style Magazine Italia by Corriere della Sera

This article tells about the chance to discover a sustainable tourism, off the beaten path of classical tourism. 

This post is very precious for us because it crowns 10 years of hard work, millions of miles driven by our logistics, many sacrifices and perhaps a sign of market metamorphosis, a great opportunity for our brand. 

I am grateful to the editorial staff especially to - Alessandro Calascibetta - Style Magazine Italia Editor-in-Chief for the splendid work done in realistically telling this splendid world of bicycle and sustainable tourism, made by such beauty. 

This is the link to read the complete article.  

Now it's official: Giro d'Italia 2020, finally confirmed the new dates. From 3rd to 25th October.

giro italia 2020 dates news
Ph. Credit: Velia Cammarano, a shot of the Giro in Naples

Now it's officialGiro d'Italia 2020 will take place from 3rd to 25th October

In addition, the great classics of Italian cycling will be held during the summer: 

- Strade Bianche: 1st of August - Milan-Sanremo: 8th August- Tirreno-Adriatico: from 7th to 14th September
Lombardy will be held a few days after the Giro on 31 October.
From 20 October to 8 November the Vuelta Espana

No surprise for the Tour de France, already scheduled from 29 August to 20 September, despite the stop to mass events decided by the French government until the end of August, therefore probably with the first days without an audience on the street. 

"The new calendar obeys a logic that offers maximum opportunities for different types of cyclists: alternating stage races and one-day races in August, which will allow cyclists to gradually adapt to the rhythm of the competition after three months of limited activity for some; the events Tour de France, UCI Road World Championships, Giro d'Italia, Ardennes and Flanders; and to close the season, the Vuelta ".

Cycling Costa del Sol, Spain. Discover El Chorro and El Caminito del rey, full carbon road bike rental in Malaga, Spain.
Our customers enjoy guided tours in El Chorro and El Caminito del Rey routes.


El Chorro ("The Cascade") is a small village located in Málaga (Andalusia) in southern Spain, near the town of Álora. It is one of the most popular rock climbing attractions in Spain as it is located next to Desfiladero de los Gaitanes ("Gorge of the Gaitanes").

This village is frequented by cyclists, hikers, and campers.

Gorge of the Gaitanes is famous for a scary walkway called Caminito del Rey (King's Pathway) which hangs 100m above the base of the gorge. The path provided access to a hydro-electric system and took its name from an official visit by Alfonso XIII of Spain in 1921. 

The gorge runs from the outlet of the "Embalse del Gaitanejo" to "El Chorro". There are two extremely narrow sections at each end of the gorge with a wider bowl in between. In addition to the re-furbished walkway, the old Málaga-Cordoba railway line runs through the gorge in a set of tunnels and bridges.

The gorge features prominently as a place of escape and refuge for the main characters played by Stephen Boydand Brigitte Bardot in the 1958 movie The Night Heaven Fell.
The railway and sections of the Caminito were used in the final location shots of the 1965 adventure film Von Ryan's Express.

They are funny places where to enjoy exclusive cycling experience with our local guides and our high end full carbon road bike rental services provided by our company with delivery at your accommodation in Malaga, Andalusia region of Spain.

Voikokilia gold sandy beach in Grece

Three most beautiful beaches in Messinia:
  • Kolopanas, near Petrochori
  • Glossa, frequented by naturists
  • Voikokilia: the most beautiful beach in Messinia, about 40 km from Kalamata, between the sea and the Gialova lagoon.

Voidokilia is the most popular beach in Messinia: it overlooks the Ionian Sea in the historical region of Peloponnese, in Greece. Its fine sand forms a semicircular strip of dunes, similar to the omega letter. It is part of Natura 2000, a protected area and bird habitat.
Above the beach of Voidokilia is the Nestor's Cave, and above still there are the ruins of the thirteenth century which once made up the magnificence of the castle of old Pylos or Palaiokastro.
Today, despite its historical relevance, Voidokilia is trampled on by tourists: all eager to enjoy its beauty from the fine sand and emerald sea that enters the curious omega-shaped basin.

Cycling Apuan Alps in Tuscany, full carbon road bike rental in Camaiore.

Few photos received by our customers from British Quadrathlon Team who enjoyed cycling on Apuan Alps in Tuscany using our full carbon road bike rentals provided with delivery and collection at their accommodations. 

The Apuan Alps are a mountain range in northern Tuscany, Italy. They are included between the valleys of the Serchio and Magra rivers, and, to the northwest, the Garfagnana and Lunigiana, with a total length of approximately 55 kilometres (34 mi).

The chain formed out of sea sediments in the middle Triassic period, somewhat earlier than the rest of the Apennines, and on a rather different geological structure. Over time, these sediments hardened into limestone, dolomite, sandstone, and shale. Harsh pressure approximately 25 million years ago transformed the limestone in many places into the Carrara marble (named for the nearby city of Carrara) for which the range is renowned. Erosion carved much of the remaining sedimentary rocks into a jagged karst topography.

The highest peak of the Apuan Alps is the Monte Pisanino, at 1,946 metres (6,385 ft).

All this beauty in North Tuscany!
