Experience beautiful Provence, France by bike. 2024 marks the 14th edition of the Velo Roussillon club and community cycling camp. This an invitation only event for VR club members, but for the first time ever the club has authorized The Applewood Manor to extend an invitation to their guests – we have 6 spots allocated to us. The camp fee includes everything (comprehensive support, all meals, wine, beer, on-bike nutrition and transportation) but airfare and rental bike cost, if any.

Please note that this event is not suitable for beginners. Happy attendees will have plenty of experience riding in groups and handling long fast mountain descents. However, the camp can accommodate a fairly wide range of fitness levels with on-road support and bail-out options. Maximum daily distances range from 80 to 140 miles. Contact us for more information.
