Testimonials from our bicycle tour clients…
“For me the whole tour massively exceeded my expectations in every area – support / nutrition on the road, accommodation, meals, the meticulous planning, etc etc etc.”
“I absolutely loved every minute of it and wouldn’t have changed a thing.”
“The fact that you and David are such great, easy-going people as well, really added to the whole enjoyment of the experience.”
— Stuart Bray of the Cayman Islands hammered the Blue Ridge Parkway end to end in less than 5 days on a Custom Tour in 2015. A version of this rigorous trip is now offered as a scheduled tour: the 7 Day Blue Ridge Parkway Tour.
“I cannot say enough good things about my 10 days with both of you — simply amazing. The best thing about riding with VGR is Jen and David. They are experienced, knowledgeable, gracious, patient, tireless and thoughtful.”
“While the food on my other trips has been great, it is not always the most healthy. You did an excellent job of offering quality food, and as a result, got me thinking about how I’ll fuel in the future!”
— Angela Tekel of Waco, TX joined us on the 10 Day Blue Ridge Parkway Tour, September 2015.
“To coin a phrase, it was a beautiful cycling experience!”
“The legs feel incredibly strong today. True to your insights, the recovery ride, although daunting, was icing on the cake. Thank you for helping Bridget and I reach a goal about which we had doubts. Wow!!”
— Scott and Bridget Gilchrist of Black Mountain, NC on the Burkes Garden Century Tour, August 2015.
“I just want to thank you for the really wonderful bike tour and lunch we had with you. It lived up to and exceeded our expectations.”
“You were organized, informative and really knew how to provide what we needed. We wanted relatively flat terrain, super scenic views, and a craft brewery vegetarian lunch.”
— Alan and Robin Tobias of Brooklyn, NY asked for a custom one-day tour, 2015.
“Velo Girl Rides is an owner-operated tour company that provides a level of service and attentiveness above what we’ve had from the larger vendors”
“Jen is as sweet as can be and a pleasure to ride with, and David makes sure things are working and run on time. All in all, a well-run tour company!”
“We did a stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway with Velo Girl Rides. Our group of four had wildly varying skills/experience for a bike trip. Jen and David immediately caught on to each person’s strengths and weaknesses. They kept them in mind for the entire trip so that each of us had a wonderful experience.”
“They had a great snack at the end, and took us for a delicious lunch.”
“For the remainder of our vacation, whenever we were biking up a large hill I kept looking for David with his cowbell!”
— Sue Bona of Belle Mead, NJ had fun with one of our custom one-day tours of the Blue Ridge Parkway, in September 2014.
“I have ridden on a number of organized bike tours in North America, the Caribbean, and Europe. The level of organization and support provided by Velo Girl Rides ranks near the top of the list, as far as I’m concerned.”
“The food was plentiful and nourishing. I am signed up for the 2014 version as well, and my wife is planning on joining me.”
— Rick Dolegowski from Ontario Canada transited the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway twice, in 2013 and in 2014, on the 10 Day Blue Ridge Parkway Tour.
“Our group of nine had a fantastic day from start to finish. Jen and Dave picked us up at our hotel and transported us to our starting point west of Asheville.”
“Beautiful scenery: first stop was a local farm. Second was a potter. Arrived at Addison Farms Winery where we sampled each wine, then adjourned to an open-air tent where we feasted on a wonderful, three-course alfresco lunch. All the ingredients including the meat were sourced locally.”
“Jen and Dave were superb hosts — prepared, engaged, entertaining. I’d love to again with them!”
— Cotney of Lufkin TX participated in a Custom Cycle to Farm experience in July 2015.
