At Velo View Bike Tours, we believe cycling should be fun! And while we love nothing more than to take our guests on beautiful vacations across the country, we know that fun on a bike is not just about where you ride and the company you keep; it starts with the fundamentals of cycling. No matter how pretty the scenery, if your back hurts from poor form or you fail to take the proper safety precautions, a beautiful day on the bike can quickly turn sour.
That's why we're pleased to partner with Bicycle Sport Shop in offering basic skills and climbing clinics, focusing on the little details that add up to a more efficient, safe and comfortable ride. We're also happy to take cyclists wanting a little more personalized attention on one-on-one rides in town, providing a personal coaching session based on their unique obstacles and priorities.
In addition to our in-town rides, we offer hill country day trips and three-day weekends, allowing cyclists to enjoy some of the best low-traffic backroads the hill country has to offer. These trips are perfect for groups prepping for charity events like the Real Ale Ride since we cover many of the same roads used in those rides!
We also provide interactive maps of popular cycling routes around Central Texas on our website. While we recommend taking advantage of your local shop rides (Bicycle Sport Shop has numerous options), we also recognize that the timing doesn't always work out. For those occasions when you're on your own, take a look at our index of local routes to find a ride with the right distance and degree of difficulty for you.
Whether you're new to cycling or just wanting a change of pace, we encourage you to contact us to learn more about the many ways we can help make your ride more fun!
