Today was a very exciting day at Mellow Vélos. Jon-Allan Butterworth OBE a 2016 Paralympic Gold Medal winner in C1-5 750m Team Sprint and the winner of 3 Silver medals in the London games came to pick up a road bike for a friend. Vince was blown away to be standing talking to a Gold Medal Olympic Cyclist about training, the Olympic experience and medal ceremonies. Such a nice guy. Look out for him cycling in the region #mellowvelosparaza #bikehirecanaldumidi #holidaysinthesouthoffrance #canaldumidiavelo #cyclehirelangeudoc #bikehirefrance #paralympiccyclinggoldmedal #ilovemyjob #boyhooddreamcomestrue
We are really pleased to announce that we have taken delivery of our new Giant Liv Langma Ladies Road Bikes. As they are designed specifically for woman we decided we needed to get an experience world class cyclist to test them for us.

Vince and Sandra owners of Mellow Vélos asked me to test-ride one of their new Liv Ladies road bikes that they have recently ordered in for the new season 2019. I’m a very keen road cyclist and compete frequently and so was thrilled to have the opportunity to road -test a new lady’s bike.
I am pleased to say I was very impressed with it. A lovely, light and responsive ride, the frame being in high quality aluminium, fitted with the great Shimano 105 group-set . What I liked the most was the gear ratios of 34/50 on the front and a 11/34 11-speed cassette at the back, which allows cyclists ,with a big range of cycling abilities, to tackle the varied local terrain, without too much blood, sweat and tears. Mellow Vélos maintains their precious rental bikes extremely well and they supply each bike with puncture kit, pump, water bottle and bike computer and the pedals of your choice. Fantastic deal!
