Mellow Vélos gains and Acuil Vélo award

At Mellow Vélos we specialise the bike hire on the Canal du Midi and surrounds and today we were presented with an Accueil Vélo plaque which is a French Quality Mark for Cycle Tourism.  It means that you can be guaranteed that when you hire a bike from Melow Velos you can be sure our bikes are safe clean and well maintained.

With Accueil Vélo, be a well-treated guest by France Vélo Tourisme’s partners !

This quality mark is similar to that you’ll find in certain other countries (e.g. Cyclists Welcome in UK, Bett & Bike in Germany or Welcome Cyclists around Quebec)

In France the quality mark Accueil Vélo concerns:

  • Accommodation
  • Restaurants
  • Tourist Offices
  • Bike rental and repair companies 
  • Places to visit

This mark refers to service providers located less than 5 km from a cycle route.

Thanks to Accueil Vélo, enjoy a warm welcome on France’s véloroutes and greenways !

Accueil Vélo, it’s the guarantee for the cyclist of :

  • Being within 5km of a cycle route
  • Having adapted equipment for cyclists: secured bicycle shelter, repair kit
  • Benefitting from a warm welcome (useful information and advice (routes, weather, etc…)
  • Having services adapted to cyclists: luggage transfert, washing and drying of linen, bicycle rental, bicycles washing…

Testing our Hire Bikes

So following on from all your lovely comments about Geoff I thought I would show the dedication that we at Mellow Vélos have to the quality of our product. We service our bikes after every rental but after a specified number of rentals or kilometres we test our bikes by riding them. This includes our children’s bikes. For some reason as I allocate who services what bikes I always seem to have to test the electrics and Geoff gets the rest. Here is Geoff testing a child’s bike. #mellowvelosparaza #bikehirecanaldumidi #holidaysinthesouthoffrance #canaldumidiavelo #cyclehirelangeudoc #bikehirefrance #veloelectriquefrance #wwgd #letsmakegeofffamous
