We Deliver

So as many of my friends here in Paraza and surrounds will attest Mellow Vélos will deliver pretty much anywhere in the region or pretty much anywhere. For many reasons it can be quite scary just how much driving we do and how much Google records.  There is no hiding – Vince stopped for coffee on the way back from Toulouse and Google sent me a review to complete.

























Along with the driving I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time in carparks all over the region waiting for complete strangers to appear – in some countries this practise is often illegal.

So I thought I would show you some of my favourite delivery locations

1 Colliure

oysters at Collioure




















A beautiful location a bit hilly but perfect for an electric bike or a road bike.  I like delivering her as it usually means a glass of wine and a plate of oysters before we return home.


















Who does not like a trip to the medieval city of Carcassonne and its many carparks. We probably visit Carcassonne at least once per day in the summer delivering bikes to clients who want to ride Carcassonne to Narbonne or Carcassonne to Sete.  Many of our clients who start their bike holiday in Carcassonne are from Tour companies such as Macs Adventures, Inn Travel, S-Cape, DeTours in France and LoveVelo but we also have a large number of independent travellers who we work with on routes, accommodation and baggage transfers. This is probably my favourite carpark in Carcassonne.

We probably deliver our hire bikes to Toulouse once or twice a week to both Tour Company clients such as DeTours in France and private clients who are cycling the Canal du Midi from Toulouse to Sete.  We normally do not use carparks but illegally parked on the pavement with our magic parking lights on.  Toulouse is a vibrant cosmopolitan city with amazing restaurants and pavement cafes.  If we have time we will wander into the centre of Toulouse and have a cup of coffee but we never seem to have time for a visit to Primani.

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

Introducing of new Giant Liv Langma

We are really pleased to announce that we have taken delivery of our new Giant Liv Langma. As they are designed specifically for woman we decided we needed to get an experience world class cyclist to test them for us.
Gillian Vanessa Annesley is a well-known cyclist riding locally with  Vélo Club Lezignan  and competing in several UCI Grand Fondo World Championships. She combines her love of cycling and cooking by offering cycling h0lidays in her stunning Gite – Cycle d’Oc   ( Offering a series of guided and non-guided rides she shares with you her training rides and introduces you to the quiet backroads of this Tour de France area.
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!
