I had one of the most wonderful biking experiences this fall with Velo Girl Tours. I finally found a company that ran a tour of The Parkway in its entirety! I did not think that the tour "would make" as there were an unusually small group of riders. But Jen and David honored their commitment and decided to go ahead... More

I have participated in several of their professionally operated events in Western North Carolina. Well organized, beautiful and fun filled rides, plenty of rest stops, safety is a high concern, great after event parties, and their clients always come first. No one is left behind other than their competition.

Velo Girl Rides may just be the perfect tour company. This is my second tour with Jennifer and David and during the 7 days it confirmed some feelings I had about their commitment to hospitality. Warm personal conversations, exceptional snacks and ride lunches, wonderful evening restaurant experiences, these were the same great experiences from the year before. Their own love... More

Velo Girl Jennifer took me on a fantastic amazing ride. She is a total pro at what she does, she communicated with me perfectly and was available to answer my millions of questions. She promised me "bragging rights" and she was right, we rode over 45 miles up to 5000 ft. elv. I was proud of my accomplishment....and I bragged... More

Jen and David were fantastic guides for our recent tour. Very well organised, great routes set up and great knowledge of the area in all regards. All the back up required was first class. Would highly recommend and would love to find the time to do another ride.

Jennifer, joined by her husband David, planned and guided me on a wonderful solo tour. They chose a spectacular route, were very friendly and companionable, and made the ride all the more interesting with their local and historical knowledge. It was a memorable ride that I shall remember with pleasure for a long time. David also imparted some riding tips,... More

I am am avid cyclist from Wyoming and contacted Jen for a day of riding while visiting the Black Mountain area. I like rural roads with lots of climbing. Jen delivered a beautiful route of twisting roads and scenic views. I never would have been able to figure out such an excellent ride on my own. Jen is very professional... More

I planned a trip to Asheville to work on my climbing skills. Since I am not a native to Western NC, I didn't know what routes to plan that would give me the climbing I was looking for while also being safe. I found Velo Girl Rides online and contacted Jen to ask if she would be willing to plan... More

Planning for tackling the route was spot on, with just the right amount of riding for each day, considering terrain etc. David and Jen were very knowledgeable and helpful in assisting us, and caring for the bikes. Accomodations were excellent and food choices were as well. D and J were very safety conscious, and helped keep us out of trouble... More
