Outline:

Velusso offers unique holidays – combining the challenge of professional cycling with the luxuries of a private villa in north-west Mallorca at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana.

The island provides stunning routes and spectacular scenery, and Velusso ensures that its guests receive first-class care and support spanning fitness plans, massage and professional nutrition; a team car and experienced mechanic; and a professional cyclist to act as guide and coach.

In addition to the founders, the company comprises two further Loughborough graduates – Grant Brown (Sport and Exercise Science, 2013 and Business Psychology, 2017) and, Wiggins Team member, Daniel Patten (Sports Science with Management, 2008). Stacey Kelly (Soigneur) and Conor Dunne (Cycling Consultant and Ride Guide) complete the team.

Their shared passion for the sport and breadth of experience ensure that guests enjoy an outstanding, life-enhancing cycling experience.

And the company’s pedigree reveals their credentials for creating the ideal environment to meet a challenge. As Velo7, the team successfully achieved the Guinness World Record: Race across Europe by bike – raising more than £17,000 for Cyclists Fighting Cancer in the process.

Velusso is proud to continue its support of CFC which donates specially adapted bikes, tandems and trikes to young people affected by cancer.
