About us

Welcome to Seek Travel Ride, a website and podcast dedicated to cycle touring and exploring destinations on two wheels.

Our vision

The vision of Seek Travel Ride is to create an amazing community of people who love to get out and explore destinations on their bicycles. A place where people with lots of experience can share their knowledge with those looking to learn and embark on their own journey. We will achieve this through the Seek Travel Ride Podcast and the website.

Our story

Seek Travel Ride was launched in 2020 and started life as a website all about cycling in France, a place we had visited many times and loved cycling in. The site then catered predominantly to the road cycling market and people looking to cycle the iconic climbs in the Pyrenees and French Alps. In 2021, we launched a bespoke travel planning service to help others plan their own cycling holiday in France, whether it be roadside watching the Tour de France or spending time in the mountains.

In early 2023, Bella launched the Seek Travel Ride podcast, a dream she had for many years. The focus of the podcast is to share the stories of people who have, or are, undertaking amazing journeys by bicycle. As the podcast has grown over the last twleve months, the decision was made to turn Seek Travel Ride into a premier resource and community, centred around long distance cycling. This is a journey we started in early 2024 and one that will continue into the future.

The resources we have built up around road cycling in France have moved to a new site, Veloscapes Travel. This is still very much a work in progress but we are looking to develop it into a business to help anyone plan a cycling holiday to France, no matter the type or style of cycling enjoyed. There is still a lot of content to transfer from this site to the new one which will take some time yet.

We are fortunate to be able to spend our time between Australia and the French Pyrenees and are looking forward to many more cycling trips in the years ahead. We have a number of trips planned for the 2024 European summer and can’t wait to load up the panniers and hit the road once again.
