About Seek Travel Ride

We embarked on our first cycling holiday to France with our bikes in 2013. Knowing absolutely nothing about planning a cycling trip before we left, there were lots we needed to figure out. In fact, we had never travelled internationally with bikes before. Needless to say, we learned a lot on that trip. We also fell in love with riding in the amazing setting we watched on TV during the Tour de France for so many years. At the end of that holiday, whilst waiting for the plane home at Paris airport, we pledged to return again the following year – and we did.

Since then with each subsequent cycling holiday to France, we’ve enjoyed exploring more areas to ride. Finding hidden gems and learning so much more about travelling with a bike. Our passion for cycling in France meant we encouraged our friends to come and join us on subsequent trips. The feedback we received made it apparent just how much knowledge we’ve accumulated regarding riding in France.

We set up SeekTravelRide.com to help others successfully plan and enjoy their cycling holiday to France. Our personal experience showed us that no one website existed covering everything required about riding in France. SeekTravelRide.com consolidates all that information into one handy resource. We have a lot of knowledge to share with you, and we hope by doing this will help you to Seek your destination, Travel there and Ride.

In 2020 we left Australia and moved initially to Ireland, before arriving in France in 2021. Now based in the beautiful Pyrenees we are able to spend more time exploring other parts of France and expanding our offering on the website. Over 2022 our goal is to broaden the appeal of the site from just road cycling in France to include cycling touring, bike packing and leisure cycling. We have launched a YouTube channel to share our experiences and provide lots of information to help others plan and be inspired to visit France.

SeekTravelRide.com is independent and as such we have steered clear of recommending specific accommodation providers, rental hire companies, airlines and restaurants. Whilst we certainly have our own personal favourites we also realise that not everyone shares the same tastes or budgets as we do. Instead, we have provided links to other websites which contain a range of details and reviews to help you decide what is best for you. These days so many reviews are available on the likes of tripadvisor.com, booking.com, Airbnb etc. which canvas a broad range of travellers and will better help you decide what is best for your tastes.

Affiliate Programs

To be able to continue to provide you with great content, SeekTravelRide.com is funded through advertising and affiliate links on the site. We receive a small commission, at no cost to you, if you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase through that supplier. We only list websites that we have tried and tested ourselves and know to be reputable suppliers.


Both of us are keen photographers and hence the majority of images on our site have been taken by ourselves. All our images are subject to copyright and may not be reproduced without our permission. In instances where we have used images taken by others, we have accredited the photographer where required and listed the appropriate image rights.
