Owner | Quality Control
Hi, my name is JR Thompson, I am the founder here at Veloscapes. We are a small passionate tour operator specializing in custom road and gravel cycling experiences.
What’s your ideal bicycle “escape” look like?
Let’s make it happen!
First and foremost, our mission is to provide you with a safe and successful travel experience! We focus on old-school customer service, detailed planning, industry-leading ride support, and exploring world-class riding destinations!
We dig deep to find the best local rides available! To be considered for any Veloscapes itinerary, a route must be well researched and up to the quality, Veloscapes feels proud to share with our guests.
Founder J.R. Thompson has both a professional bicycle racing and bicycle industry background. J.R. pursued a passionate twelve-year mountain bike racing career which included numerous professional bicycle race wins. With over twenty-five years of bike shop experience, J.R. has polished his industry knowledge. J.R.’s cycling passion and industry expertise are apparent in every Veloscapes experience.
From the time you wake up until the time you go to bed, we focus on customer service that is friendly, flexible, detailed, and determined to amaze you. Whether it’s tracking down fresh baked goods and coffee in the morning, making that super fresh lunch during the ride, or working late giving your bicycle a little extra attention—we strive to get it right.
Safe, clean, and finely-tuned bicycles are key to each day’s ride. Every Veloscapes trip comes with a professional level mechanic, and your bicycle is well looked after. A repair stand, bicycle tools, small parts, chain lube, and cleaning supplies are provided.
FOOD + DRINK
We seek out the freshest artisan cafes, markets, and authentic local cuisine. We also recognize everyone has their favorite culinary tastes and work individually with our clients to ensure the best possible food is available!
CAFES + COFFEE
A local café with fresh baked goods and quality coffee is always a delight. This is typically one of the first points of interest on any Veloscapes outing.
