About Azur Vélo
At Azur Vélo, our mission is:
Azur Vélo training camps and cycling trips are designed to help you make the most of your time on the bike and off, in the spectacular setting of the French Riviera and the arrière pays niçois. Explore the challenging mountain roads of the Maritime Alps, ride along the stunning Riviera littoral, and enjoy the splendid backdrop of endless mountains, sea and charming villages.
We specialize in the bespoke active travel experience and work closely with our clients to put together highly individualized tour packages. Choose from a variety of accommodations in the countryside and along the coast, and choose the services and support you desire to enhance your Côte d'Azur active experience. Our ride guides and training camp directors are experienced cyclists and triathletes, and certified coaches who are eager to show you the best of the Maritime Alps à vélo, and share their knowledge with you so you can take your training to the next level - whether you are preparing for your race season, a specific event, or just trying to improve overall fitness.
Azur Vélo Founder and CEO Diana Panchyk is a lifelong athlete, with 14 years of experience racing road and mountain bikes in Europe and in the US, and 20+ years of competition in cycling, running and duathlon. A native New Yorker now living in a small mountain village, fluent in French and immersed in the local culture of the region, she knows the best kept secrets in the area – whether it’s a quaint café for a mid-ride pick-me-up, a fantastic hidden back road, a fabulous picnic area, or the training hotspots and secrets of local pro riders – her familiarity with the area and the regional culture will add an unforgettable special touch to your trip.
