Background

VeloSante is a cycling services company that produces safe, custom cycling tours and event support for retailers, teams, clubs, organizations and groups of cycling enthusiasts.

Premier cycling destinations include the Natchez Trace Parkway, Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive, Florida's Hill Country and the northern tier of the United States.

Part of the year is focused on producing the Big Ride Across America, a 3300 mile, 48 day bicycle event.  A percentage of the proceeds is donated to a charitable organization.

VeloSante is a small company focused on personalized service.  Clients deal directly with the owners, Charlton DuRant and Lynn Petrotte.

Charlton DuRant

Cycling took a strong hold on Charlton in his youth as he spent six years, including high school, in Europe riding, racing and commuting. A few highlights of his cycling experiences include: Bicycle messenger in New York City, manager of two bike shops and part owner of a third, organizer for the Tour DuPont and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Torch Relay, coach, promoter of United States Cycling Federation training camps and races. Charlton directs the Big Ride Across America. 

Lynn Petrotte 

Lynn has enjoyed the freedom of bicycling since she was a child.  In 2000, she achieved her goal of riding every mile of the Big Ride Across America.  Lynn has developed into an enthusiastic fitness/commuter/mountain bike rider. She is fluent in Spanish and has a master's in bilingual administration.  When not cycling, Lynn occasionally works as a watersports guide and instructor, studies yoga, plays in the outdoors and explores new places.  She also dabbles in wholesome cuisine and is a gracious host. Lynn handles administration for VeloSante and is assistant director of the Big Ride Across America.

 

Together, Charlton and Lynn find their bliss while bikepacking in beautiful places. http://velosante.tumblr.com/

So, if you are going on a bike trip & VeloSante is supporting it, only a fool isn't going to reserve their services.  It was fantastic.  Charlton & Lynn are the freaking bomb of service.  I now have new names to add to my list of friends.  Thanks! dp

Thank you for everything! It was a real pleasure to meet you both.  You are an incarnation of "delighting the customer".  Beyond making arrangements for providing a bike and door-to-door transportation, your warm welcome each day added an extra dimension to the trip.  And no one can beat Charlton's vignettes from his past when it comes to scintillating conversation!  Thank you so much for making this a wonderful trip.  I hope to join you again on another trip.   -Barbara

Thank you, you made my dream come true. - Big Rider Alumni

The Natchez trip is one of the best biking experiences that I have ever had.  Lynn and Charlton did an outstanding job with all aspects of the trip. Everything was well organized and planned.  I would not hesitate to book another trip with them.  – Flint Wiles

I thought I'd better write and thank you for helping make the Big Ride so special, because when I tried to tell you in person I started crying and couldn't get the words out. ... it was extremely difficult, extraordinarily fun, interesting, fulfilling…. The trip wouldn’t have gone nearly so well under anyone else’s leadership.  So thank you very much.  -2012 Big Rider

Charlton and Lynn are so very friendly and accommodating.  Their knowledge of cycling is unparalleled, and during the 2013 version of the Florida Bike SAFARI they met my every need.  I will definitely be a repeat customer.  – Len

The best thing about the trip was the incredible amount of personal attention that you lavished upon us.  If any of us even whispered that we had a concern, you were right on it. I have never been on a ride with this level of personal attention.   I would enthusiastically recommend VeloSante to others. -John, Grand Rapids, MI

We all talked about how well cared for we felt, and how you both removed all concerns... a great trip run by great people. Thank you so much! -Kathleen K.

You guys were truly amazing to be with these past 7 weeks.  I owe my safety, my well-being, and the time of my life to you guys.  – Cara

It was a great trip and a nice way to experience the south!  Beautiful scenery, wonderful company, great weather, delicious food, easy riding and good road surfaces with little traffic. Plus, it was a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with fellow Big Riders and reminisce about the Big Ride experience.  (And I loved Charlton's jokes!) -Daria Kurkjy

The personal attention was beyond belief.  I felt very well cared for, but not rushed, while on the road. Thanks!!!  -Margaret Peters

You went out of your way to accommodate us, from the unplanned stop at Elvis’s birthplace to satisfy Erin, to the stop at Brian’s school so we could see the murals, to the extra servings of Nutella (yuck! I say) to please Darya and the others. We never felt rushed or harried, because you were well organized and timed things right.  The road was ideal for riding and the distances about right. The group size was perfect – small enough to get to know everyone and large enough not to get sick of anyone.  I feel very lucky to have become your customer, and your friend.   Fondly, Glenn  

     Charlton and Lynn,  I met up today with three of the 2012 Big Riders, Molly, Cookie, and Rick who are doing the Pacific Coast charity ride.  Coincidently, I met up yesterday with a friend’s daughter who had just completed a cross country bicycle ride and shared her experience.  What came to my mind was that, upon reflection, you and Charlton did an absolute amazing job on leading the Big Ride.  You started by scouting out the ride before we left on our journey, you built a team of riders through some tough love at the beginning, you scouted the ride again each day, and you were there for any issues which came about during the actual bike riding.  Molly, Cookie and Rick all noticed the differences in their current ride and commented, "It’s not the Big Ride" not referring to the trip, but to the level of support you all provided. 

    It was easy to just ride each day without any thought about logistics, and I think that we just didn't know had good we had it because we had nothing with which to compare your level of effort.  Certainly we all appreciated at the time how easy each day was to get from point a to point b, but without any comparison, we didn't really know how truly superior your effort was.  Just thought you should know that we all really appreciate how you went above and beyond just running a bike tour, and I promise to stop complaining the next time I ride with you. -Rob,   8/2016 (Big Ride 2012 and Big Ride 2014)
