Meet Spoke

You know you’ve had an unforgettable vacation when you can’t stop talking about it, you gush and share stories with everyone. What made it extraordinary is simple: the nitty-gritty details were tackled behind the scenes long before you packed your bags, and then, upon arrival, thoughtfully served up by your local, personal Concierge. Beautifully curated cycling adventures were matched to your ambitions & mood. And of course, the finest in local food, wine, and culture were consistently and pleasantly delivered. The details, naturally, include knowing the lay of the land, or as they say, being au courant (in the know). The elusive & sought-after sommelier, where to find the juiciest tomatoes & punchiest garlic, that secret passage that rolls into a delightful ribbon of country roads traveled by only a few, and of course the stubborn baker that bakes only 10 loaves of gooey-heaven a day, simply because he can.

This is where the magic lives.

Let us show you.

Let Spoke Handle the Details

From half day cycling trips, followed by a wine tour, to assistance and recommendations on the smartest area to base yourself, with stylish villa to boot, we’ve got you covered. Spoke Concierge is a talented, full service travel concierge.

The Ride of your Life

That’s right. We can say it because we’ve said it a thousand times ourselves (yes, we’re cyclists too, constantly seeking an even better day out), and have heard our lovely guests belt it out on numerous occasions, with exclamations & emoticons.

Experts in Experience

Spoke Concierge caters to everyone in your group: cyclists, walkers, hikers, foodies, wine-snobs, culture mavens etc. Success is an ear-to-ear smile equally spread across the dining table come end of the day. To make this happen, we leverage our outstanding network of local travel partners.

David knows these roads, especially the ones dear to his heart & shared with few. Maybe he’ll take you, if you’re nice, and buy him a sticky dessert. He’ll certainly spin a tale or two about Le Tour, as they do in these parts.

Markets, markets, MARKETS! Camille not only knows them, but knows when best to visit, which farmers to flirt with, and naturally, how these culinary delights all come together in what we all know as local, artisanal cuisine.

You will beg Chef Philippe to stop. Then desperately pray for more. We suggest giving into it, it’s best that way. Plus, his mother will be most pleased, seeing you’ll be dining on family recipes passed down many times.

“With Spoke we didn’t have to cycle everyday. Sure, Mike wanted to cycle but I wanted a taste of the local area. Spoke arranged a cookery course with Gina and a wine tasting with Linda. It was fabulous. We are both still smiling.”
Sue and Mike, Toronto 2015

About Us

Spoke Concierge was started by three friends wanting to ride together (OK, we’ll admit it, Adam is faster than Michelle and Dana, but we’re faster at fixing flats). We are two Canadians and a Brit with loads of cycling trips under our belts. Yes, we love great rides, food & wine as much as you probably do. In our travels, we discovered something interesting: when friends, couples or families wanted to plan a trip that involved some cycling, packaged cycling tours just didn’t work. Quite simply, everyone has different needs. So we married this problem with our passion, and launched Spoke to make it easy, and extraordinary, for you. Voila!
