Vintage Velo 2014

Vintage Velo 2015 will take place on Sunday 26th July. Buy your tickets here now!


The Vintage Velo has quickly become one of our most popular events – a summery jaunt along a scenic route to a mystery destination, with some games, entertainment, prizes and food thrown in.

Starting as a more Southwesterly take on London’s legendary Tweed Run, it’s quickly become one of our most popular events, with over 100 participants enjoying the fun. It’s one of our few ticketed events, and all proceeds are recycled back into the festival.

Don your best outfit, pack a picnic (or order one from the venue) and join us for an easy-going ride (about 6 miles on mostly flat roads and cycle paths) into a more genteel era of cycling.

Previous editions have featured stately homes, village halls, rolling country roads and leafy Edwardian suburbs. This year we’ll be visiting a truly iconic location, and the ride has a sporting theme, so launder your cricket whites, polish your croquet mallet, and get ready to play!

You can get a flavour of previous editions by visiting the Vintage Velo Blog and watching this rather spiffing video.
