An antidote to the follies of modern cycling, the Vintage Velo is a relaxed jaunt along a scenic route to 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.
Previous editions have featured stately homes, village halls, rolling country roads and leafy Edwardian suburbs. There is no “dress code” per sé, and the definition of “vintage” is left to you, but making an effort is appreciated (and essential, if you wish to win the coveted Dapper Chap or Chapess award)
You can get a flavour of previous editions by visiting the Vintage Velo Blog and watching this rather spiffing video.
And if that doesn’t whet your appetite, here’s a short film of our inaugural event.
