OldVelos Vintage Classic, 10th Sept 2017
Our colleague Alex Darragh reports that the Waterford Greenway has been announced as the venue for the 3rd OldVelos Vintage Classic cycling event. The OldVelos Vintage Classic is open to riders on vintage steel racing bicycles from the 1900-1980’s.
This year’s event, on Sunday 10th September, will be based at the Coach House Café and Greenway Bike Hire on the workhouse in Kilmacthomas. Leisure riders can choose between 10 & 20 miles Greenway routes and for the sports riders there are more challenging Comeragh routes of 60-80 miles.
All bikes must be pre 1990 in age and cyclists are encouraged to wear their vintage racing woollens or high nelly tweeds.
For the public there will be a free vintage velo expo, including racing bikes from the 1920’s-1980’s as well as a special Irish interest section. For the riders there will be a Concours d’Elegance competition for best original and restored bicycles. We might even give a prize for the best dressed rider!!
