Welcome to Velo Vintage, a place where we step back a little in time, go for a little cycle ride, take tea, converse and dress with style.
Following on from our last Velo Vintage, we enjoyed the morning after the day before, what we like to call
Apres Velo Vintage,
when 25 of headed off to Seaton Tramway.
Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah! Thank you all so much for an outstanding Velo Vintage! All of us at Velo Vintage H.Q. would like to thank everyone who made such a terrific day possible. Our sponsors, our supporters, all of our venues, our hosts Seaton Town Council, the amazing Inimitable Volunteer Stewards and above all the beautifully adorned Velo Vintage Riders. Thank you all, it was such a happy day in a most traditional way. Toodle Pip! Alistair, Seb and the Stewards.
Congratulations to the amazing winners of our rather eclectic mix of competitions!
Our next Occasion & Ride is in Seaton, Devon on the Jurassic Coast on Saturday 1st July 2017.
Please see the ticket page for full details.
We're still discussing matters in a dark room filled with pipe smoke and
the aroma of port, however we feel confident enough to say, "get out
your sharpened pencils and mark Saturday 1st July 2017 as a truly
exciting Summer Velo Vintage Occasion & Ride!" As soon as we have
confirmed matters, we'll let you know when to mark your books with quill
& ink. Huzzah!
We had some truly outstanding winners of our competitions!
We have some exciting plans for 2017, so do keep popping in for news or register onto our mailing list.
We had a truly top time on Friday 9th September in Sidmouth for the start of Stage 6 of The Tour of Britain. We seemed to have a little flurry on the radio and television, so here we have a collection of clips from the day. Our thanks go to Julia Boyer and Ian Woolger, two of our Stewards who stepped up to the BBC microphone for the first time for Velo Vintage. Many thanks also go to our inimitable Stewards and our Guest Riders. Thank you all so much. Toodle Pip! Alistair & Sebastian
The Tour of Britain is visiting Devon on Friday 9th September! Stage 6 will start in
the Regency resort of Sidmouth and the Inimitable Velo Vintage Stewards will
form part of the lead-out. Come along shout "Huzzah", support The

P.S. The Velo Vintage Stewards are gathering on Sunday 4th September in Sidmouth
to help promote the Tour of Britain. We'll be handing out flyers, however if
you want to dust off your steed, dress up and join us you'll be very welcome.
We shall be gathering at The Anchor Inn, Old Fore Street at just before 11:00
am. We intend to ride around the town, along the seafront and seek refreshments
as required. It's all very informal.
Huzzah! Photographs from one of our occasions have been used to adorn a bus stop in Exmouth!
