Hooray for retro biking

Anjou Velo Vintage 1

Fashionistas have a new motto : trendy pedaling.

The scoop ? A chic and vintage bike race near Saumur in June ! This unusual venue is a time machine going back to 20s, 30s, and 40s for lovers of legendary cycles  and old bikes with pedals. So get ready for a week-end of good humor, cool sport cool and lots of laughs !

The must ? Dandies and pretty girls are invited to participate in a 100 % retro contest that will reward those who will have perfectly matched outfit with their two-wheel steed.

Take out your prettiest dresses, pumps, gloves, a voilette and… Your bicycle ! On Saturday 22 June the élégance contest of Anjou Velo Vintage in Saumur will be taking place.

How does it work ? Tout le monde peut concourir, il suffit de s’inscrire à l’une des quatre catégories selon son style : branché, authentique, sportif ou glamour, cette dernière étant exclusivement réservée à la gente féminine, moustaches s’abstenir!

Attention, you have until 12 juin June to sign up. The very serious jury, comprising fashion and cycling professionals, will preselect six participants by theme before the final contest that will take place on place du Chardonnet.

And also : tours on pre-1987 bikes for vintage adventure !
