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.
