OldVelos Vintage Classic

12/08/2016

Nominated for Cycling Ireland's Best Leisure Ride in 2015, the OldVelos Vintage Classic is taking place again in Killarney on Saturday, September 17, 2016. The event celebrates the days when bicycles were works of art and when thousands turned out to welcome home the likes of Stephen Roche and Sean Kelly, Ireland’s cycling superstars.

Leaving from Randles Bros Nissan Dealership in Killarney at 10am, riders can choose either a 60 or 75 mile loop, spinning through spectacular and challenging countryside including the Black Valley, Bealach Béime, Glencar and Carragh Lake returning to Killarney on the Board of Works road. Both routes are open to riders on vintage racing bikes. Registration €25 on www.oldvelos.com.


OldVelos, the organisers, encourage participants and supporters to converge the afternoon before – September 16 - to enjoy the OldVelos VeloExpo at Randles Bros in Killarney – admission free - and to see the competition for the iBikes Concours D’Elegance prize for ‘best in show’. The Expo also contains memorabilia such as jerseys and photos and continues all day Saturday.

The Oldvelos Vintage Classic is sponsored by local bike retailer iBikes and hosted by Randles Bros Nissan Dealers and invokes the spirit and legends of the golden age of Irish and international cycling. See www.oldvelos.com for more information.
