OldVelos Vintage Classic Cycle returns again to the Waterford Greenway

16/06/2019

The 5th OldVelos Vintage Classic cycle and exhibition returns to Kilmacthomas on the Waterford Greenway on the 13th and 14th July 2019. This year we have, based on requests from our supporters, organised a less taxing cycle on the Saturday. We will still have the OldVelos Vintage Classic on the Sunday but this year for the first time we will have the ‘Twine and Tweed Run’. The ‘Twine and Tweed’ run on the Saturday will take riders on a leisurely ride to the historic Curraghmore House where they will enjoy picnic on the lawn. The start and finish of both events and the exhibition is at Coach House Coffee.

Saturday’s free exhibition and Concours d’Elegance prize giving showcases the efforts of the many enthusiastic Irish and international rebuilders and restorers. This is a keenly contested competition with the best bike on show awarded the coveted Longford Tractor Spares Trophy. There will also be prizes for best bicycles, restorations and best dressed cyclists from event sponsors Donard Cycles, Coach House Coffee, Café Velo, Flogas, Rebike and Peugeot T&C Motors.

Sunday’s OldVelos Vintage Classic cycle offers 2 routes. For the more adventurous, the Comeragh Loop with 50 & 75 mile options will test the mettle of both bike and rider as would-be racers traverse the terrain that preceded the careers of Sean Kelly and Sam Bennett.

For others the OldVelos Vintage Classic brings new memories to old machines.

"A great weekend. I have cycled lots of events like the Race around Ireland, the Wild Atlantic Way twice in 6 weeks, Paris-Brest-Paris, around Iceland and more, but this 25 miles on my Dad's old bike with all the other old bikes at the OldVelos Vintage Classic was the best 25 miles I have cycled"
