Waterford Greenway Hosts the OldVelos Vintage Classic, 10th Sept 2017


The Waterford Greenway has been announced as the venue for the 3rd OldVelos Vintage Classic. The OldVelos Vintage Classic, a unique cycling event in Ireland is open to riders on vintage steeds and racing bicycles from the 1900-1980’s including High Nellies, Roadsters and steel thoroughbreds.


This year’s event, on Sunday the 10th of September, will be based at the Coach House Café and Greenway Bike Hire on the workhouse in Kilmacthomas. Leisure riders can choose between 10 & 20miles Greenway routes and for the sports riders who want to get their legs to get over some steep climbs in high gears there are more challenging Comeragh routes of 60-80 miles. All bikes must be pre 1990 in age and cyclists are encouraged to wear their vintage racing woollens or high nelly tweeds.


For spectators there will be a free vintage velo expo including racing bikes from the 1920’s-1980’s as well as a special Irish interest section. For the riders there will be a Concours d’Elegance competition for best original and restored bicycles. We might even give a prize for the best dressed rider!!

Find out more on and register for your route at www.oldvelos.com as places are limited on all four routes.
