Anjou Velo Vintage...

Loire à Vélo

The annual Anjou Vélo Vintage, set over the weekend of Saturday 28th and Sunday the 29th of June, is an excuse to revel in the glorious past of the humble bicycle. There is a big, jolly bike ride with four different  routes, to suit different levels and ages, from the colourful Lycra wearing ‘we take it seriously’ kind of folk to the ‘lets dress up and have fun’ types. Don’t be surprised to see fancy dress, blokes in boaters, ladies in lace and twos on tandems – such fun!

Whether you are a cyclist or not, you will enjoy the ‘retro’ atmosphere in Saumur the ’home’ of the festival. The nostalgia for the vintage ‘bicyclette’ will be enhanced  by the addition of costumes and music from a bygone age of fun and sophistication(?).
