This year’s event takes place on Sunday (June 15).

Cyclists are travelling from across the UK from as far as Edinburgh to the beautiful Manor Gardens to cycle in colourful style and take tea in the company of a mixture of bicycles, many from a bygone era, from tandems to penny farthings, from tricycles to racing bikes, but as long as its pedal powered, it can join the Velo Vintage cycle ride! With a choice of two routes, there is a cycle to suit all levels of fitness, so lack of practice in the saddle should not deter anyone from joining in the spectacle of this annual summer event, and this year, coinciding with Father’s Day offers the chance to make it a family day to remember!

The Exmouth Shanty Men, Just Misbehavin’ and the Night Owls will be performing live so there will be plenty of time to dance the night away for those who have energy to spare! For gentlemen and ladies who prefer to dress in style, there is the opportunity and encouragement to dress up for the occasion, and there will be prizes for the best moustache, best dressed vintage gent/lady and decorated bicycle. There will be a special raffle for Headway Devon with some very exciting prizes and all can join in, if you can’t make the cycle, just pop down to Manor Gardens from about 4.30pm onwards for some great live music.

Tickets can be purchased online and included in the ticket price is a light lunch, cream tea and entertainment, so if you like your bike rides to be sociable and fuelled by tea and cake, go to www.velovintage.co.uk
