The #Devon version of @tweedrun is @velo_vintagePosted: 24/05/2014
A lot of cyclists have heard about The Tweed Run. It is basically about riding (ideally) a vintage bicycle with stylish clothes such as tweed suits, flat caps, plus fours or alpaca coats…etc
Devonshire has its own gathering it is called Velo Vintage.
It is not the first time that Velo Vintage is taking place; it will in fact be the 5th event. Check that little video below about December 2013 fun day.
It seems that people like that trip in the past for a day or two – are we missing something despite of all the technology? Vintage stores are also blossoming and there is a real passion to search for that rare and unique accessory which will bring something special to the garment or the bike too.
Vintage is not just a movement – it is a lifestyle as well. People have a real interest in recycling clothes and spare parts (bikes, bicycles, classic cars) to give them that kind of rebirth.
Spending a day on the bicycle and traveling back in time, away from the daily stress and forgetting for a few hours smartphones, social media and everything digital is actually very good to empty your mind and it gives the opportunity to meet other people with the same passion: a breath of fresh air.
…supporting people with acquired brain injuries in Devon and Torbay…
It is not too late you join in on Sunday 15th June 2014 – see dedicated page HERE – just a few Guineas for a great day in the English countryside and a packed programme from 9.30am to 10pm.
