OldVelos Vintage Classic

August 26

|

The 5th OldVelos Vintage Classic cycle returns to the Waterford Greenway this August.

OldVelos will once again be celebrating our great cycling heritage on the Waterford Greenway, on the weekend of August 25th & 26th 2018.   Based at Coach House Coffee in Kilmacthomas (Waterford, Ireland), there will be an exhibition of classic racing and road bikes over the weekend and on the Sunday we will have the OldVelos Vintage Classic cycle.

The free exhibition and Concours d’Elegance competition, sponsored by SRAM, Legacy Irish Cider and Metal Man Beer, will showcase the efforts of enthusiastic Irish and international rebuilders and restorers of classic bicycles. There will be awards for different categories with the overall winner taking home the prestigious and coveted Longford Tractor Spares Trophy.

Sunday’s OldVelos Vintage Classic cycle offers two routes.

  • The 25mile Curraghmore Loop allows riders of classic bikes, roadsters and High Nellies to enjoy the magnificent facility that is the Waterford Greenway. The route includes a pit stop for coffee and buns at the historic Curraghmore Estate in Portlaw.
  • The Comeragh Loop offers 50 & 75 mile options. This route suitable for the more adventurous cyclists, will test the mettle (and metal!) of both rider and bike. Would-be racers will have the opportunity to ride on the very roads where Seán Kelly and Sam Bennett started their careers.
