Vintage Spring Ride, Sunday 14 September


September 14 marks the start of Bike Week and, yes, there is going to be another Vintage Ride in Newcastle this year!Speedwell and rose garden

With the Spring theme, we will all be wearing our warmer weather (we hope!) gear as we ride from Nobbys to Islington Park along the Foreshore and Throsby Creek, then return to Linwood Shores Estate for a FREE breakfast kindly provided by Newcastle City Council to celebrate. Flowers and vintage bikes will be the order of the day.

En route we will be entertained by a Master of Ceremonies, regaling us with an entertaining history of Newcastle, as we ride past some of the city’s most scenic spots.

Prize categories will be for Best Women’s Bike, Best Men’s Bike, Best Women’s Outfit and Best Men’s Outfit.

Meet at Nobbys, in the park behind the beach, at 8.30am for a 9am start.

FREE EVENT, sponsored by Newcastle City Council.

    Sadly we will be climbing down off Montblanc and then peddling in France and Italy. Hopefully there any be other events later this year and during summer.

    Can you advise what qualifies as a “Vintage Bicycle” ?

    • Vicki says:

      Anything pre 90s, but we are not going with a strict definition… We recognise vintage replicas too, and in fact any classic styling is perfectly acceptable.

    So sorry that I won’t be able to make it as I am at a midday wedding that day. But I will be wishing you lots of floral fabulousness. Long live flower power!

    OK if one of our bikes is not vintage? We only have one bike each! Our wear will be vintage style thought 🙂
