Anything from the turn of the 20th century to the 1970s racing bikes / clothing and even tweed will do! Don’t have a vintage bike? Decorate your bike instead. Flowers, bunting, flags, and baskets will all add a vintage flavour to your modern steed. No matter what bike you ride, please ensure your bike is in good working order.
There will be entertaining & active things to do for participants and/or those who are interested & supportive before departing from Devonport Park. After 9 leisurely miles, the Retro Ride will end at Saltram House. The National Trust are offering free entry to the house grounds & vintage tea room. Picnic baskets are also encouraged.
