Velo Retro cycling event

Date: Sunday 5 September 2021 - 10:45am

Subject: Velo Retro September 5th 2021

Hello there,

After a two year break, we’re back, with the vintage cycling festival.

We’ve made some changes this year, partially to increase dispersal for safety reasons and partly, due to our enforced date change putting us on the same day as the Tour de Furness.

Unusually, the route will travel out to Coniston on the east side to avoid early morning tourist traffic on the A road. They will stop for tea (it’s very civilised!) at Monk Coniston House. The short route will then travel back through the village, with the long route progressing further east.

Approximate timings will be:

First wave: 1045-1130
Second wave: 1200-1400

Total riders, roughly 270 but these will be very well dispersed.

Please note, the Tour de Furness event is also running on the same day and sharing some route elements. We have coordinated with them and made changes to avoid any significant disruption.
