Starting and ending at the Cité Clairvivre, the loops will be punctuated by breaks to rest, to quench your thirst, to taste terroir products and to enjoy yourselves thinking about the kilometers you’ve made.
Discovering landscapes without hurry, chatting while pedaling, stopping beside the track to take a photograph or just to have a break, remembering our memories, helping and cheering each other on the road… so many things and values that we can share on a bike. The oldest the bike is, the funniest the experience will be!
The rest is what awaits you on Sunday, July, 22nd at the Cité Clairvivre !
In order to live the “Velo Paradisio” experience completely, reuse your VINTAGE CLOTHES : trousers and flower dresses, Sunday suits and leather jackets, hats and fascinators, caps and berets, whatever your tastes and what you will find in your wardrobes!
For the BIKE, we recommend you to have a bike before 1987, when the gearbox passed from the frame to the handlebar. If you do not have some, look into your garages, cellars and barns. Ask people around you, a treasure might be at hands!Our mechanics crew will check the state of the bikes and handle the first breakdowns.
Of course, if you prefer to use your modern bike, feel free to take it, we are sure you’ll customize so well to turn it into a vintage bike! Don’t forget to be vintage-dressed!
All day long, you will find several options, for every taste and purse.
