Anjou Vélo Vintage festival, Saumur, June 22-24

Dig out your tweed flatcap or pencil skirt, trim that moustache and enter the spirit of yesteryear from the comfort/discomfort of an old bike. The annual Vélo Vintage festival based in Saumur is primarily a low-key, gentle cycling event through the marvellous Anjou landscape, and has routes ranging from 30 to 120kilometres to suit all levels of fitness and speed.
