Info COVID 19: Due to the Covid 19, the 2020 edition of Anjou Vélo Vintage is unfortunately cancelled. Cycling and retro enthusiasts will gather on the banks of the Loire River in 2021.
Every year, at the end of June or the beginning of July, Saumur comes alive for 3 days to the sound of post-war jazz and guinguettes on the occasion of ANJOU VÉLO VINTAGE.
Over the weekend, thousands of people gather in Saumur for the tasteful bike rides of yesteryear. The rule is simple, participants in these bike rides must come dressed in retro costumes and, if possible, on a vintage bike. The decade remains your choice. Each of the six rides proposed (from 30 km to 130 km) then turns into a colorful parade, full of good humor. In addition to the 10,000 cyclists who meet in Saumur, more than 40,000 spectators gather on the roadside to enjoy the spectacle.
