As a tribute to the stylistic periods of cycling culture evocative retro cycling events arise for about a decade across Europe, as the L´Eroica Italia or Anjou Vélo Vintage in France. These include several rounds through wonderful nature and to historic places. In order to address different needs of bike lovers, there is always at least in the portfolio:
Firstly, there are an about 48 k "Gourmet Course" and an about 89 k "Enthusiasts Course", in which all cyclic enraptured people may show up in appropriate fashion to their wonderful old bicycles.
Secondly, there is the 149 k "Heroes Course", which claims the utmost from the participants on unsealed roads. It is driven on the old iron horses with down tube shifters, open brake cables, wool jersey and of course with strap pedals.
Each tour without time measurement, of course, to experience the joy and togetherness in a beautiful environment; classically with cards that are stamped officially to the respective stations.
The festival around it, which delighted both young and old, is another indication of this VintageWheelRounds. There are all sorts of imaginable trumpery for the bike to discover, to marvel and to buy. Fashion, culture, food, live music lead this bike festivals to a relaxed experience for bicycle enthusiasts, the whole family, friends and bike enthusiastic fans.

Your organizing team of VELO CLASSICO GERMANY
It’s my great pleasure to assume the patronage of Velo Classico Germany 2016. Italy looks back to a long cycling tradition in both production and sports.
Therefore this is the perfect occasion to celebrate this tradition together with our German friends. Cycling is a synonym for sustainability, contact to nature and landscape:
These values are close to the hearts of both Germans and Italians. I wish all participants an exciting race and a successful event.
