Vintage bike ride sunday 27 August 2017 starting from Ciney.

Spend the day travelling through the countryside of Condroz and the Famenne on the “La Savoureuse” vintage bike ride.
“La Savoureuse” will bring together all those who are passionate about old bikes, fans of vintage fashion, those who love bike rides and gourmets.
As its name indicates, la Savoureuse transforms refreshment halts into gastronomic stops where you can taste locally-made produce.

 

Offering 3 itineraries (30/60/90km) starting from Ciney, this day of cycling is suitable for families, confirmed cyclists and those who enjoy a lovely ride as well as the most sporty “convicts of the road”. The different itineraries will give participants the opportunity to taste a few samples of local produce and to admire the cultural heritage and natural history of the villages on the route. At the same time they will be cocooned in a chic and period atmosphere.

  • gear shifters located on the main frame
  • pedals with toe cages and no clip-ins.

La Savoureuse is also suitable for Brompton bikes, fixies and single speeds with a steel frame (carbon frames are not permitted) and more up-to-date bikes with a retro look.
