The essential characteristic of the VELOICA is the joy of being dressed in retro-style biking garments riding a vintage bicycle. This of course gives rise to some challenges which lend this event a certain charm. These bicycles still manage to look very elegant today. They are, however, quite heavy and prone to mishaps. They have fewer gears which are hard to handle. Brute force was needed to apply the brakes and careful manouvering is necessary in order to keep the bike on course.
Hence, riding these bicycles demands more skills, concentration and coordination.
To ride these beautiful bicycles in a wonderful environment on technically demanding routes is a special challenge. Experienced cyclists know that just after a few kilometers the rider and his bike „merge as one“ to master the upcoming challenges. Cycling pleasure can be felt intensely and arriving at the finish line gives forth to a deep-felt feeling of satisfaction.
