All of Our Retro Rides…In One Weekend!

If you want to potter around the lake, eating cake on your 1950 Raleigh, we have the ride for you. If you’re a hardened long distance retro monster, we have the ride for you. If you love spending time drinking, dancing, eating and riding with great people in a fantastic, authentic setting, this is definitely for you!

One Big Weekend, Three Very Different Rides

Velo Retro is part of the Retro Rendezvous Festival www.retrorendezvous.co.uk a full weekend of brilliant retro fun. Whether you’re into music, food, film, drink, vintage cars and motorcycles or simply pottering around the lovely market town of Ulverston, this event needs to make its way into your diary for 2017! Based around a semi-covered street party in the centre of town and featuring the fabulous Coronation Hall, Velo Retro has all the feel of an outdoor festival with the bonus of lots of covered space! It’s a great event for the whole family, so come and make a weekend of it.

Stay, Eat, Drink, be Merry!

Ulverston has masses of great accommodation right in the town centre to suit all tastes and budgets. We also have a dedicated campsite, a short walk away with real toilets and showers, on a lovely, flat, dry site (details to follow.)  Accommodation

What to Wear…What to Ride

We encourage people to be as retro as possible, but be assured, there will be no retro police on duty!

Bikes: Should be, or look like they are pre-1987. Ask around, you can usually borrow one or you can use one of our great vintage bike hire partners.

Clothes: Pick your own era, spend the winter trawling the charity shops, dress up, take part, it’s great fun! We’ll also have loads of retro clothes stores in the market.
