Anjou Vélo Vintage 2011
Last week-end we were invited to take part in the Anjou Vélo Vintage (A great event people already call “The french Eroica”) :
Once again : Thanks a lot to Elsa and to all the Anjou Vélo Vintage team for the invitation!
This was just amazing and the result was just crazy for a first shot!
500 participants were inscribed & ready for the D-Day.
Incredible organisation : Staff everywhere on the road (at crossings, at checkpoints, as backup on roads with motorcycles from start to finish, etc.), really nice and useful roadbook, great checkpoints, crazy landscapes (grape yards, castles), food specialities and great wines, vintage cars …etc.
95% of the participants were playing the game, dressed vintage!
The meeting was in Saumur where a huge bicycle fleamarket took place in the middle of several things (shows etc.).
The amazing surprise during the ride was the checkpoint at “La cave” (Domaine de La Perrière)
Here are some pictures we shot + a short video souvenir:
