The 2015 Vintage Ride

The Vintage Ride picnic 2015

Cyclers attending the 4th Birmingham Vintage Ride on the 19th July were treated to just perfect weather, being warm enough for the picnic but not too warm for the ride, and with the sun in full attendance too. Of course not everyone has a vintage bike or clothes, but since the objective is a fun, civilised, social gathering, Sunday best was more than good enough as an alternative.

For the ride itself I strapped my Zeis Ikon 16mm cine camera to the handlebars of my vintage Dawes road bike. We cycled from St Paul's Square to the city centre and then back to the Jewellery Quarter. Some of the wide variety of machines being ridden can be seen in the film.
