April 26/12 15:11 pm - 4th Annual Americane Vintage Track & Road Bike Festival at the Bloomer Park Velodrome


Posted by Editoress on 04/26/12
 

The International Velodrome at Bloomer Park, Rochester, Michigan, is proud to announce the 4th year of this unique event. This is one of the only vintage track and road show and swaps in the USA that meets inside an active track where attendees can also get out and ride ...(on their own vintage bikes or a loaner provided by the track).

The Americane' Vintage Track & Road Bike Festival is a show and swap meet, bringing together vintage track and road cycling enthusiasts from around the country. Vintage bikes in multiple categories are invited, covering a full century of cycling. The swap meet will feature amazing collections of vintage equipment, giving browsers and enthusiasts a chance to connect over cycling gear of every kind. Look for that one-of-a-kind part at The Americane'!

This event coincides with the State Individual Time Trial Championships this year on Saturday, June 30th.
