This event has now been cancelled.

Get ready to pedal back in time at the Vintage Cycling Festival – Scotland’s only retro ride & celebration of classic bikes.

Come join the Vintage Cycling Festival for a day filled with all things retro cycling! Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or just love the vintage vibes, this event is for you. Get ready for a day filled with all things retro cycling! Tighten your toe straps for a scenic 45 miles morning retro ride through East Lothian, admire a display of classic bikes & enjoy some good company, food and entertainment.

Don’t miss out on this inaugural event, get involved & support them, as they build towards hosting an annual, full-on cycling festival experience from May ’25. So mark your calendars and pedal on over to the Vintage Cycling Festival, Scotland’s only retro cycling event.


Meeting at the Drill Hall, to start our retro ride, we’ll utilise a selection of cycle paths, tracks & quiet country roads to explore our East Lothian route. Pausing along the way to admire the view from Fa’side Castle, Tranent, we’ll then head to Gifford for a much deserved rest at the very welcoming Lanterne Rouge Cafe. Before returning to our start venue, for filled rolls, hot beverages & an afternoons entertainment.

Despite a long & rich cycling heritage, the Scottish retro scene, is yet to be realised. As such, we’re aware that vintage bikes, clothing & organised events haven’t been easy to find up here. So whilst encouraging participants to embrace the retro theme, you’re welcome to bring whatever you have.
