Jewellery Quarter vintage cyclists to take to the road

Big Vintage Ride this weekend.


On Sunday 19th July, over a hundred cyclists will gather for Birmingham’s 4th annual Big Vintage Ride. Dressed in vintage attire and riding vintage bicycles, they will celebrate the long-standing appeal of the bicycle as a sustainable and enjoyable means of transport.

The day will begin at 2pm with an informal picnic in St Paul’s Square in the Jewellery Quarter. They set off on a leisurely ride around the city centre at 4pm, before partying the evening away at the Rose Villa Tavern from 5pm.

The ride coincides with the Jewellery Quarter Festival, which includes a helter-skelter and free outdoor performances including musicians, bands, theatre and dance troupes.

The event is free and open to all. Vintage bicycles are optional. Details can be found at
