After a vintage bike?

Perhaps this year's Vintage Velo is just the incentive you need to get yourself a proper, workmanlike steed. Solid, reliable, devoid of gimmickry, or garish logos such as one might find adorning a noisy sportscar or a young person's trousers. We would heartily condone such an investment, and as luck would have it we have been contacted about an event where just such a purchase could be made.

Jolerider are an established charity who, since 2006, have been refurbishing bicycles and sending them to Africa in order to provide free, utilitarian transport for teachers and pupils. They also hold regular bicycle sales, the profits of which are put back into their bike recycling programmes. These always feature a number of desirable vintage machines at pocket-pampering prices.

Their next sale is on Saturday 14 April 2012, a mere 20 miles from Bristol, so please do head over and have a look.
