Vintage Theme

This being a revival festival, we are strongly encouraging riders to ‘get involved’ with the 1940’s feel of the event and help us transport people back in time to the era of the 1948 Olympic Games – the last major international event to be held at Herne Hill. Clearly, we would also love people to race on vintage style classic bicycles.

To keep in with the theme, we would suggest wearing an older style jersey with black shorts with minimal white only logos, short white socks and ideally black overshoes.
