On Sunday 22nd June, over a hundred cyclists toured around Birmingham’s city centre for the 4th annual Big Vintage Ride.

Dressed in 1920’s vintage attire and many riding vintage bicycles, they celebrated the long-standing appeal of the bicycle as a fun, healthy and enjoyable mode of transport.

The day began with an informal picnic, lounging on the grass in St Paul’s Square in the Jewellery Quarter.

Afterwards they took a leisurely ride around the city centre, ending up in The Spotted Dog pub in Digbeth for an evening of live music and DJs.

Phil Ward, a local musician who participated in the ride, said, “It was a really lovely day, I always enjoy cycling but it’s fun to cycle with such a great bunch of people – a really great vibe and some lovely outfits.

It’s all beautifully silly of course; it’s great to see the expressions of the confused onlookers!

Cycling is becoming more and more popular in Birmingham and on days like this, it’s easy to see why.”
