Terms of Participation

In Velo Veritas is a guided bicycle tour without a fixed schedule on classic road bikes. Only bikes which were produced until the manufacturing year of 1987/88, without clip-in pedals or brake/clutch levers on the handlebar, are permitted. The paddle shifters need to be on the downtube of the bike. Frames made after 1987/88 are accepted if the structure of the bicycles correlate with the regulations and the particular design of that particular era. Compliance with these regulations is checked when the race numbers are distributed. Vintage outfits reflecting the period are appreciated! Every cyclist from the age of 18 is qualified to join, from the age of 12 with company and with parental consent when race numbers are distributed.
With the payment of the entry fee (respectively, the acceptance of the race number), the participant agrees to the following terms:
