Oh, and L'Intrepida too: 18-20 October.

Sadly, no news from the Retronde yet. Maybe this will help:

Added another ride: La Superba in Portofino. Friends of ours have been there and liked it a lot. It's the weekend before L'Eroica, so those coming over might consider a stop-over in Portofino, a beautiful town on the Italian Riviera.

Bristol is my former home, shame I won't be able to go! There's some small peripheral irony there. The day I read about this is 10 years to the day of my first flight to Béziers to meet my internet date. Still together!
If anyone isn't sure about the names of the rides at Gert Lush, you have to say them in a Bristol accent...

Ah, I'm from Yorkshire originally and still have the accent even after nearly 20 years in Weston so it doesn't sound right coming from me
My wife's from Posset though and does have a bit of a Brizzle

I'll be doing the ride with my daughter - probably the Roight Lush as she's got exams this year - so I'll put up a post with photos.

I think I've got 'em all added to the Vintage Cycling Events Calendar. Let's see, I added Gert Lush, In Velo Veritas, La Francescana, La Superba, Retroronde, and La Polverosa. I already had L'Intrepida, but adjusted the dates. Let me know if I missed something.

Hokey smokes, Bullwinkle! I think you could go to Europe in late May and ride two or three vintage tours most weekends through September! Hmmm...

These are just the largest events. There are many more smaller local ones. Here's a list of more events in Belgium and Holland. I'm sure France and Italy have similar lists.

Added a "?" to the date for La Savoureuse, as it seems to have vanished from their website and FB page. Anybody know what's going on there?

Thanks. I can't even reach their website and the lasavoureuse.be domain seems to have disappeared as well. I've left the event in the vintage cycling events calendar for the time being but added a note about the lack of event details. The Wayback Machine took a snapshot on Dec 27:

I really hope it's just a glitch. La Savoureuse is a very sympathetic event, and one I've been looking forward to every season since @Munny made me aware of its existence. Perhaps he knows more?

The web site respond now and the following contact information are mentioned info@valleesdessaveurs.be as email and the phone number of the local tourism office
They still display a video of the first edition https://vimeo.com/73648985 - You can see Carl there and I was only there with 4 speeds (48X23 and the 23 teeths cogs that the super champion derailleur mostly didn't reach ...)

My experience is telling me that it is too early in the year to get information on the potential coming edition.

There are other small events in Belgium. I even heard about a vintage cyclocross event but didn't manage to get contact

Thanks, @Munny! Your are correct, it is still early season, and the website being back up is a good sign, I suppose. Let's hope they re-announce the same date. I'd already booked a hotel when they first announced it in November ...

Nice to see the film of the 2013 event. They don't seem to have changed very much over the years, which is a good thing. Did you win anything in the lottery?

Retroronde registration is open. Mrs non-fixie and I have just signed up for the 80k ride. Looking forward to that weekend!

Just received word that there'll be no more Tour d'Historique. For now, anyway. The organizers have thrown in the towel after five editions. Not for lack of success, but rather the opposite. It started out as a small group ride, but got bigger each year. Let's hope someone else will take over, as it will be missed by all who participated in past events. A big thank you to Nees and Michael for five great Sundays.

Mrs non-fixie is already on the case. Her mission: to secure tickets for both Saturday's and Sunday's rides.

Well, the Anjou website suffered the same Senior Citizens DDOS attack this morning as the Eroica.cc site last month, but mrs non-fixie has apparently secured tickets to the Marcel Enselle and Anatole Laguibole rides.

Due to an assortment of other 'things', Bob and I are on the 120km on the Saturday and leaving sometime on Sunday. Appointments that can't be changed.
Edit: That's the only one left, everything else is now sold out.

Apparently they have sold 10,000 tickets for the weekend in just a few hours. Impressive.

Anyway, I'm glad you guys got in. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Added La Vieille Boucle Lustinoise in Belgium. I'm not familiar with this ride, but their website is rather nice, and it's short notice: May 5th, in the Namur region.
