A classique way to spend a rainy bank holiday Monday
HERO: Artist Paul Williams with a pen and ink of the legendary Belgian cyclist Eddie Mercx DESPITE dismal weather conditions, a cycling festival was well supported.
The Chenies Velo Classique was held on Monday, August 31 with three different cycling distances and different events and stalls for families to enjoy. Around 450 people took part in the event, which was held in Chenies Manor.
Organiser, Nick O’Brien, said: “It was a very wet day so the numbers were down, but the location was brilliant and everyone was very complimentary. The stalls still managed to do a great trade, I think considering the weather we punched above our weight. Everybody is very keen for next year, we just hope for better weather.”
