The World Cycling Revival is a three-day event celebrating vintage cycling held at the iconic Herne Hill Velodrome in London over June 14-16 2018.
Organisers of the event say that it will be "the greatest celebration of the bicycle the world has ever seen" involving all aspects of cycling to celebrate 200 years of the bicycle.
There will be racing on the Herne Hill track - the venue built for the 1948 Olympic Games that has recently benefited from an extensive restoration and refurbishment.
Track champions Ed Clancy, François Pervis and Azizulhasni Awang will take part in a vintage Japanese keirin. And – for many a highlight of the festival - cycling legend Graeme Obree will celebrate his Hour record on a recreated model of his Old Faithful bike.

Plus, there is authentic vintage live music, food, drink and fashion stalls.
Everyone attending the festival is invited to join in with the historic theme by dressing in suitable attire.
