Czech Velocipedist Club 1880 – field session 2024

The oldest cycling club in Bohemia – the 1880 Czech Velocipedist Club always meets at the beginning of the year for its annual meeting. This time it was combined with a trip to Moravia and over ten stops, which made the trip an incredible research experience.

The first stop was semi-unofficial. The visit to the private collection of a friend PB and his friendly reception was very pleasant.

First stop

The Prague Mile and the exhibition PRAGUE BIKES AND MANUFACTURERS

As members of the oldest cycling club in the Czech Republic, ČKV 1880, we organize and participate in a farewell session on Prague's Letenská plain under the name - Prague MILE. It was no different at the beginning of November 2023.

The Prague Mile 2023

The PRAGUE BIKES exhibition was a free continuation of the Pečič vs Štantejský sports bike exhibition. All this is a harbinger of the upcoming big exhibition in Prague, for which we are looking for bikes from Prague manufacturers, photos and documents to rent.

Fahrrad FEST Bad Brückenau 1.Juli 2023 - Germany

The efforts and the good name of the entire family of the owner of the museum, Ivan Sojc, have made the meeting of collectors perhaps the most interesting specialized exchange in Europe within a few years. Today, Fahrrad FEST in Bad Bruckenau, on the premises of a great bicycle museum, is regularly visited by collectors from all over Germany, Austria, Holland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Italy, France, Switzerland and other countries. Take a close look at some photos from the event and make your own judgment based on the quality of the bikes on offer. The number of visitors cannot be compared with the gigantic vintage events for cars or motorcycles, but there are definitely more real bike collectors and buyers here than anywhere else.
Always the first weekend in July, so mark the date July 1, 2024 in your calendar now so you don't miss your chance to be there next year.

Address: Heinrich-von-Bibra-Str. 24, 97769 Bad Brückenau, Germany
