New date sept 6th
due to coronavirus
It hasn't been easy but we've decided to re-arrange The Gert Lush on Sunday 6 September
due to the dangers of coronavirus.
We're postponing rather than cancelling as we've been blown away by the enthusiasm and commitment of everyone that's registered and want to deliver a special day in return. All entries will still be valid for September and maybe the extra four months will give you time to achieve peak fitness and maybe finish renovating that special bike.
We'll be starting and ending the rides at the same location in Long Ashton, Bristol and pulling out all the stops for a true celebration of vintage cycling.
For refunds or any queries please email us at email@example.com
Many thanks for your understanding and see you in September!
The Gert Lush Team
The Gert Lush is a vintage cycle event that lets you step back in time in the company of like-minded souls. We celebrate the collective joy of riding bikes through the magnificent Somerset countryside with two sportive rides and a free kids’ ride.
Our aim is to bring the past to life and, for 2020 we’re providing themed entertainment and surprises to mark the 75th anniversary of
Victory in Europe Day 1945.
Come as you will, wearing whichever outfits you prefer from any era, riding any bikes but full carbon, though feel free to embrace
in costume and attitude the collective joy that marked the outbreak
of peace on VE Day – May 1945.
After the rides kick back and mingle at our Street Party finale.
Early bird offer: The first five riders who can email firstname.lastname@example.org with photographic evidence of a pre-1945 bike that they'll ride, with costume will receive free entry to The Gert Lush 2020!
what's in a theme?
For this year we’ve introduced a theme, VE Day 1945.
We’ve chosen this because it’s the 75th anniversary of The Liberation Of Europe
1945 in May 2020 and this gives us the chance to celebrate peace and the rapprochement that was felt at the end of the Second World War. We’re not encouraging militarism, rather acknowledging the sacrifice of many during that period and the joy of an end to conflict.
The VE Day theme allows us to focus entertainment, refreshments, and our street party finale on that moment in time and have a bit of nostalgic fun on the day. We’d love people to embrace the theme but are very happy for anyone to turn up in whatever era bike and kit they prefer. The only proviso - no full carbon bikes!
Please feel free to contact us with suggestions for themes for the future years.
Embrace vintage fun on journeys through time and space.
