The basics – only vintage steel road racing bicycles built in or before 1999, with down tube shifters, and pedals with toe clips and straps, are allowed to be ridden in the Eroica South Africa event.
Traditionally Eroica events only allow pre-1987 bicycles, but they have made a special concession because of the scarcity of older bicycles in South Africa. As for clothing and gear, please consider the approximate age of your bicycle, and dress accordingly in vintage kit – wool jerseys, period correct shoes, aluminium water bottles etc. if appropriate.
