Very nice bicycles and outfits. Someone has the same green Pashley as I do.

How is that leather briefcase attached to your rear rack? If you know what I mean.

I mounted some pannier clips to the briefcase... the bungee keeps it snug.

There was a woman with a helmet like that at the "All British Cycling Event" in September. She looked quite elegant in it, riding her 1914 Raleigh "X-frame" bike:

I had nothing to repair today... everyone's bikes were in fine running shape and all seem to have been polished up for the ride.

The old boy got a wipe down, I topped up the oil, and replaced some fender rods and nuts before I set out today.

We only had a few fixed gear bikes on the ride today... we stayed to the flats pretty much save for one little 1000 foot climb out of the valley.

A few people walked their bikes up that one.

Sure looks as if you've got the machine we'd expect our favorite superhero to ride, as you save bicycles from the threat of international communism.

Bicycle Repairman could only ride a Raleigh... unless he was in his civilian disguise.

I came pretty close to taking the '57 Peugeot on today's ride as it was some kind of windy and the 8 speeds were looking attractive... but she is better suited to the deli and market rides we do.

It was a blast as I usually go on tweed rides all by myself and it was nice to have company...

The ride was neither long nor fast and many a flask was passed back and forth to stave off the chill of the day... we snacked on gingersnaps and brandy when we were in the valley and after a good little climb we made our way to a local pub to put back a few pints and enjoy each other's company and the local fare.

The sweet potato fries were excellent as were the pints of ale.

I wish...

It would be just great to hook up with a group of people who were into riding old iron. I do hope to find a way to discover if there are any other collectors of old bicycles in Thunder Bay. Once found, we will try what you guys did, a vintage ride coupled with a vintage bicycle show and all in place to help promote our Bicycles for Humanity efforts in the city and surrounding area.

Good job and next time I am in your city, perhaps we can hook up for a ride.
