C&V Bikes in Action!

Everybody posts pics of their bike standing somewhere, often in front of a white garage door I decided to post this one of me riding mine. This me riding in the 1st Annual Assault on the Peak 2010. Here I'm clearing a switchback just above Glen Cove around 11,500-ft. Let's see yours!

Great picture and I love the Bottecchia in action. Is that a REG bottle cage?

LOL...I don't know about setting the pace. I came in around 213 out of 315 that started IIRC. Something like that. But I finished and the old Bott was a pleasure to ride, especially on the way down where it handled the highspeed corners like a champ.

Yes, REG bottle cages on the handlebars and downtube. They are fantastic. I should have found some blue sports drink to match the bike though

This isn't "in action" technically, more like resting between actions. Taken this September (2010), Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island, Maine.

Here's a few:

My dad and I at the start of a 100K ride in October. He's 70 and on a 80's Vitus 979 repainted to look like a Peugeot so my mom wouldn't know he had a new bike. I'm on my late 70's PX10 courtesy of BF member Kpug. The fog only lasted for about 5 miles but that was enough to soak the entire body with condensation.



My daughter on her '82 Trek 610:



A good friend on an 80's Sekai 2600:

HA-HA, I love that. It sometimes takes my wife months to figure out that I've made a change, but it's always good to be prepared.

The first pic is me riding my 88 Paramount to a state park for a camping trip. Please pardon the obtrusively loud shirt.

The second pic was when we were saved by strangers - we had left at 5PM, but took a 10 mile detour when we went the wrong way. By the time we were on the right way, it was dark, and google maps had given us a narrow, busy road to go on. It was dangerous, and to make it worse, my friend had a large chunk of metal rip into his tire (literally gashing it open so it bulged in a spot). Scared half to death and trying to figure out how we'd get somewhere for the night without light, cars, or good reception, we stopped on the side of the road, and a pair of kind strangers in a pickup truck actually told us "get in, you'll get killed on this road". They ended up taking us 16 miles to the campground we were aiming for that night.

The third pic is yet another case of being saved by the grace of strangers. Once in the campground, we had no campsite in which to sleep. We met a boy scout leader who had gotten in late and was also lost; we helped him find the campground, and he let us share his spot with him.

Even today, although we are worried about freezing rain!

Scratched our ride!

We have a nice coating of ice everywhere.
