Today was the annual metric century ride here in our county. Drillium Dude was able to make it over for the ride for his first shot at it (double metric century = 2 C&V bikes). Several other BF'ers wanted to ride but scheduling prevented them from doing so. Saw quite a few C&V bikes and really enjoyed the ride even with the almost 30 miles of 20+mph headwinds on the way out. But, that also made for a great ride back to town. DD is on his way home and I'm sure will post some photos later. Hopefully, we'll get his name in the local paper for one of the small towns we went through as the reporter was quite impressed that the Mondia of DD's was 40 years old and was asking all kinds of questions.
Time for photos:
The parking lot as folks were arriving around 7:45 am
The first C&V we saw - Team Fuji. Original owner - and he used to race it back in the day.
Another nice C&V ride - 1974 Raleigh International with Campy drivetrain - 2nd owner and he's had the bike since 1984.
The flat top dudes at the halfway mark - too bad the photo was a little blurry:
Great ride along the river heading back south:
And, the best for last: Drillium Dude in action
