    Favorite C&V photos of 2014

    Seeing as we're already on the New Year's themed threads, let's post some of our favorite photos of the year.

    I'll start with Doc and Robbie emerging from the tunnel on the Badger State Trail (putting the lights away and finding the sunglasses).

    Running with the ponies in the Almonzo. I'm a spec heading over the far hill, but got the full experience (horses are faster than bikes, and they can sure climb)

    2014 was my most eventful year yet, when it comes to C&V.

    February: beautiful winter rides for the C&V 100 Clunker Challenge:



    March: some fantastic machinery at the Stalen Ros in Neerkant, Holland. Like these: a Bergh Sport, an Aandewiel and a Magneet:



    June: nice hot weather touring in the French Provence with mrs non-fixie:



    June: riding with fellow-members (like Zieleman on his Zieleman) and other friends in the Retroronde van Vlaanderen, in Belgium:



    September: retro ride with the Dutch C&V community in Amerongen, Holland:



    September: back in France again with my girl, in the Medoc this time:



    November: lots of pretty Italian and Belgian bikes Stalen Ros in the velodrome in Ghent, Belgium:



    November: C&V event in Rotterdam, Holland. Lots of nice local bikes, like those made by Wout Verhoeven and Manus Brinkman, who were both there in person as well:

    Easily chosen, of 2014 and as far back as I can remember:

    Chicago should be proud: bibliobob on Bianchi, John on Colnago, and "that young guy" making it look easy on Trek (I think)

    Killer cool: crank_addict


    Easily the most unique cycling experience I've had:
    Monroe Town Square, deserted, opera playing from unseen speakers.
    Steel riders, finishing up Day Three; "ride it like you mean it." Chrome Molly and Doc (rccardr), showing me how it's done.

    I went for a ride on a cold gray rainy morning, dried off and warmed up at a coffee shop, when I emerged the sun was out and I cruised home.
