Portland OR C&V Roadbike Ride - PedalPalooza 2014, Sun June 15th

I have put a C&V roadbike ride on the Pedalapooza 2014 calendar of bike events. The ride will meet at 10:30 am on Sunday June 15 at Velocult, 1969 NE 42nd. Here is the description -

We will meet at Velocult with our classic & vintage road bikes, to celebrate lugs, downtube shifters, sew-ups, high-flange hubs, drillium, Nuovo Record, corncobs, Bennoto tape, and the era of Merckx, Hinault, and the Other Greats. After suitable ogling (of bikes!), we will take a socially paced and shortish ride, which might include an epic ascent of Mt Tabor sans compact chainset, and return to Velocult where it might just be time for beer. I will buy a pint for the first to present with a Huret Jubilee or Campagnolo Porta Catena. Two pints for a Suicide Shifter.

Hope we have a good turnout of C&V bikes and their riders! I know we have a few Portland folks on the forum - anyone want to get a free pint off me, you know what you have to do.

Ah, I forgot that!

Do you think I should change the date? To get a better turnout?

Too late for the printed calendar but I can change it on the online calendar.

I'm going to hand out flyers at the kickoff ride this Friday, so at that point the days will be set in stone.

Sorry, I have to cancel this ride. Life is getting resolutely in the way of riding! Next year maybe. There is a vintage roadbike ride in Vancouver WA th same day, also on the Pedalpalooza calendar.
