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.
