I would be there but I'll be on a tour in Oregon. My '75 California Gran Criterium would have had a fun reunion too!

That said, I always eat before a ride, usually a large breakfast...

I think it's great and congratulate you on cycling your way to 78! I doubt I'll live that long but then when I was younger I never thought I'd see 66 (which is what I am now), so you never know.

Always good to see a quote from Henry Manney III. I read all his articles in Road & Track when I was a kid! Still read passages from my copy of Manney at Large from time to time.
