Dallas, vintage ride and picnic

Mark your calendars now! Southwest Frameworks is (finally) planning a vintage ride and picnic, with emphasis on the picnic. We've set the date for 12:00pm (noon), October 5, 2008, with the probable location being White Rock Lake. We will supply hamburgers, hot dogs, homemade potato salad, and cold drinks. We might even print a commemorative (and highly collectible ) t-shirt. If you want anything else, please bring it!

The plan is to meet at one of the covered picnic areas, do a little vintage bike riding, have some food, and admire the vintage bikes. If it rains, we just eat and admire!

More details to come. I'll set up a mailing list and a page on our website for those interested.

Stay tuned,
David Cheakas
Southwest Frameworks
Dallas Texas

Mod Note: See detailed information below!

Oh Man, it's a Sunday. Great for most, unless you work deep nights on Sunday nights/Monday mornings.

However, there is a little thing called vacation days!

Sounds good to me. I may bring Goldie to show off some of David's painting.

David, sounds great. I was planning on doing another vintage ride in early October myself so this plan works perfectly. Going to throw this out for any interested parties:

I plan to start from RBM Richardson (or somewhere very close to), ride down to White Rock for the Southwest Frameworks ride. Time TBA, but likely to be 12:30ish to make it down to the lake with plenty of time to spare. From RBM down to the lake, and if we decide to do a couple of laps around the lake, then back up, figuring that would put us at around 46-50 mi for the day?

Hey guys,
I've received quite a few off-list replies so it sounds as if we'll have a pretty good turnout. I've also received some inquires about what "vintage" means in this context. I'll go by what Dale from Classic Rendezvous says. "....bicycles made from the early days of the Twentieth Century, up to 1983.” I think for our purposes, anything up into the late 1980's. Maybe early 1990's if you promise to bring a dessert tray...

I'm going out to WR today to scout a location, so I hope to have that nailed down in a day or two. Joanna is about to finish a web page with all the details. That also should be ready in a day or two. She's done a real nice poster. I'll post it as a PDF if anyone is interested in printing it out and taking it to a bike shop for their bulletin board.

Big Thicket is always a nice place for a BBQ - plenty of parking, bathrooms, an there are swing sets and a slide nearby if you have kids (not sure if this is a family encouraged event or not....)

Anyway - I'll be there!

Hey riders,

Break out the wool, find the hairnets, and air up the sew-ups, we've finalized plans for the first annual (maybe) Retro Ride and Picnic!

Details:

Sunday, October 5, 2008, 12:00 noon
Tee Pee Hill, White Rock Lake

We originally scheduled this for 2:00 pm, but looked at the crowds on Sunday and decided it was better at 12:00 noon.

This is more of a picnic with vintage bikes and their riders. The idea is to meet at noon at the pavilion at Tee Pee Hill, have lunch, then if anyone wants to, go for a few laps around the lake.

Southwest Frameworks will supply hot dogs, hamburgers, chili, homemade potato salad, cold drinks, and cookies. If you want anything else, feel free to bring it. I'm not sure if alcohol is permitted at the park.

I'd like to get a head count so we don't run out of anything, so please let me know if you want to attend. It also might be fun to get a list of the bikes that will attend.

Right now the plan is that Joanna and I will get to the picnic spot early to stake the claim. However, depending on the advanced headcount, we might opt to reserve the larger pavilion just to make sure there's enough room for everyone.

We're also working on a t-shirt for the occasion. I'm sure it'll be a much sought after, highly collectible e-bay item soon after the event. I'm trying something different this time. Instead of just giving them away as I always do, I'm offering them for sale for the cost of printing them, which rounds up to $5.00 each. This will also go to help defray the cost of food for the picnic. If you're interested in the shirts please let me know so I can print enough of them. As I say, I've always given my shirts for free, so this is a new thing for me.

I've received quite a few off-list replies so it sounds as if we'll have a pretty good turnout. I've also received some inquires about what "vintage" means in this context. I'll go by what Dale from Classic Rendezvous says. "....bicycles made from the early days of the Twentieth Century, up to 1983.” I think for our purposes, anything up into the late 1980's. Maybe early 1990's if you promise to bring a dessert tray...

I'll send out more information on the picnic, including a link to a poster Joanna is putting together. Feel free to forward any e-mails and links to others who may be interested in the picnic. The more vintage bikes the better!

Let me know if you want to be taken off the list.

Keep those old things on the road! Of course I mean the bikes...

And I'm planning to bring my 5yo daughter and her hello kitty bike with training wheels. Is there a spot nearby she and I could ride without her getting run down?

I'll soon post more information on the picnic, including a map. I'd also like to get a list of the vintage bikes that will be attending, and a headcount on how many people are planning on attending.

I'll be on a gazelle. It'll either be white or blue. Depends on my mood and if I've rebuilt the white one by then.

Descripton of Tee Pee Hill- note that on the little map shown, north is NOT at the top of the page!
http://www.watermelon-kid.com/places...ur/tp_hill.htm
I think this is it:
http://maps.yahoo.com/;_ylc=X3oDMTEx...dallas%2C%20tx

Right now, I've got an inquiry out to ascertain if I have a vintage bike or not. If so, I will try to be there, though probably won't get there until 12:20 or so. And it'll just be me.

Figure I'll be there about 12:20 or so with "The Thing", which was made "anywhere from appx 1970- 1985" per an email from Worksman.

Is anyone interested in riding with me down from RBM? I'll be departing there some time around 10:45 to ensure we have plenty of time to get down to White Rock Lake. Shouldn't take more than an hour's ride even at the most relaxed of paces, but a little buffer is always good right?

Fortunately you'll only have a 15 mph headwind on the way down :-) Looks like I've probably made other plans for Sunday. You guys have fun!!!
