This morning as I was riding into a small town, I saw a high wheel bike turn out onto the street. I thought it was the owner of the bike shop that was around the corner, so I didn't follow him. As I turned into the park, there was another old bike sitting there, its owner taking a break in the shade. While I was filling my water bottle, two more people rode by on old bikes. Four really old bikes in five minutes, I figured was no accident, so I asked the guy in the shade if they were part of a group. They were at the midpoint of a century ride organized by the Ohio Wheelman for their annual meet in Fidlay. He had a Ranger single speed coaster brake with beautiful wood rims. Another was on a Pederson like this: http://www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/Coo...Full-Right.jpg Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me, so no pictures to prove it happened.
