I was trying to avoid a lengthy initial post and let readers figure out the complex Eroica rules on their own. They can be found here:

"Apparently, if you show up at the start line on a 1987 Cannondale, you will be politely asked to leave, as only "certain" pre-1988 bikes are allowed. But hey, at least they allow pre-1988 Shimano-made components, that seems like a major concession, though I imagine you might get some disparaging looks from fellow riders."

A 1987 Cannondale WOULD be welcome on the NOVA ride on Saturday, but it clearly does not qualify as a "classic" bike because it uses two modern and non-qualifying technologies (oversized aluminum tubing and TIG-welded construction).

Questions about qualifying bikes, event regulations, or other issues can be directed to Eroica California at: info@eroicacalifornia.com.

Whatever bike you bring and whatever ride you choose, the Central California coast offers terrific scenery and some very challenging bike riding in April.
