Another great ride today in Pasadena. It was great seeing everyone again. Little chilly for these California bones (I expect laughing from the right coasters). 57 and windy at the start and sunny 63 at the finish. Still nice ride, cool bikes, good times. I only got a few pictures. If anybody got more, please post.




Scott's Klein designed Aluminum Schwinn.


Cub House service car?









Nice powdercoated frame built by rider, Joe.

Pasadena group was well represented on Eroica today. Good times. Perfect weather, downhill tailwind coming home. Hope to be back on the Pasadena ride next time.

Missing Charles, Carmen and Bart, but they were there.

My old Legnano, perfectly geared for easy, short coastal Eroica.

Some amazing bikes in this thread. For me, the stand out is the black Jack Taylor Flying Gate. Also, the blue Harry Quinn caught my attention, I have a similar frame by RJ Quinn.

Nice turnout on today's June 2019 Pasadena vintage ride. Couple of new riders showed up, lots of two wheel eye candy on a gray gloomy day.

Glad everyone had a good time and sorry I had to miss the ride today, was helping my 84 y/o mom recovering from total hip surgery. Happily she's doing well so hope to see everyone on July's ride. Reminder for 2019 Eroica California attendees to register at super early bird discounted rate before June 6 for 2020 event.
