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.

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.
