Couldn't have asked for nicer weather or a friendlier bunch of cyclists to ride with!

I keep meaning to do that ride sometime.

malcala622 12-05-16 04:25 PM

I keep missing this ride every month..gotta put a reminder in my phone for next one..hopefully new years day ride is on.

trailangel 12-05-16 04:59 PM

Correct me if I am wrong. First Sunday of every month. 11am. Brookside Park.

Velo-Retro: Rose Bowl Ride

I would not show up at 11. More like 10:30.

Never made it to one, wish it was the second or third Sunday.

Until a few years ago I lived just off of Ave. 64, a few blocks from that ride. Wasn't into C&V then, but sure wish I lived there now. And I miss that weather.

Looks like a great group to ride with. Thanks for the photos.

looks like fun. I would love to try that ride sometime.

Reminds me of my college days at Occidental.

malcala622 12-21-16 04:46 PM

Any info whether this ride is happening January 1st?

unworthy1 12-21-16 04:53 PM

I SUSPECT that there may be a conflict due to the Rose Parade and some little ballgame or such...but Chuck may have that all figured out.
Too bad it's the one day that I'll actually be IN Pasadena on a first Sunday in a long time, but I'd have to borrow a bike/helmet/gear...oh well...

repechage 12-21-16 10:51 PM

The Rose Parade will run on Monday, January 2, 2017.
I think the Rose Bowl gets played that day too.

So, Chuck's ride would be safe on 1/1/2017
This has happened before, and it goes as scheduled.
The old ClassicRendezvous archives are now offline, hopefully someone will figure out how to port them to a modern software and server.

That would indeed be a fun event, and any of my road bikes would qualify. :)

Ditto. The Pasadena Rose Parade is never held on a Sunday.

I need to do this ride... someday. Getting a bike there from my current location will be a chore. I still have friends who ride in the area, though.

malcala622 12-23-16 12:43 AM

As John E. Stated that both events are on Monday.

I'm there for the ride.

I won't be riding a qualifying bike but close enough...old frame/modern parts.

You people... with your shorts. and sunshine.

cdmurphy 12-29-16 10:21 PM

The ride will be going on this Sunday, the 1st. I'll be there with my Centurion Semi-Pro, rocking my Christmas present, a new black and orange wool jersey. :-) (Unless it's raining, then it's fendered touring bike time)

If anyone from the San Diego area has thought about doing this ride, but was put off by the drive -- I've got room for a passenger, and an extra slot on the bike rack. Just pm me if you're interested.

Making a point to do this one in 2017. Looks like fun and it's not far from me at all.

Thanks to the OP for the pics and the reminder.

Classtime 02-03-17 08:45 PM

Just a reminder: Feb. 5, 2017. This would be my first one. Riding a white Medici.

malcala622 02-03-17 11:18 PM

I'm there...Bianchi Trofeo.

malcala622 02-05-17 11:09 AM

Looks like rain is heading to southern California...I know the ride is still on rain or shine but it's a deal breaker for me

Classtime 02-06-17 07:26 PM

Good time w/good people and nice bikes. Easy ride with a good hill to get your HR up for those willing.

malcala622 06-03-17 06:54 AM

Finally I have a Sunday off to go out on this ride.

cdmurphy 06-03-17 09:16 AM

Ill be there with my orange Centurion Semi-Pro.

JoeBass 06-03-17 07:01 PM

Take some photos for us poor souls who can't make it. :)
