Looks like I can do 3 nights at the Super 8 in Dodgeville for ~$200. Pretty reasonable.

Update:
The mechanism for payment is a couple of months away, so give up $4 coffee until then and you'll have ample funds....

The number of exhibitors may be limited to 40-50. (100-200 bikes). We will know more after January 11-12.

14 exhibitors (people like us) have registered to date, and 50-60 bikes.

I forgot to broach the subject about a dedicated swap area. At Bartali, swapping took place, plenty of room to do so. Once I know more about the venue, will update that.

Robbie, where else is it being discussed? I have iBob and CR buds who should be interested. Are you the main contact or is it iab? Also pm me, we should exchange alter egos.

Just here, and on his email list.
I'm not a member of CR, but it would be nice to have it on iBob and CR.
No problem doing so.

Weekly bump.

There will be a limit, I believe, based on how much it costs to produce the weekend. Folks, not bikes. We''ll figure that out.

Once we know how many bikes, I can likely get racks made for at least 32-48 bikes.

Paramount(palooza)
Customs
Centurion (step-child category?)
Maybe some modern steel keepers of the flame...

Save weight in the plane for bourbon.


I'll get a head count on stands needed by, say, June or July.
Though the current stand design is nice, I may go for individual stands this time.
Maybe something with a Coppi nameplate. Then I can sell them, or maybe awards.
Only to break even, though. People that know me understand my approach.

Since I'm a 'native-born-Cheesehead' (outside of Oshkosh), and still have family in the Milwaukee area, what do I need to know about this ride? distance/elevation/etc.??? The last time I rode to WI was 40+ years ago... CLE- to MKE and then on to Madison... What sort of C&V bike should I bring (that's all I have)? 2x5 or 3x6? Gearing for a 60-yr-old 'near - Clyde' ?

Very darn good, I say!

Dave will have distances/elevations for the "main ride" and also options. You and I are the same age and size, perhaps.

Our SAG should be able to accommodate two routes. Simply go to www.vivacycling.com and check it out. Bring one bike, no bikes, or a dozen. It's up to you. Good show, food, riding, and spirited banter by bike geeks.

Just don't talk to @crank_addict. He's been so crazy since they let him out.

I have nothing Italian to bring to the table -- just C&V Japanese... The last time I rode to from CLE-to MKE and then on to Madison was 1980, and that was on my Fuji with 51/39 and 14/28-five cog gearing!

Now that I'm older (and supposedly wiser), I'd do it with more 'comfortable' gearing....

This is not an Italian-only situation.

Sure, there are going to be a lot, because there were a lot of them made, and it's hard not to like them.
They're unique, they're cool, and their competition with each other drives their "it" factor. Still does.

But Dave, for sure, likes bikes of all kinds, This is Coppi's birthday party. We celebrate him, and the idea of the time.

I'm taking Japanese too.
No reason not to.
Cool is cool, and there are different kinds of cool. It's all good.

I don't have any Italians either.

If I can fit a 3rd bike in the car, I'll make up for it in some small way by bringing red, white (sort of), and green bikes for the show

Lets just put me down as a "maybe"

I'm about an hour and a half away. Just close enough to make it hard to justify a hotel, but far enough that not getting a hotel would be a little annoying.

I don't have anything really special to bring, but it might be fun to get to ogle some special bikes with my own eyes instead of through a monitor.

The ride route looks great too! If anything, I would probably make it for that.

We'll see!

Best to go over through Freeport and up via Warren. Nice drive, and well worth the time on the road. Booking now would save a bit of money, and it can easily be the best 2 days you've spent around bikes.

If you decide to go via Beloit, go into town and take 81, which can take you all the way to Darlington, on roads you are glad you don't have to ride on a bike. Don't let the dinosaur in one of the farm yards startle you. It's been known to do that.

I can likely get a house with 4 bedrooms for about $275/night.
Fully equipped. That is before tax, so figure $300. That's 75/night each.

Full size kitchen, laundry. Plenty of bike storage in the closed porch.
Safe, too, and very handy to Hollandale....

Also a nice meet-up point for a Saturday ride....just down the hill from the paved trail to Dodgeville, or the other way, a Rails to Trail towards Calamine (past the Brew Pup, the Walker House and Tony's Tap )

The kicker would be it would be Fri/Sat minimum.

I'd need 3 more....
