I will desperately try to make May 7th on my Centurion IronMan. Crashed it hard last year, recently repaired, so 25 mellow miles should be just about right.

so is the North SD County stage

Can atleast do stage 1.
Not sure if this signup is for all 3 stages but would be nice if single stages can be entered, as 3 consective weekend commitment not easy from many.

The poster says: "Let us know if you plan to make all three or just a single event." But I cannot figure out how to sign up.

I am aiming for just the third but not sure a CAAD4 qualifies as vintage. If it does, I can rush to complete the build.

I hope there's enough recovery time between stages for those vintage SoCal road warriors to refresh.

I figured we signed up just by replying here ... Can't really let us not ride, right?

joesch thanks for posting. can't make the pasadena one but just might be able to make the two san diego county ones on saturday before work.
will try to drag out the '85 pinarello on the 5.13 saturday ride from shelter island to the strand (and presumably take the ferry back to dtown sd).

Really? No signing of agreements for assumption of risk by participation or liability waivers? (I suppose asking someone to do so is not very vintage.)

Seriously, where can I find out more information about and/or sign up for these events, especially the third?

Where is confente as this post needs more details and/or a link to the actual event.
Looks to be a great set of rides but a little more time would have helped more entrants plan these in the schedules

I live 20 states over, so the rides are not in the cards for me... but I want to double down on the comments for the posters. The graphic art work on them is quite awesome.
