Classic Bicycles Auburn 2024

Hi folks,

Save the date!

Wanted to give an update on Classic Bicycles Auburn 2024. Building on the show's success in 2022, the event returns to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum June 7-9 2024 in Auburn Indiana.

The event's focus is on vintage lightweights which includes racing, touring, and track bicycles. Modern production lugged steel and vintage steel mountain bikes are also part of the fun.

There are seminars on Friday and Saturday, a banquet Saturday night, and a show and swap on Sunday. The museum itself is a major part of the fun. The roads in the area are quite nice; in 2022 many folks got together with friends and informally explored the area on their own. There are also some other great car museums in the area to explore.

Classic Rendezvous legend Dale Brown is expected to attend and will present a seminar! And Guy Apple who currently heads CR will be there too. And it looks like Maynard Hershon is also expected to present.

If you have questions, please email Mike Kone at mikekone@comcast.net.

The website is undergoing a revamp but the basic info is in place. Click Here for the show's website.

Plenty of unofficial rides. Nothing stopping you and a good coffee joint at the end of your ride,

Here's a little loop I did - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/40481257

I don't think registration was yet available at the time this thread started but now it is: https://boulderbicycle.bike/classic-...-registration/
Early bird pricing, so get it while you can. I'm doing a weekend package.

I'm thinking of riding with some friends from Bowling Green, Ohio to Auburn and back. No definite plans yet, but speak up if anybody else is interested.

I'm seriously thinking of doing the Auburn Show. I've been to the museum which is fabulous & the drive from Minneapolis is not overly long plus I have relatives south of Chicago that I would visit. I like your suggested ride. Since I am of a rather advanced age, the distance is perfect.

Most roads in the area have very little traffic. I did find at least one where I was uncomfortable with the amount of traffic. But after a half mile, I turned off it and onto quiet roads again. My point being that the roads are in a grid pattern, impossible to get "lost" and if you don't like the particular road you are on, you can exit it after only a mile at the most.

I grew up near Auburn, just across the state line in Ohio. A lot of Amish live in that part of Indiana, so many of the busier roads have wide shoulders to accommodate the buggy traffic. Some of the shoulders are paved, but many are gravel. If you are on a bike, be sure to watch out for road apples.

So if I'd be driving in from Ohio for one day, would Sunday be the best day to come? Swap meet would be fun and I assume all the bikes would be on display?

That's what it looks like to me, although the website is pretty vague. I'm firming up plans to ride from Bowling Green Ohio on Saturday then ride back on Monday (85-ish miles each way). Some friends have expressed interest but no commitments yet.

Sunday is the day with the bike show and swap. There going to be some bike displays on Friday and Saturday (actually possibly Saturday night along side the banquet). But if you can only make one day, Sunday is the day.

The website will have more info added in the coming weeks.

Classic Bicycles Auburn - Early Bird Registration ends soon and update!

Classic Bicycles Auburn is going to be amazing this year! Below you see Rich Gangl working on a frame that will be exhibited in his stellar tribute presentation of bicycles raced by Eddy Merckx. The bicycles are either vintage machines (not actual ones ridden by Merckx) or current re-creations of the machines down to painstaking details. In addition to the bicycles on display, Rich will give a presentation diving into the specifics of the machines based on his countless hours of research. And there will be some great Merckx history as well! This is only one of a number of amazing displays and presentations that will be at Classic Bicycles Auburn.

Early-Bird reduced-price registration for the show in Auburn Indiana June 7-9th ends at the end of the month so register now. If you love vintage lightweight bicycles it is the place to be. Click Here for the show website and to register.
