I don't know about any loops (though I did walk around in a circle at 1:59 yesterday, March 14). Regardless of loops, weather and any unpredictable event not preventing it, we will ride the CCRT on...

I can feel the difference between lighter and heavier wheels/tires. Beyond that I'd say weight is about important for a vintage bike as it is for a modern bike.

You weighed them, right?
