11/02/2009: "Another Fine Day"
Another fine day on the Velo Rétro Rose Bowl Ride. Left around 9AM so I could take it easy, and arrived at the meetup at almost exactly 10:30, so I had time to loaf around, gawk at some fine machines, and chat up the regulars. Despite a stunning clear day, the crowd was smaller than usual, but it was big enough for sociability, and we rode the 25-mile loop at any easy-ish pace. And I took a couple of snapshots before we saddled up:
My old Bottecchia and a Trek representin' for the fendered folk!
Chuck's Della Santa custom.
About 70 miles fixed for me, in very dry, hot weather--think it was just short of 90°F most of the day.
And then home to a birthday dinner, cooked by the incomparable Gina!--for my son Jack--who rode his fixie over.
My kind of Sunday....
