Subject: [CR]7-29 Next San Diego Vintage" British" Ride in Balboa Park

Would like to encourage as many vintage buffs as possible to attend the Vintage rides put on by Sterling Peters here in San Diego each month. Each ride seems to be better than the last and there are always several neat bikes to see and lots of pleasent conversation and trading etc. that goes on. We are solidifying into a stable and friendley group and would like to see the North County faction remain a part of it all.

Set your sights also on the West Coast event that Chuck Schmidt is organizing, it is certain to attract a large number of exceptional bikes that will never make it to the East Coast for the Cirque on account of shipping concerns, etc.

Glad to be part of this group and looking forward to many good times that are sure to be in our future. I feel for the first time the vintage bike communitity is comming together in a very personal way that can only benifit us all and be the source of pleasure and education for everyone.

Ciao!

The Next San Diego Vintage ride is Sunday, July 29th. We will meet in front of the Automotive Museum in Balboa Park (Park Blvd.& Presidential Way),unless the are some special events going on . In that case,we will meet across Park Blvd (east side of Park Blvd.)at Presidential Way in front of the Old Navy Veterans Hospital. We will meet at 9:30 A.M. for good conversation, show and tell and pictures then depart at 10:00A.M. If you get lost or are running late my Cell Phone number is 619-239-3157 This months theme is "Long Live The Queen" ( British Bikes ) so dust off your old Raleigh Pro- International, Mercian Vincintori, Jack Taylor Super Tourist, Hetchins Magnum Opus, Bates Cantaflex, Woodrup, Carlton, Claud Butler, Vicount, Holdsworth Pro, Bob Jackson, Ron Cooper, Rudge, Hurlow, Harry Quinn, Thanet, Sun,etc... I have talked to many people about the ride and a lot of these bikes will be showing up. This is an easy 25 mile ride that passes through all of the best sights in San Diego. Balboa Park, Mission Hills, Presidio Park, Old Town, along the San Diego River, Ocean Beach. Next we head up to the Point Loma Light House with an optional ride down to the Tide Pools. Then around San Diego Bay past the Star of India sailing ship with a stop for Fish and Chips at Anthony's fishette. On from there we tour the Downtown Historic Gas Lamp Quarter and back to Balboa Park. This ride is always a lot of fun and I encourage everyone in Southern California to attend, and I'm looking forward to seeing all of you there again. Sincerely,
>Sterling Peters
