Subject: [CR]Kansas City Classic Bicycle Parade & Rally Coming up...

Both of these are open to bikes of all kinds and periods. But I'd especially like to see a healthy turnout of CLASSIC LIGHTWEIGHTS. as well as Highwheelers, tandems, Cycletrucks, Moultons, &c.

So if you're in the region, LMK if you need directions or if I can otherwise assist you in getting here.

Afterwards, if there is enough interest the vintage velo folks may retire to a BBQ (Kansas City's is, of course, the best anywhere) for some bicycle gab.


Saturday, the 16th of June is Bloomsday and as we have every year for the past 5 years, Bloomsday Books will conduct The BLOOMSDAY MESSENGER BIKE RALLY 10:00am at the corner of 55th and Brookside. This is a short ride (3 to 5 miles) through the very attractive streets of Brookside and the Country Club district as well as along the Trolley Track (Henry Meyer) Trail.

Free stout, soda bread, & coffee for participants As well as Celtic music & dance, &c.


Saturday, the 23rd of June, the Kansas City Heritage Roll and Stroll Parade will begin at 9:00am on Southwest Boulevard @ Summit then proceed to the 18th and Vine Jazz district. Home of the Jazz Museum and the only Negro Leagues baseball museum in the nation

This year's theme is Transportation so the director, Lisa Sturgeon, called to ask if I knew of any folks who ride old bikes and would be interested in participating.......

Free T-shirts and a continental breakfast for all participants.

Email me with any questions.....
