You are all invited to my 3rd annual DC area Autumnal Vintage bike ride!

As we will be getting into the less nice weather this seems like the last chance while weather is 'friendly'.

Per Peter Kohler's suggestion, I would like to have a British lightweight theme. (Hope to have my Gillott all spiffed up.)

Otherwise, most anything with 1, 2, or 3 wheels made out of steel will be acceptable....

I have scouted out a circa 30 mile route from here (Kensington, MD) out to the west that (while not flat) is certainly quite doable on a fixed. (I have ridden it on fixed without difficulty)

Non-riders, spouses, etc welcome, of course. (My spousal unit will not be riding)

We will assemble circa 10 am with an aim to begin riding at about 10:30. Food, beverages served afterwards.

Please let me know if you plan to attend so I can be sure to have sufficient food, etc available. At a minimun, we will serve Pizza, homemade Chili and Beer. Food and/or beverage donations most welcome.

I will send directions when you let me know you plan to attend. But we are located just off the beltway north of DC, the Connecticut Avennue exit off I-495.
