Just a quick image of day one, Velo Rendezvous:

Lovely, lovely sunny day, 25 miles up and down the LA beaches, drop dead gorgeous restored machines and grizzled battle scarred veterans abounding. Stopping on the way back for a quick malted hop refueling. Baylis, Grabus and Pergolizzi dueling at the front. Pergo going so hard he overcooks it into a turn and runs into the sand on his '73 Hurlow. Lovely dinner at a Mexican restaurant overlooking the bay. Later, guiding Wayne Bingham back to the hotel becaue he met us at the ride start ( and who saved our lives by renting a minivan, saving Pergs, Mike Schmidt and I from having to shoehorn three bikes back into the Crown Vic), and ending the day before the hotel lounge fire with a glass of Kentucky's finest at my side, Pergo, Bingham, Schmidt and self sitting and listening to Bret Horton spin stories of acquiring the earliest know Paris Roubaix prize medal.

Wish you were here.
