Hi Norm,

Steve G here, checking in from Westford, MA. I would be interested in the possibility of a New England vintage ride. Would probabably be willing to drive 100 or so miles, perhaps a bit more. Back in the early 80's I was working in Williamstown MA and living in Pownal VT, so I know you have access to nice cycling routes in your area. (Though I'm not sure my vintage legs would do so well with the terrain in southern VT anymore!) Over in my direction, some of the nicest cycling is in-and-around the Harvard, MA area (the town, not the university!!) It is very scenic with gently rolling terrain. In any case, please keep me posted if there is enough interest and plans for a ride materialize.

Thanks and best regards, Steve Goodwin Westford MA

I'm wondering, do any of you get together for vintage rides? The So Cal gang shouldn't be the only ones having fun with vintage bikes. If no ride currently exists, how far are you willing to drive for a ride? I'm in the Berkshires but would be willing to drive to Central Ma. North Central Ct, Southern Vt. or South West N.H. I'm willing to organise a ride if the interest is there. Please respond if interested and suggest locations and favorite routes. Also, if your up for doing a century there is a nice one coming up Sept. 10. The Connecticut Valley Century (COVAC) uses a scenic route in the Connecticut River Valley between Northampton and Brattleboro and the terrain is gentle enough for vintage legs and vintage bikes. I'll be riding it on my 80's Basso.

Let's try and get something going before the snow flies.
