Just a last minute note about Larz Anderson just in case you've not read prior postings.
A number of events beside the Concours are planned for Sunday August 14th. David Herlighy, noted cycle historian and author will be attending and doing a book signing and talk, the Wheelman will be attending and plan on riding at the show in period dress with possibly giving demonstrations on riding a highwheelers. Mavic Wheels which is now a sponsor of the show is planning a demonstration. A few other demonstations are planned for the day.
At 9:00AM Jack Demerest or as most of his friends know him as Five Speed Jack will open the day by leading a ride through Bostons famed Emerald Necklace and return to the show at roughly 10:00AM for the shows opening. For those who want to drop off bikes and go on the ride, I will be at the Museum of Transportation by 8:30AM to take bikes in so those folks can go on the 9:00AM ride.
For more information about the show, please see our
