And thanks to Kevin for joining us on a lovely Peugeot Galibier (?), one of the last of the racing lugged Peugeots, made with Columbus SLX, nice clean lugwork, built with Campy Athena and really in fine condition. Mike and Ray were on their Wiegles, and Joe rode his Sieber fixed. The Sieber is the only bike I've ever seen that used Reynolds Hi Manganese tubing, and had the pretty Schwinn "rotary phone dial" high flange hubs. (And how much longer will we be able to use that nick name before our push-button descendants will wonder what the heck we are talking about?) Another lovely day, even nicer than before, although the beach traffic delayed the ride start about 45 minutes. Putting my cell phone on the ride announcements proved to be a canny step (suggested by Steve Maasland), and I recommend it to all future ride leaders. Sorry more couldn't make it, you missed some nice riding. No mechanicals today, just good times although Joe did complain though about the gradient of Monmouth County highway overpasses. Hope to see you all again soon.
