We had another great CR ride in New Jersey, this time hosted by Gabriel and Rita Romeu. They were great hosts and did a great job of welcoming all of us.

Dan Artley was the one driving the greatest distance, all the way up from Maryland. We also had the honor of riding with omnipotent despot himself.

I will allow others post photos and complete the description of the bikes ridden by everybody, but here is a first attempt of listing some of the participants. I believe there were 13 people:

Mike Schmidt: full pantographed mid-70's De Rosa with real Patina Giantindaro (il despoto omnipotente) Pergolizzi: 1974 Colnago SCIC team bike Gabriel Romeu: Spectrum Rita Romeu: her smile kept me from noticing her bike. Martin Gold: a lovely bike leant to him by the host! Christine and Tom Adams: our tandem powerhouse Joe Bender-Zanoni: Dan Artley:

I was riding my recently finished paris-roubaix equipped Fossati that can be seen here:
