Baltimore Area Vintage Ride

10th Annual Retro Ride Saturday Nov 4th at Oregon Ridge Park, Shawan Road exit West off I-83 (north side of Baltimore).

- 9 am or so to socialize - ride begins at 10 am - No awards, no trophies. Just talking about and riding bikes. - cost is FREE Wear your oldest jersey, bring out your oldest bike. The Retro Ride celebrates the artistry and craftsmanship of lugged steel, downtube shifters, hairnet helmets, and five speed freewheels. How often does a stranger let you ride his 1936 restored Schwinn Paramount track racer? Retro Ride has some real gems. Modern bikes are welcome too, fixed gear are discouraged as the course is not friendly to a single gear. New improved ride loop is around 35-40 miles, pace is social. It's Baltimore County - one can't get away from the hills. Shawn Downing (410) 889 5518, shawn.downing@jhu.edu
