Ladees and gentulmen!
The 9th annual Cirque du Cyclisme is only one month away!
More details of the upcoming Cirque 3 days (3 ring Circus!) have been put up on the web site.
Key features, in case you miss them:
- The Friday night Charity Auction has morphed into quite an event! In addition to the exciting and sometimes raucous auction itself (benifiting Operation Smaile this year) In addition to a buffet dinner, there will be the Premier of the full length feature film The Jazz Sport, Jeff Groman's labor of love tribute to the 6 Day Racinf era.
- Saturdays Seminars will feature very intriguing speakers and topics:
1 Charles Andrews & Matt Gorski, California. "Considerations in restoring and renovating fine vintage bicycles."
2 Dave Moulton, South Carolina. Former master frame builder and designer, now a writer, songwriter, and published author.
3 John Barron, Minnesota. "Understanding and collecting classic bicycle components, illustrated by my collection."
4 Peter Weigle, Connecticut. "Design considerations and approaches to fine bicycle construction."
And finally, our annual Banquet & awards ceremony is lucky have a wonderful fellow as speaker, Ted Ernst, who has seen much of the cycling realm that we all love. From 6 day racing, to running a successful "pro" bike shop, to founding the South Bay Wheelmen club in 1961 and the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix Bike Race in 1962, Ted has a vast and fascinating story to tell. Aldo Rss is helping prepare his first-ever power point show of pics and memories! Awesome!
And of course Sunday will be the feature day, big ride, bike show, swap meet, etc etc!
