Hello classic rendezvous subscribers:

I'm new to the list and making a brief post to introduce myself to the list. I recently had the pleasure of joining some of the members for the August ride from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA, after finding a link to the ride in a post on E-Bay. I'm originally from Peru, Indiana, and a 1978 graduate of Indiana University. I was on campus during the filming of Breaking Away, but had graduated by the time the movie was released.

I have been an avid cyclist since the mid 70's and raced U.S.C.F. for a brief period during the 80s, while my Step-Son was a Collegiate racer on the Ball State cycling team. I now live in Madison, Wisconsin where I enjoy commuting to work about 6 months out of the year (if I'm lucky).

I've got a small stable of (barely) vintage bikes myself, in 58 cm. :

A Trek 950 racer 1981 a Specialized Allez (I think) circa mid 1980's A Merckx Strada mid 80's A Trek 5500 carbon fiber ~1993 components newer frame (no hissing please) and a Trek 728 1982 (sadly in need of a frame repair at the present)

If you're in Madison and need a riding buddy look me up, or contact me at tom.mckamey@verizon.net.
