This was a bicycle ride for vintage (or vintage reproduction) road bikes, held on July 4, 2019, otherwise known as Independence Day.
Hosted by a friend of the Gravel Cyclist crew, Big Head Todd, the ride blurb was as follows – “We’ll cover some roads that are still like they were in 1976 on technology that represents the technology of that era. Saddle / pedal / clothing choices are open to each rider but please, no tires over 32c / 1.25”. Think guidelines similiar to Eroica, and you get the picture.
Not everyone chose to accept or follow the memorandum, but regardless, a fun time was had by all!
Audio best experienced with headphones.
