ATTENTION ALL LIST MEMBERS!!!!!!!!:
With the impending heat wave this weekend and temps in the mid 40's, what better time for the next monthly meeting of the Brooklyn Velodrome Vintage Wheelmen? This will be an informal gathering of all N.Y. metro area and visiting out of town cyclists who share an interest in vintage bicycles and cycling history. The BVVW is a tangent of Gruppo Sportivo Pergolizzi. The meeting will take place on Thursday, February 10th, 2004. Through the generosity of member Greg Arnold we will meet at his home 812-Park Avenue (75th Street), N.Y., N.Y. Just let the doorman know your there to see Greg. Absolutely NO BICYCLES will be allowed in the building for this event. We will talk the old talk (1930 to 1980) of cycling, our heroes, and their bicycles. The BVVW group, comprised of about 20 (WOW!) hardcore certified freaks, will hangout at Greg's house and talk bikes for about 2 hours. Last meeting 14 showed with 5 regulars absent! Subject for the evenings event will be a rare film of the 1951 cycling season on The Continent and another short very rare film on Eddy Merckx. These will run about an hour in total.
