The BVVW group is comprised of about 20 hardcore certified freaks, who will hangout and talk bike stuff for about 2 hours.The BVVW is a tangent of Gruppo Sportivo Pergolizzi. This will be an informal gathering of all N.Y. metro area cyclists who share an interest in vintage bicycles and cycling history. Youse is all invited. Meet at the corporate headquarters of The Hartford Insurance Co., 2 Park Avenue, 7th floor (between 32ed and 33rd Streets (on the West side of the Avenue), Manhattan, New York City.
You MUST bring PHOTO I.D. !!!!!!!!!!
We will talk the old talk (1930 to 1980) of cycling, our heroes, and their bicycles and parts. Subject for the evenings discussion will be "Woman in Cycling" with videos and hand outs and maybe even a real live girl racer! Meet at 5:30 p.m. for a 6:00 o'clock start. BIG Thank you goes to Mike Schmidt for the place and Eddie Albert for the videos. ALSO: a quick swap meet/ AUCTION afterwards; so bring some cycling related stuff but NO bigger then a set of wheels and I'll give you a hint of what The Cirque Auction is like. At around 8:00p.m. we will go for eats. Tentatively, the restaurant
will be John's Pizzeria at 278 Bleeker St. in Greenwich Village. Pizza is cooked in a coal fired brick oven. We seen the coal pile in the basement while waiting on line outside a couple a meetings ago. Budweiser beer is on tap and cold! Ernesto and Joe the waiters take good care of us.
