So, a great big thank you to hosts Charles Andrews and Carmen, and all the rest of the gang. They did the 38 mile ride that I couldn't make (this is, after all, a work trip (ASHRAE, if that matters to anyone), and I did have a *@! commmittee thing Sunday AM). But, they welcomed me when I rolled up on my (off topic folding bike), and there was much good commaraderie, and beautiful bikes. and ya'll watch out for Chuck Schmidt's new killer feeding bags with great vintage logos! The head spins about the bikes there: Confente #1 (?), Cuevas tandem, multiple Hetchins, and the customary Masi, Cinelli, .... Lovely bikes, lovely people. And then there was Brian Bayliss's own Bruce Gordon, in colors Bruce might not have recognized!

Thanks again,
