Sorry about my garbled post from a couple of days ago re the Resilion brake picture. It seems that whenever I try to send mails via the web browser from work instead of using the Mail program at home results are
less than satisfactory. Comes from using a Doze instead of a proper Apple Mac, I suppose. Thanks to Michael Schmidt from somewhere in the Alps for putting things right at a moment when I couldn´t find the time to check my mails for days.
Anyway, more important at least for those of you who are either residents of Central Europe or hyperactive, our cycling club will stage
an event for old bikes next summer. We will have our Century/Audax/RTF
ride on June 14, and on top of the usual choice of four well-signposted
distances (45, 75, 115, 153 km) with free refreshments every 25 km and
sag wagon backup in a beautiful, undulating countryside there will be the possibility to ride in a special group of riders of bikes complying
roughly with CR rules. We will ride together until the first refreshment stop/control post, and after that riders will be able to make choices re distances.
About an hour before the ride there will be a Parc Fermé for the riders of modern bikes (expected around 4-500) to look at the old stuff, and there will be a small cycle jumble, too.
Those of you who might have longer distances to cover to reach the event might be interested to learn that on Sunday, 15 June, there will
be another Audax ride nearby (the new calendar of events isn´t out yet, but there always is; there´s so many), or alternatively one might go
for a private vintage ride somewhere in the vicinity. Also for those of
you who might want to spend a night or two in the region there will most certainly be local cyclists who will be able to put you up.
Regards, Toni Theilmeier, Belm, Germany.
