Sorry about that, I just meant I survived the accident. Vague humor - for which I have an unfortunate penchant. I know you have or had one and I have a musician buddy who uses one to haul his gear around. The roller bearings on the cargo deck are perfect for what he does, that and the look of course.

PFB, glad you are OK. Too bad about the car, but it can be replaced.

Meanwhile, a most excellent bike show on Saturday followed by an outstanding dinner.
Best swag bags ever.
Excellent ride today.
Brats, beer and pastys at the finish line.
David Beck, you rock.

Many, many pics taken by others, which I'm sure will be posted shortly.

I am sorry I did not know about this weekend in Hollandale. I want to attend this next year. I can make it a dual purpose trip, visit family and friends in Rockford/Loves Park, IL, and attend the events in hollandale. Is there anybody that puts out info other than on BikeForums? I'd like to get an advanced reminder, if that is possible.

I had a wonderful time meeting all new people - this was a great couple of days, and there were so many cool bikes on display, it was hard to take them all in. Dave totally rocks for putting this on - this was a great midwestern experience. Oh, and the riding was fantastic.

To the organizers and support- thank you for the effort. It was a really great event.

I wish I could have been there on saturday for the bike show, but family obligations just get in the way of life, right?!

Anyways, the 100k route was a blast. I ended up with 5000' of climb per the GPS, so certainly no small day of riding.
I was amazed at how little gravel is in SW WI. If that same route were in Iowa, 85% of it would have been gravel, based on the rural roads and minimal use. I would certainly ride more paved roads if they were like what I experienced today!
Had some good conversations on the road and it was really neat to see so much steel in one place.


Unfortunately, I snapped my crank arm bolt a few miles from the end, so I slowly spun to the finish 1 footed.

Never crossed my mind to expect anything for free. My only desire was to enjoy the company. Its a no support ride so I really expect no support. Would not even consider a free spaghetti dinner, I only hoped to be able to show up after I took my wife out to dinner and everyone was finished eating? I'm starting to think that my low expectation may not even be fulfilled and I will not feel very welcome? If not there are lots of things in the area for us to do. I will still have fun.
I really enjoyed talking with you and your wife, and I'm guessing you are now familiar with hills. A privilege for me, no doubt.

We really enjoyed having a beer with you. You're an excellent host, very fun to be with. Thank you for your hospitality. We had a great time exploring your home town after the ride Sunday. So much history. It was a great weekend. As for the hills, we did not get along. OH BOY! LOL

I really want to thank Dave and Robbie for all of their hard work setting up this great event. So many great people, so many really great bikes. I really had a great time.

The ride was fun but proved to be very hard for me. I have never been on hills that go on for so long. So many too. I will no longer complain about the hills in my area. It was a beautiful area to ride in though. I just need better gearing and an oxygen tank. Lol

Just tell people you are strong, like ox, sorry that happened to you but at least it was at the end. Back in my trying to go fast days I had a speed play pedal disintegrate on me, after many years of service and little to no maintenance I should add, so I got to practice my one legged pedaling drills to get home.

Not to sound ungrateful but I was hoping for many more pictures by now of this event, we left coasters have to live vicariously for those mid Midwest rides. , I'd Love to see some close ups of all those Steel beauties in the bike show.

PFB sorry about your car and the damper on your weekend but glad you and the bikes are ok and unscathed, as John Candy would have said - that will buff right out. Hope your insurance company comes through,

+1

This seems to have become a theme lately; there's all this build-up, then next-to-nothing after the big event. Those couple pics of the long lines of bikes outside in the bright sunlight had me hoping for close-ups, too.

Maybe everyone is still tired/recovering. Hopefully we'll see some pics later in the week. Please? Thanks

Close ups are coming!!!!! We are sorting thru them trying to pick the best. There were so many great bikes and great people. I think one interesting moment was when a parade of Porsche's went by the display (pictured above) and I thought to myself as they waved......yes, you have some cool exotic cars and what you are looking at are equally cool - exotic bikes.

Thank you Dave, thank you Robbie. Thank you everyone who attended! It was awesome.

While we're waiting for the photos to be uploaded, and the follow-on comments, a bit about the weekend:

First, sincere thanks to Dave @iab and Rob @RobbieTunes for their behind-the-scenes and in-front-of-the-camera hard work. It would not have been the success it was without your efforts. THANK YOU.

I missed the warmup ride on Friday, but I'm sure others will fill that gap. The Friday get-together at Tony's Tap was great. Nice to see some friends from previous rides, and to put names with new friend's faces. This is a really remarkable group - different backgrounds, ages, education, jobs, from different parts of the country - but we all enjoy cycling with all the facets that it brings together.

On Saturday morning, we met at the guest house for another warmup ride. Immediately, we're climbing - this is a theme that repeats itself many times. Good roads, and the group stopped often enough to keep everyone together. In Dodgeville, we rode a rails-to-trails that I think is called the Military Ridge Trail (please correct me if I'm mistaken). It ran the gamut - pavement, chip-n-seal, gravel, sand, and mud. The muddy parts made it a little risky to keep the speed up, but I don't think there were any casualties. We agreed to meet up again at the A&W in Dodgeville for a root beer (as a recovery drink, of course), and then to head back together. A quick shower, and it was off to Hollandale to set up the bikes for the show. There were some VERY nice machines there, and some that are the only example of the breed (at least the only examples I've seen). A lot of time to talk and meet folks that weren't at Tony's the night before. Think about the accumulated bicycle knowledge that was in the Hollandale town hall on Saturday - truly staggering. There was bread, olive oil, and parmesan cheese to take the edge off before dinner. The dinner was first rate, can't say enough good things about it. Afterwards the awards were handed out, and I apologize for not remembering the recipients. Then we packed up the bikes, cleaned up, and headed back to our various accomodations. Sunday's ride awaits.

We met at the Hollandale town hall again Sunday morning at 8am, for coffee, scones, bananas, and other assorted delicacies. Fuel, you know. Dave and Rob were in the cat-herding business and were mostly successful. We rolled out around 9am, and guess what - a relatively flat start for a little while, then a right turn and a respectable climb. Someone had painted a purple COPPI on the road about 2/3 of the way up. The climb and subsequent descent theme played out often and was unrelenting. A couple of the climbs on County Road Z and Sandy Rock just weren't fair - you crest what you think is the top, only to see a "wall" yet to be climbed. It wasn't actually a wall when you got to it, but it was a little demoralizing to see it and realize that you're not even close to being finished with that climb. But you persevere and you earn the reward on the other side.

One of the descents early on came up to a T, with a left turn and the fresh chip-n-seal had left a fair amount of loose gravel right where you needed to stop and check for traffic. There were a few skidmarks in that gravel when I got there, but I didn't see any evidence of bandages, blood, or surplus bike parts - so apparently everyone got through that part safely. County Z had a few rough spots, but for the most part the roads were in great shape. My GPS track showed a couple of descents at over 40mph, so I guess the work to climb up for them was worth it.

The rest-stops-that-weren't-rest-stops-because-this-was-an-unsupported-ride were welcome, and a sincere thanks to those folks spending their time to help a bunch of moderately-insane cyclists enjoy a great ride in beautiful southwest Wisconsin.

Brats back at the Hollandale town hall afterwards were a nice way to crown off the weekend. Congrats to Allan @nomadmax and Pete @Chrome Molly for being beasts. A welcome to his first event to Nic @natterberry with his very nicely done Trek. Nic and I rode together for most of the ride on Sunday, and I enjoyed that very much.

I feel privileged to have enjoyed the people, bikes, and the rides as much as I did.

For preservation and future readers, here's the original thread about this terrific celebration.

https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...rio-coppi.html

Firstly, I want to thank Dave for hosting and his tremendous effort into Centenario Coppi celebration. Do realize, this guy just returned from Europe, home for only 1 day, then dashed up to Hollandale to prepare. But... again realize, this same multi-talented extraordinaire, MADE the classy trophy's, swag kits, art - posters etc.. MADE the dinner for the hungry hound bikers.... including MAKING the cakes!

iab,,, you done Fausto proudly.

Now a little more about that RobbieTunes- kung foo kixazz on getting arraingments, promoting and git er done ride! Thank you, sir.

His karate kick while riding has got to be videoed. That left leg is brutal strong as his clipless pedal was beaten worn by the strength. I witnessed a half dozen kicks ---- lookout Norris.

It was a pleasure seeing familiar faces and meeting many new. AND this includes Robbies family and friends. Terrific group!

Anyways, I'll post a few pics for now and recap later. I did stay an extra day, this Monday and took in another ride. Spectacular sunny conditions in cycling haven. The roads are beautiful and absolutely fun! Washed the car (before myself),,,, loaded up, chowed down at the Red Rooster before the trip home.

Cheers~

Kudos to @iab and @RobbieTunes for a fantastic ride. The roads were terrific with little to no traffic and there were fantastic views. My GPS showed 4300 ft of climbing over the 100k so somehow I managed to miss the 700 ft of extra climbing that @mstateglfr did. No complaints. I did not need any bonus climbs after this ride, .

I also would love to hear what kind of road hazard would cause that damage!
