So why there? is there a Coppi connection with that area? or is it just an excuse for bike riding and bike viewing? and as far as beer goes, we sure do miss Lake Louie Warped Speed! we were just reminiscing about how good it is at christmas time.

Man, I wish i knew about this kind of thing last time we lived in Mad-town! I guess I wasn't linked in to the culture back then. AND my only bikewas steel, but it was a 1993 which was 12-18 years old at the time!

Atta boy, that's the spirit!

This is a no-brainer, bellweather, watershed moment. Simply not in the cards for me and I will be kicking myself from now on for missing it.

Yep. We were disconnected from The World.
You don't get that lucky very often.

I see @elguicho has registered (the guy in the Guatemala jersey).
I also heard that @bibliobob will be in the area. From California.

Now, we must work on Les @conspiratemus. Hamilton, Ontario.

I also see 3 bikes registered from AZ. And this is just December.

I'm for sure bringing my older Colnago Master, not quite sure about what else; I guess it all depends on what I buy between now and then Oh, and Cinelli cork tape too

Itís not a commercial enterprise. PM me your email and Iíll fix it for you. As far as donations, Iíll see about that mechanism; believe me, it loses money. PM anyone who went to Bartali and ask them about value. Incredible. Having you there will only make it better.

I am really considering this, only 5-6 hours well closer to 7 the way Morticia and I meander. Do lots of guys camp when they do these things or should I start looking at hotels now?

Man! It's not likely that I'll be in any riding shape, but I will try and parachute in for at least a day to say hello to everyone. IAB puts on an event better than anyone, and the Centenario Bartali was as good as it gets (absent the swap meet and cast of vintage thousands at Eroica). No better place for vintage cameraderie, though, anywhere on the planet.

Hope to see you all there....

I'm booked at the Dairyland Motel in Mineral Point, 608-987-3141 (Mark or Virginia). You can mention Rob Powell if you'd like. Most reasonable for comfort.

There is a "budget" motel that is basically very old, the Travelers Inn, cheap, and a much higher-priced one, the Quality Inn (a Choice hotel, I think).

Dave is also looking at a lodge in Barneveld, the Deer Valley Lodge.

Dodgeville also has a number of places, a nice Super 8, and other places.

Rural-wise, I think rccardr and Chrome Molly shared a BnB right out in the same area, a farmhouse.

Out-of-season rates should apply at the Brew Pub, which has room upstairs, and the Walker House, which is an early 1800's inn in Mineral Point (an experience in itself)

The Mineral Springs guest house in Mineral Point is outstanding, should have out of season rates. It's a fully equipped house, 4 bedrooms, and is like living in your own home. We really liked it for the Dairyland Dare, but rates vary. Rosie may negotiate the rates for you for 2-3 days, but remember, it's a 4-bedroom, full kitchen, fire pit, TV's everywhere, linens, towels, laundry, basically her house.

There is camping at Yellowstone Lake (state-run) and Governor Dodge (state-run). There are private campgrounds in the area, as well, if not right near Hollandale. Hollandale is a good place to buy cheese, has a store with an in-house butcher, etc.

As far as the donation/support, I'll get in touch with Dave about getting that set up. This is sort of a private situation with the public invited, so I'm not sure how he does it.

Great to see @bibliobob on the thread. He is an ace builder, but very busy working for The Man in California...…. His lovely wife can outride most of us.

Now to figure out an interesting fact about the bikes I want to bring......

Who lives in the area or has ridden there? Should one plan on a triple or will a 12-26ish with a 42/53 be sufficient?

Trina, the hills in that area are steep and abrupt. I've ridden there with a 50/34 compact and a 13-28 freewheel, but am more comfortable with a 34 cog in the back for the really steepy ones. Nothing shameful about a triple, either.

My general rule is, go for a 1:1 small ring/rear cog combination. Worst case is you won't have to use it.

I've experienced the area a few times. As described above, its a magical area for road cycling.

IAB's selection of routes are always super, though I don't think there is any bad route. RobbiTunes is the ultimate tour guide and knowledge bank of the territory. Mister witty hysterical and if you wish will recite non-stop historic facts.

Road conditions are excellent. Nominal to no vehicle traffic. Beautiful scenery.

Expect steep but shorter climbs, some roller coaster, rewarding fast winders. Choose your weapon to attack climbs and judgement in strength conditioning. I've rode in a variety of bikes -modern and vintage, some 'wrongly' geared high, single chainring too. The later NOT recommended but again, its a C&V party.

This time around, I'm planning to ride vintage with light build wheels with gearing for wall climbing low to very tall high speed. Woohoo!

Whilst I am in the vicinity should I make time for a side trip to Yellow Jersey or is all the good stuff in the back room? I know the Int Crane Foundation is likely too far away but any other cool stuff I should consider checking out in the area or along the way?

Yellow Jersey is worth the trip, about an hour away. I suspect there will be a gaggle of us organizing an outing.
