When and where does this ride start? My 77 Nishiki is itching to stretch her legs.

there had been rides out of the Bicycle Stand shop in Long Beach, normally The Bicycle Stand hosts a monthly classic bike ride every last Saturday in Long Beach. But with Covid restrictions don’t know if they can sponsor or take the liability. But check out their store for sure and website or give them a call to confirm.

Thanks for reporting Manny, glad to see everyone. Sorry to hear about Bean Town, must have been terrible. Hope they get rebuilt properly and survive.

Thanks, I intend to check it this week. I have a vintage steel frame that is slightly tweaked and I need it straightened and hoping they can do it.

RE: Bean Town:

Hi all, hope you all are doing well. Although I haven't been able to ride with them, many folks are still keeping the Velo-Retro ride alive and well. Many of you will know we stop at the 17 mile mark at the Bean Town Cafe and Bakery in Sierra Madre for some scrumptious pastries, food, and conversation. We also get to show our bikes and talk to the many passersby along that busy part of town.

I recently found out that Bean Town suffered an accident Monday morning August 10, 2020 when a car somehow backed out of a parking stall 3 businesses down, accelerated, did a U-turn and jumped the curb and backed into the front entrance of the Cafe, taking with it an outdoor table and mowing down chairs and their gumball machine. The car destroyed the front entrance and adjacent glass windows. Thankfully no one was hurt. The shop was red-tagged and being rebuild since September. Their Facebook page suggests good progress and a reopening soon, likely another month or two.



So progress.

often very descriptive.

Wish I could have been there, but I had a band rehearsal, and it was at my house, so I kinda had to be there. Got new tires, a new chain, and new brake pads on the Centurion (still have most of the rust, though), looking forward to taking it out with the group next month. Today would've been a great day for a ride.
