Rivendell/Bridgestone Owners’ Bunch Ride:

Sunday, June 6, meet at noon at Peninsula Park Rose Garden (N. Ainsworth between Albina and Commercial).

Bring your best steel, lugs, shellacked grips and twine-wrapped bars and show them off!

Urban ride at super-mellow pace, enjoying the best of eastside roses in bloom.
Ride concludes at an inner-eastside pub so bring money for beer and eats.

Carbon-fiber bikes will be put out of their misery on sight.
