Afternoon Team. Several of you asked this morning on a bike ride if we are going to have the Chuck de Melker Legacy Ride for Perry Point Fisher House this year. The answer is an enthusiastic YES!! We just don't know where yet. The public venues that have hosted us in the past are not accepting reservations for the scheduled date of September 19. Our next option is find a spot on private property to start and stop the ride and develop routes from there. Short of that we will hold a virtual ride. You can still donate directly to Fisher House Foundation in the name of the Perry Point Veterans at engage/fisherhouse.org/goto/perrypoint20. Please contact me with ideas. Million Thanks!!

Petals for Chuck...Evie De Melker’s Remembrance Ride for the late great Charles J. De Melker...Evie brought rose petals from Chuck’s funeral to be left on the NCR Trail, one of Chuck’s favorite rides, and National Park service decals and we enjoyed a picnic in Chuck’s honor in Glen Rock. Chuck blessed us with beautiful weather and only one flat! CSO will post its memorial ride for Chuck. Thank you Evie❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

We all remember the first time we did a lot of things...I call today’s ride my First Road Ride Memory Ride on which I was bitten by the road cycling bug. I was at a party on a Saturday night in late June when friend Carol told me she was training for the Seagull. I asked her what the Seagull was and she told me it was 100 mile ride in October. I (after 2 beers) said ‘well I can do that’. I had a hybrid but didn’t ride often and hadn’t ridden more than 15 or 20 miles. I popped out of bed at 7am on Sunday morning and jumped on my hybrid and went down Rt 924 and Rt 24 for a 22 mile out and back to the Edgewood Arsenal gate. Within 3 weeks I bought my first road bike from Bob Buchanan at Conte’s. I did the Seagull that year (total of 112 miles due to missed turn but that’s another long story.)Today I redid the ride and recalled many of the friends made, some lost, and wonderful rides, outings and parties CSO and Velo have had. I thought of my father who trained at Ft. Hoyle pre WWII when artillery was still horse drawn. Fortunately artillery was mechanized during his service in Europe.Today’s ride slightly longer since i moved 3 blocks to the north... ... See MoreSee Less

Wanted to give club members a shot first before I post in other areas.

For sale. $250. Kind of firm but we can talk.
Small single speed road bike. Has tire clearance for a skinny gravel type tire if wanted.

Small. I’m 5ft 6in. Probably good for 5ft 5in - 5ft 8in comfortably.

Fresh fizik bar tape. Specialized Taupe saddle. Kenda 28mm tires. Alex rims. Bottle cage holder. Look keo pedals. Super cool bike with the bull horn style handlebars.

Not sure the gearing but I’ve done the forge hill loop on it, and it was perfect ! For reference.

Really fun, awesome looking bike.

Reply to sender or text if you are interested.

We can set up a covid approved meet up.
