Just a short post to say I’m headed to the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. This year it’s being held in Sacramento, California, from March 2-4. To those who aren’t familiar with this event, it’s the time when custom framebuilders emerge from their darkened, winter workshops all around the US, to showcase and flaunt their wares. And, it’s an opportunity for Joe Public to ogle some truly beautiful, creative pieces of functional art.
I’ll be covering the event for the UK’s Singletrack magazine, and posting on this blog too.
I plan to camp somewhere in Sacramento, unless anyone can offer me some floorspace (-; My hope is then to travel down to LA (and fly back to South America), in case anyone is up for a ride.
As for getting there, I’ll be carsharing west from Albuquerque, New Mexico, stopping off in Death Valley National Park for a few days of dirt touring en route. If anyone is headed to the show and can help out, please let me know!
Yeah, isn’t it cool! Fascinating place too, you would really like it.
I’d like to try and skype Lucas before heading off. Mum says he’s very chatty these days (-:
In the photo above it seems so quiet and peaceful. What the photo can’t show is the 30 (plus) mph wind Cass is riding into.
Thanks for the great trip, Cass.
Great photo here Cass… X
Excellent picture! Great to see you’re taking your time to cycle the America’s..
Yeah, I think I’m hooked on dirt road South West USA!
I’m wondering if you’ll make it to Ushuaia by Feb next year at this pace.., concidering how many amazing rides there are to find in SA
Yeah, too many rides everywhere!
I’ll be there, though… Maybe by March (-;
Maybe at the week-end if you’re online?
