Looking for a group interested in riding older bike. I'm into riding older british bikes, internal hubs to 10 speed stuff.
anyone out there on the east coast presently doing same or would like to do same as a group. Maybe a tour.

Not crazy just like the classics

Gary,

These cats aren't on the east coast, but maybe you can draw some inspiration from them or even make their tour:

Thanks for the reply.

I happend upon their site last month.
Between E mails and a few phone calls this group got me interested into trying somethin like this on the east coast.

another neat site is ABCE.com  (all british cycling event) also out in Minnesota. Neat site good pictures

A british site (tin can ten.com) deals with internal hub bikes and a ten mile time trail. Neat site good pictures.

Again thanks your interest.

You've probably already found them, but I'll recommend Classic Rendezvous ( www.classicrendezvous.com ) anyway.  They have a very active email list and even though they try to limit discussion on the list itself to lightweights (classic racing bikes), there are a number of members who also enjoy classic British roadsters.  They've also done British bike pub crawls in Philadelphia, I think.
