This is an announcement from the folks over at the United States Classic Racing Association (USCRA), and looks like it could be really fun. Not a race, but just a fun ride (and possibly camping) in the Catskills region of NY State.
Save the Date, Aug 13
2nd annual Covered Bridge Vintage Tour in Up State NY/Catskills. Spend the day on the nice twisties of Delaware and Otsego Counties. This is not a “ride in a line” event, but similar to the giro with a route sheet, but not competitive. Last year Guys seemed to find their own group with similar riding styles.
The route will be different this year, though there will be short times using the same as last year, but going the other way. We will NOT have the bridges as the focus. Curvey Roads will be!
Ride starts and ends in Walton NY. Bikes need to be at least 30 years old but there is no limit on displacement. Last year 30 bikes attended, from vintage Hondas, Several very nice BMW’s, Triumphs, a Guzzi Falcone, a pair of mint Nortons, a Zundapp 100 and the two ugliest Moto Guzzi Eldos I have ever seen. The plates read “Patina” and ” Tetanus”. Even an Ossa Firefly. I would love it if 50 bikes show up.
The event is free, but particiapants are welcome to contribute towards the BBQ and gas for the chase truck.
More details will be posted closer to the date, or call Jack Cole for info–607-865- seven seven one 4
