The weather despite being awful and muggy in the morning, turned out to be a bit warm (especially for wearing wool), but surprisingly fine.
I met a lot of kindred spirits, and a good time was had by all. Lots of pedestrians, especially on Newbury street wanted to know "what are you riding for?" I tried to answer a couple of them with an explanation about vintage bikes and vintage clothes and british three speed clubs, but I finally gave up and started saying "for fun!"
This bike has an old lamp which burned oil to create a headlight
This woman won the "best dressed lass" competition. I spoke to her and she had taken in a thrift store suit to give it a great nipped waist. I wish I was such an able seamstress.
Check out this cool helmet cover, made from stretchy mesh with some feather attachments. Weak rum toddy in the thermos- her basket had a great cover too.
