This summer… Presented by Hardwood Softgoods, SideShow Cycles… the lovely people behind Velo Vermont Vintage bring you Knobby tires, rigid forks, V-Brakes and neon clothing!
Vermont’s First Ever Vintage Mountain Bike Rally and Klunker Jam 2016!
Come one, come all, Sunday August 14th to sanctify the shred. Located at the RIPM trail network in Plainfield, Vermont, with Velo Vermont and Onion River Sports!
RIPM Trails in Plainfield/Marshfield, 362 Taylor Farm Road, Plainfield, VT. Meet at 4pm for some Vintage Mountain Bike group rides, bike geeking, klunker racing etc!
We want you to bring out the old steel 26″ Mountain bike you’ve got hanging around the garage/basement and come for a ride with us that’s going to throw you back in time! Big time!
Proflex stems, gumwall 26″ Smoke and Darts, rigid forks vs. Judys, Bring your neon yellow – purple jerseys, big-ass sunglasses, helmets (!) and whatever you think someone 20 years ago thought was cool…. We’ll do Vintage Mountain Bike Group Rides, chill and grill, skid competitions, and Klunker re-pack races down the fire road.
- any 26″ Mountain bike older than Y2K!
- Single speed and Coaster brakes more than welcome!
- No disc brakes (unless they’re really cool).
- Elastamer suspension forks, or rigid frigid!
- gumwall tires (Dart and Smoke, of course)
- Spandex, epic sunglasses, neon colors welcome!
Leaving from 362 Taylor Farm Road (Park along the road if there’s not enough room) we will head out for a couple group rides on classic bikes, ‘interesting’ single track, and then start a Repack race down a good old fire road! Heats of 3 or 4 will go off at a time, for bragging rights, and some sweet SWAG! We won’t make any promises but there might just be a skid competition happening!
We hope to see you there. Bring what you got, this an all-bikes-welcome event! (PS We might just have enough Klunkers for everyone!)
