Gypsy Run 5 photos

What an awesome ride. Including the ride up and back I did around 750 miles in 3 days all over northeast Pennsylvania. Thanks to Walter from Kickstart cycle Supply for putting on this awesome event. Tons of cool bikes and cool people. Special thanks to Sean and his brother for navigating the first day and to Chris and Matt for sticking with me on the ride back while I sorted out some electrical bugs.

Sean’s brother (I feel shitty – totally forgot the dude’s name) had this sweet swingarm shovel that I just fell in love with. So many awesome people – Mike from 47 Industries (cracked his frame and welded it in the diner parking lot! took best roadside repair!), Jd with his longfork shovel that took best of show, Michael of The World is Flat who is taking by far some of the best cycle photos, Chris who rode down from Vancouver only to have his engine blow up as he rolled into Jersey … too many people to mention.

I ended up taking the award for “rolling deathtrap” for having the bike that looks like it should fall apart but does every last mile of the run. I’m honored. GR6 isn’t close enough. Thanks for getting me so stoked on bikes.

all packed.
