Randonneuring Bikes Catching On
The Gentleman has been seeing more and more Randonneur-type bicycles popping up here and there. It seems to be a growing trend. We couldn't be happier! At the Gentleman's local San Francisco bike shop, Box Dog Bikes, one of the owners Gabe designed and built up this great model. As he says, it's "Basically something between my Ebisu Rando bike and my [Rivendell] Atlantis." So for those Gentleman out there not quite willing to spend a small fortune on a Rivendell, this prototype could be a solution to your long-distance riding needs. The Gentleman envies Gabe's bicycle collection.
Randonneuring is non-competitive long distance group bike riding. When the demand is there, the Gentleman will lead a Gentleman Randonneur Army.
