Fun Ride, August 1966



The group starting out on the ride. The only person we can identify in this picture is the second in line, at the center of the picture, Paul Robinson. The very young rider who is first in line is a clue that this is a fun ride, not a long distance or training ride.

The two riders at the right of the picture, from left to right, are Neil Johnson and Tom Woods.

Neil Johnson, repairing a flat tire. Hey you modern punks, check out the sew-ups!

Fred Brockman, who we believe is wearing a Modesto Roadmen T-shirt.

As we often did, we are taking a break at a local store along the way for soft drinks and snacks. At the bottom left is Jeff Cowdrey, wearing the then-popular in the club red beret, checking out a bike. In the back, near the center, drinking from a water bottle, is Fred Brockman. Some of the other people look familiar, but we have yet to associate them with a name.
