Poster for the 1997 Tour de Graceada.

Posterfor the 1968 Tour de Graceada. Designed by Jeff Cowdrey. Poster provided by David Steffen.

This T-Shirt was the first Modesto Roadmen garment we had. Jeff Cowdrey designed the logo, figured out how to build a silk screening apparatus out of scrap lumber, a nylon stocking, and white glue. We got each member to donate a plain white T-shirt, David Steffen's mother dyed them with Ritt dye in her washing machine, and then Jeff silkscreened the design on the back with fabric paint. T-shirt provided by David Steffen.

This was a second generation Modesto Roadmen T-shirt. (We also had a jersey.)
