Gordon Lyon Ride


Sunday after Ore 2 Shore, Matt Calcaterra of Lakeshore Bike once again organized the Gordon Lyon Memorial Ride. Lyon was a older gentleman from the Marquette area who fixed bikes for neighborhood kids, and loved old bikes. He befriended Matt several years ago, but died before he was able to realize his dream of riding his bike around the Marquette city bike path loop. This year was the 7th year of the ride. I expected a dozen or so rides, but there must've been 40 or more all on cruiser bikes. It was an awesome bookend to the weekend. I rode the Pit Bike.

I like that bike in the photo, although the tilt on that saddle (a Brooks? Selle Italia?) seems a bit extreme.
