Team ROMEO

Retired Old Men Eating OUT

Team ROMEO (Formerly Weekday Riders)

ABOUT US

Team Romeo started as an off-shoot of The Akron Bicycle Club.  (Visit ABC's web site.)

Every summer some of us would get together and ride one of two weeks on a long distance tours.

We have visited most of the states of the United States and up into Canada. (See a list of our tours of old.)

Team ROMEO now consists of a group of seasoned riders that ride together all over, not just to lunch on Teusdays.  Check out TOURS in menu to see where we have been.

Top Banner Picture is largest lunch ride of 2010, 16 riders.

Top Right Picture right was taken at the Adventure Cycling Offices in Missoula, MT.  The picture was published in their monthly magazine.  The group stopped on one part of the Lewis & Clark Tour.  Adventure Cycling takes pictures of all cyclist who come through there and stop.

Club Jersey was designed by Barb Schlueter, Tom's wife.

The Botzum Trail head is 0.3 miles south of the intersection of Riverview Road and Bath Road in the CVNP. Usually these rides are 30-35 miles in length, but there are always exceptions. The trail head is expansive, there is plenty of parking, I have never seen this lot full.  MAP
