In this weeks #legendsofthecruiserclassic we feature what I like to consider the King & Queen of the Cruiser Classic. Since the beginning there has only been one man to attend every Cruiser Classic, one man who carefully crafted unique riding apparel for each event, one man who you can count on to get the crowd fired up; ladies and gentlemen, @baker__sj presents Masud Wiggins a true #legendsofthecruiserclassic Behind every great man there is always a great woman…Amada Rae is that woman. Amanda made several Cruiser Classic appearances always bringing good vibes and lots of energy. I’d like to think in some ways the Cruiser Classic brought these two together, we will see you two September 9th in Nevada City.
#tbt#klunkers, those crazy kids that shuttled those old 3 bar steel bikes to the top of Marin and sent it.
I don't always care for Italian made BMX bikes, but when I do the Cinelli MX-1 is pretty sweet. #cinelli#vintagebmx
In this week's #legendsofthecruiserclassic we feature @justinchuck Justin Kanner may have discovered the classic a little bit later than others, but that has not kept him from becoming a legend. At the 2010 #tahoecruiserclassic, dressed as Pee Wee Herman riding a tricked out Moto Cruiser with white tires and a god damn BBQ attached to the handlebars Justin became a hero on the trail. Riders would come around the corner and there would be Justin grilling up some #ballparkfranks. Well in 2011 he returned with the BBQ bike added a condiments bar and literally hundreds of hotdogs for the riders. At the end of the ride the poly bag that once contained hundreds of hotdogs now was just a satchel of hot dog flavored water...swipe Can't wait to see you June 16th Justin.
This week is double shot #legendsofthecruiserclassic @dcrummel is responsible for keeping the dream alive. After college many of the founding members were not taking the time to have the Cruiser Classic continue, but one man did not give up. After the dawn of the new millennium Dave resurrected the Classic. By 2004 attendance was back up and riders were begging for more. In 2010 he moved the event from Nevada City to Lake Tahoe which was an epic year for the #cruiserclassic. Now in 2018 Dave will be back in Nevada City on the Pioneer Trail where it all started. When you see him on the trail this year be sure to thank him or maybe have him shotgun a beer for all his hard work. This event would not be possible without him. Thanks Dave!
In this weeks #legendsofthecruiserclassic we feature Nick Ferracone The Godfather of the #cruiserclassic, the man who some say may very well be the illegitimate child of Charlie Kelly, the man who wanted to recreate the vibe of those original #klunkers from 1977. Nick talked Bob Seals of #cooltool and #boardbud fame to lone him a bus to get everyone up the hill. The rest I guess you will say is history. The Cruiser Classic team is looking forward to the return of Nick and his OG schwinn cruiser Big Red see you June 16th.
Its #throwbackthursday, and that means it’s time for #Legendsofthecruiserclassic presented by @baker__sj . Scott Slattery is one of OG classic participants. He was there in 1998, when we started this event and in 2011 some say he had the best moustache. Looking forward to seeing @slatdog157 back on his cruiser bike in 2018 on the Pioneer Trail.
#legendsofthecruiserclassic This week we feature a multi time participant. He was the beer tender in the #cooltool bus back in the day and he was a shirtless shredder on a klunker the year we were in Tahoe. See you June 16th Mr. Gowdy.
