We are all disappointed that once again the Eroica California weekend for this year has been canceled due to the uncertainties revolving around COVID mandates.

VeloCambria has decided to sponsor the “FAUX EROICA” WEEKEND to celebrate the beauty of vintage cycling, and to provide some guided rides to vintage cyclists who want to come up for the weekend anyway.
Ride along with Rick “The DeathStar” Denman and many other notable and champion cyclists of the past!
