Ride in the Park with Eddy Merckx Oct 24, 2009

I was kinda bummed when I heard the Cannibal was at Interbike this year and I missed out. He was there the year before, but was swarmed the whole time making it impossible to meet him. Maybe this event will present an opportunity to shake his hand?

$100 is kind of steep and I wonder what bikes they’re supplying. If they’re the new EM models, it’d be worth it. I’m thinking more than likely they won’t be. Regardless, I’m gonna show up and see if he’ll sign my MXLeader!

Liam at Cyclosity gave me the heads up on this one. Thanks man!

  • Wish I could be there. I don’t think I’ve seen a photo of Merckx on a bike very recently at all. Maybe he’ll pull the pedicab trick.

    I’m down, it’s kinda weird to pay to ride with one of everybody’s hero but when is the next time we will have this opportunity. I’m bringing a camera and a helmet and my wallet.

    Oh you totally have to get one of your bikes signed, John. Get one of those Sharpies meant for labeling laboratory glass, that way it’ll keep.
