Dirty Sundays is collaborating with the historic Holbrooke Hotel in Grass Valley, CA to organize a new exciting bicycle event that reflects the lifestyle and history of riding bikes in our community and around the world.
The event will dive into the past and share the evolution of bicycles with an exhibition of 40 bikes from different decades, all the way to modern hand-built custom bikes. There will be Vendors with bicycle-related artwork like jewelry, paintings, photography, etc.
Tom Ritchey and other industry legends will be attending and Tom himself will give a speech about the book of his mentor and friend, Jobst Brand. On Saturday and Sunday mornings there will be group rides that will take you around this scenic Victorian town and explore the past relics of Grass Valley’s rich mining history.
There will also be a swap meet outside with vintage and modern parts where you can possibly make some great deals!
Reel23Films will be filming during the whole event and preserve all the memories in a short video.
And of course, the Holbrooke Hotel will be offering awesome food and drinks in the oldest, continuously operating Hotel in California, and don’t miss the After-Party at the Iron Door bar downstairs!

I had this bike built in 2016 by Cameron Falconer (@coffeeandeggs), and the fork built in 2020 by Waterford. A good, fast, classic all-rounder, perfect for everything from a gravel century to a cyclocross race, with all manner of daily riding in between. Ridden well with some wear to the finish, but straight with no dents. Selling this because I simply have too many gravel-ish drop bar bikes. Details: Light but sensible tubing, True Temper mix, TIG welded. Fender eyelets and three bottle mounts. Waterford brazed fork with mid-fork rack and fender eyelets, painted to match.
