Group DescriptionThis is a group about the Rivendell Blériot bicycle
Louis Blériot was born in Cambrai, France on July 1, 1872, and studied engineering in Paris. He was an inventor, an aircraft designer, and a pilot. He is best known for his flight over the English Channel on July 25, 1909, the world's first flight over a large body of water in a heavier-than-air craft.
It also happens that Rivendell Bicycle Works makes a bicycle named after Blériot. This group is for an annual ride in which Blériot owners ride their bicycles over a large body of water, take photos, and stick 'em on Flickr.
But you have to ride on July 25... or as close to it as possible.
Better yet, ya know what? Just post some shots of your beautiful bike, and we'll call it good. Cool?
