Sunday, April 11, eight riders gathered in Brooklyn for Scott
Demel’s BK Pavé ride.
The ride is held, in the words of Scott, “in Commiseration
and Celebration of Paris Roubaix.” Paris-Roubaix,
a race considered the “Queen of the Classics,” features
numerous sections of cobble stones (pavé). BK Pavé seeks
out the great pave sections of Brooklyn. The ride ends at the Water
Street Bar with a same-day viewing of the Paris-Roubaix race on
The sky spat droplets now and then bit but real rain never arrived.
Each rider had different ideas on what to ride over the cobble stones.
At a stop to fix a flat we examined the various bicycles present.
