And the Prophet handed down the New Vestement.

Festum Prophetae

by / / 2 posts

The annual international Cogal will be held each year on the birthday of The Prophet, Eddy Merckx – June 17. Community members will have the choice to observe this in their own way; honor him by riding at the front all day, or head out alone to meet the Man with the Hammer with just a bit of food in the jersey and water in the bidon.

We also encourage community members to organize Cogals on the day of, if possible, or on the nearest weekend day. However you choose to observe Festum Prophetae, make sure you do with with dignity and respect.

Vive la Vie Velominatus.

  1. So, what’s everyone got planned for this one? We’re planning on marking this most special of special days in a very special way.

    A dusk until dawn ride, right through the night. What can possibly go wrong……….

    I went out and paid homage to the prophet by getting the snot kicked out of me for about two hours in 90+ degree heat with f*cking brutal headwinds and hills the entire way. Since it was so hot I left the wool jersey in the closet and opted instead for my steel Tommasini and old school gearing that pretty much broke my legs. As I write this, I am sitting beneath my framed wool Molteni jersey, signed by The Man himself back in the day in Denver, at the Velo Swap.
