Festum Prophetae

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.

// Cogal

  1. Nice. Anyone in search of ideas can watch La Course en Tete to prepare. Suggest updating “Location” to Meensel-Kiezegem, Belgium — the marker in the Gulf of Guinea doesn’t look like a place with good riding.

  2. I’m thinking doing a short Cogal this year up Mount Hamilton. Any SF Bay Area Velominati interested in joining? If so, I’ll plan on it. But be warned – I will likely ride sweep. My climbing sucks. Even with a triple.
