Copake bike auction

COPAKE -If you missed the Saturday auction in Copake you missed a chance to own an antique "high-wheeler" bicycle

The 22nd annual antique and classic bicycle auction had thirty old-style bicycles on up for the highest bidder. 50 other antique bikes were also on sale.

Part of the weekend included a 9-mile tour of the town on antique bicycles, sort of a parade for people who cared to come out and take a look at the riders go by.

Organizers say these basic machines have been critical in the history of transportation.  Plans are underway to publish a brochure to promote bicycling in Copake.
