Learning to ride a bike
Today we witnessed an unique sporting event, at least for these parts. It was the Joe Martin Stage race, a bicycle race, and we spent the better part of our sunday in awe of these athletes. Moving at speeds often faster than 35 mph and around turns of greater than 90 degrees these competitors rode shoulder to shoulder and wheel to wheel, some for more than 90 minutes, it was impressive. And since I really don't know much about the sport I'm going to post some pics and let you see for yourself.
