Two-Wheeled Excitement

Today was a good day to be a cyclist.

This morning Gwen and I went for a nice bike ride. It wasn’t too easy, and it wasn’t too hard. It was, as it were, a Goldilocks ride. Afterward we headed down to Thousand Oaks, where we caught the final stage of the Tour of California. We ended up standing in the middle of the figure-eight shaped closing circuit, with a clear view of the finish. Because of the shape of the course, the riders passed us ten times. After the race was over, a number of them stopped right in front of where we were to congratulate each other. We really couldn’t have asked for a better spot to watch it from.
