The Washington Area Bicyclist Association's 13 Colonies and 50 States tour went off today.
No, I didn't take part. I was dutifully doing household chores--because sometimes I'm not smart enough to dump the chores and get out and play.
But one bright spot among the checkbook-balancing and dusting? Watching the riders passing by my home. It was fun to cheer them on from my window. I hope they got a charge out of it: I know I did. Maybe next year I leave the housework for a day...
Congrats to all those who got out for a challenging ride!
