My folks have been here for a few days. And the Amgen Tour of California was also here today. The combination worked well, because my dad’s photos are so much better than mine. Alex was going to stay in school (first time she would have missed the race), but during first period she sent Steve a text, asking him to come get her. Which made me happy, because it wouldn’t have been the same without her.
The bikes (the top two are mine, the rest in this post are Dad’s).
Steve and Dad with their matching U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame Hats.
The woman I would like to trade places with for a day. Fantasy job, ride a motorcycle, with a radio, for a major bike ride. How cool is that?
And finally, the race. The rider in the red and blue (on the red bike), with the white glasses (the cute one) is Alex’s favorite rider this year, Andy Schleck. Good job Grandpa!
