    Planet Carolyn..Cool place....you should visit!
    Part of our get away included getting to see the Tour of California on Saturday! I am sorry now that I refused to take my camera along on that particular adventure! (I know stupid stupid stupid!)........But it was very cool to see all the riders taking a turn at 30 miles an hour............We saw Lance Armstrong......He wasn't racing but he was in one of the lead cars.....very cool....Then another lead car threw a long sleeved T-Shirt out of the window at the crowd.....and guess who got it?..........ME....happy birthday to me!!! It has the tour logo on the front and STAFF in big letters on the back....and just happened to be my exact size! Any way just wanted to share a bit more of my adventures.Sorry no pics....still kicking myself for that one!......It was so cool!

    Thanks for listening! : )

    Right place right time usually seems to happen either when you are looking the other way or you ain't got your camera :er: :x

    I have seen quite a few bike races here in Toronto, and out side the city. They are amazing to see. I would love to see the tour de France.
    I have been a volunteer at a few races, where you stand at entrances to driveways, so that nobody exits as the cyclist are zipping by. Once the 200 or so fly by, ya have to hop in your car and get to the next town before they do. They usually go by within 30 second, and your back in your car again.

    Must be something in the water in the US.
    Two of the greatest cyclists ever both have near death experiences, Gerg with his shooting accident and Lance with the Big C, then go on to win The Tour De France. LEGENDS
