What a weekend in Park City! The Tour of Utah (named as America’s Toughest Cycling Stage Race) went through our town twice. These guys are pros; many of them have raced the Tour de France. I’m glad to see that the United States in starting to recognize the intensity, athleticism, and drama displayed at a major cycling race. Thousands of “Utahns” came out to cheer on these boys. It’s FUN!
Which reminds me, I too am going on a “Tour.” I will be joining Jemison Cycling Tours for their 10th Anniversary Signature Trip through Girona, Spain, in September. So, as I try to “train” for this ride, I realize I can’t be too hard on myself. My 30 mile rides probably take as much outta me as these boys over 100 miles. A 46 year old GIRL –who was never much of a stellar athlete in the first place– just has to do her best. Lucky for me, my main task on this trip will be PHOTOGRAPHING the gorgeous scenery and the OTHER riders! So, when I cannot turn my pedals a single more round, I will just have to notice a fabulous thing that requires my immediate attention with my camera! Good excuse?
