The Elkhorn Classic

It turns out a legitimate (and important) bicycle race was taking place in Baker City during my recovery day today.

Pictured here are some of the competitors in the men's division. I took this photo as they were completing their first lap.

I realize that I'm not in good enough shape to race competitively, so you might say this is just sour grapes, but think about it: at the end of a bicycle RACE all you get is the names of the people who won, while with a cross-country bicycle TOUR (i.e. like mine) you get pictures from many different states, funny stories, and unique observations that (as a practical matter) can only result from entire days without any human contact :)
