Hey, we're on the course!

When you drive through a town that you once raced in, do you make note of when you're on the course??

I find that most Roadies will say something about it.

I saw Cuba Gooding in "Radio" on TV tonight and remembered that they filmed it on main street in Walterboro SC where they had the S.C. Heritage Tour.
I couldn't help but say "Hey, they're on the course!"

Here in the States, we sprint for city limit signs when out for a spin with friends.

In Belgium they sprint for old finish lines through every town we'd pass. That was the coolest thing ever. I mean, literally 1000's of imaginary lines all over that country and the guys would of course then have a story to how they were sprinting for 14th against some old Tour rider in '88, when all of the sudden...
