The Sweet Spot in Time
Just got back from The Touring Ride in Rural Indiana, a fine week-long ramble through quiet hills, peaceful valleys and endless cornfields. One of the sweetest moments, one which Crosschain would have dearly loved, was watching the fllm "Breaking Away" the night before we visited Bloomington, a lovely university town where the entire movie was filmed.
The next day, we visited the "Little 500" track, the site the climax event of the film and stopped by a number of other locations that were part of this wonderful move. Following Dave Stoeller's wheel was a sweet spot in time that brought me back to my youth.
It was delightful meeting our own Monoborracho. Sadly, he had to leave the trip early for personal reasons. Hope all is well with him and that we will see him down the road soon.
