Gyro and I rode out to Spencerport this morning and hung out along the canal for a while. There is a long stream of cyclists and they're coming your way. http://www.ptny.org/canaltour/index.shtml
Big riders and small riders, short riders and tall riders, and they are all smiling and having a great time. There were tandem recumbents and LWB recumbents and SWB recumbents, but mostly there were those funny bikes that people sit way up on top of.
We visited with several riders as they took rest breaks and each and every one that we spoke with was having the time of their lives.
Once they learned that we were locals they hit us with a barrage of questions. (Where's a good place for lunch?) or (How far is it to.....?) and (How do I get to .....?) was a big one.
We visited with a gent from California for a long while. There were riders from France and Mexico.
I thought I was going to be bored to tears just watching a bunch of bikes ride by but instead, just as Gyro said we would, I had a good time.
So get ready buddy 'cause here they come!!!!
