    I hope nothing but Walmart BSOs were used in the construction of that minarette.

    If you really concentrate, you'll be able to see some future Cannondales in that obelisk...

    PS.

    Why do I suddenly feel obliged to kneel and face the east?

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    I'm facing east right now, watching the sun come up over the lake.
    This evening I'll face east and watch the moon come up over the lake.

    So are you a Shiite-ey rider or a Sunni-weather rider? Do you dismount 5x/day and stretch?

    First of all, it's actutally an obelisk, not a minaret

    Second of all, it was sponsored by Nissan:

    If anybody is going to worship there, it seems like a less suitable spot for cyclists than for motorists whose "Get that bike off my road!" prayers were apparently answered...

    Perhaps GM will sponsor erection of these in every town across the land?

    Cool! Thanks for the link and saving me the keyboard time correcting the OP's misnomer.
