Pretty cool sight on the road yesterday.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Pretty cool sight on the road yesterday.

I'm cycling on my usual route, and I see a family; a husband, wife, and son out. They're riding together at a very respectable clip (alot faster than a normal family ride). The kid was about 11 with one of those mini road bikes, and he seemed to know what he was doing. Since we are going opposite ways I didn't see them for awhile.

On my trip back I see the same guy cycling down the road, going a pretty decent speed. Then I noticed his wife sprinting to catch him, and pulling off at the last second. Out of no where the son popped out from his mother's perfect lead out, and passed his dad.

It was a pretty awesome sight; I think back to it and hope I see that kid someday on Versus.

That would have been pretty cool to see.

I hope to see that kid on a more mainstream channel than versus.
