Off to the Races!

Phoenixville hosted its first bike race–part of the Chesco Grand Prix–this past Saturday, and K and I toddled down to Bridge and Main Street, folding chairs in tow, to snag a prime viewing spot. With temperatures in the high 90s most of the day we left Pablo home dozing in front of the fan. A wheezing, panting pug is not a pretty sight. The premier pro race (the last of nine races) went for two hours, as the cyclists zipped around town in a 1.3 mile loop thirty-two times. One hundred entrants started and, by my count, less than twenty finished. Did I mention the temps were in the 90s?

Here they come….

And there they go…
