Tour de Grove

.
Tour de Grove 5

Bicycle racing isn't as popular in the US as Europe but it's around. Particularly on weekends, it is common to see packs of cyclists zooming by on the streets clad in brightly colored spandex. (I wouldn't wear spandex unless it made me invisible.) The Tour de Grove took place in the eponymous neighborhood a week ago in cold rain. Tough guys.

Good to see cycling races being held. In the UK it's almost impossible to get roads closed for anything other than top professional races. In Belgium it's almost part of the constitution that there will be a cycling race at least once a week in a town!
