Firehouse 50

On Saturday Curt along with Brian Bich, Kevin O’Connor, and David Thompson raced together in a team bike race. They rode 50 miles in under 2 hours which is about 28 miles per hour! That’s fast! To get a sensation of what that speed is like, stick your head out the window next time you drive 30 mph! Which is exactly what I did during their race! For the first time ever in my life I got to drive along the bikers during the entire race! SO MUCH FUN!!!! I took pictures out the window while David’s brother Brent did the driving! We had a blast following along taking pictures and ringing the cow bell! I think I’m now ready to ride on the back of a motorcycle to take pictures of the Tour de France! Ha!

    Cool that you got to be that close to the action! I really don’t get the whole team bike race concept, so you’ll have to walk me through it sometime.

    Sounds fun taking pictures while hanging out of the vehicle, I would have loved to have been there to see it:)

    carolyn-next time i see you we’ll have to talk about the whole concept. but from what Curt tries to tell me…being in a team is easier because you can get a draft from the person in front of you and they shield you from the wind. each person takes a turn at leading. when you are not leading technically you have a mini-break. so it’s really important that everyone stays aero and tucked in a straight line if possible. hopefully that helps.
