It's either that or somewhere on W. Grand Blvd. Being an eastsider and not knowing the route in advance, I was kind of lost at this point.....

betterhalf and I have already decided we're going to participate in the 9th Annual Tour de Troit. It looked like such fun!

In my younger days, I did a Century ride. I loved that.

Thank you for sharing your photos.

Awesome D-Day. great job to all the fudgies who are and have been involved with this for a long time. really may be the best detroit thing out there.

If it wasn't so damn close to the marathon, I would do it next year...

Well, maybe I'll skip the marathon and come into town for this instead.

Good call....my guess is that there's a lot more alcohol consumption involved with the TdT.

what...no Dequindre Cut?

Pictures look great. Wish I could've carved out some time for that.
Make no new female acquaintances; avoid soirees; call on old friends occasionally. Write good letters to absent friends, and attend church once each Sunday.
