The George Street Bike Challenge

Can you do this?

Uphill time trial, Sunday, July 26, 2009. See how fast you can pedal up this two-block quad-buster in downtown Worcester, Massachusetts, that was a training ground for 1899 world champion, Major Taylor. You probably recall my late December ’08 post on him.

Presidential Inauguration 2009

At this point., it looks like I will attend President-elect Obama’s Inauguration, January 20, 2009. I won’t have a prime seat and I do  not expect to attend any of the Inaugural Balls. I’ll find a vantage point near the Capitol and do my best to get a good parade spot.

I lived in Northern Virginia for 10 years ['84 ~ '94] and attended 2 presidential inaugurations. Given the historical significance of this inauguration, I am blessed to be able to go to Washington, DC again. I’ll do my best to capture a few photo keepers.

For this trip, the cycles will remain at home. I’ll blog and upload photographs if possible.
