61.0 Miles. We got up EARLY and drove the day’s 18.6 mile time trial course. Tough damn climb in the middle and if the cyclists had ever stuck their heads up while competing they would have seen some beautiful views. Then again maybe not, as it got cloudy and then rainy by the time they went out.
We went to the start area and watch a half dozen of the 140 odd riders start their TT. We then headed into downtown to the finish. We had lunch at a place called Harvest Moon Cafe, mmmmmm. Brian’s Local Eating Tip #27: The food is great at any place that has the words Moon & Cafe in it. When the rain really started coming down we snuck up to the back roof of the restaurant and hung out with several others under their umbrella-ed tables overlooking the finish line.
Later that evening (the rain had passed) we went to see a Rome Braves baseball game. I’ve got a whole wordy post about this experience that will come in the near future, so just hold your horses, OK?
