In "Gone With the Wind," a climax was the turning point of the Civil War; the Battle of Gettysburg. In it, many of Scarlett's childhood friends were killed in Cobb's Legion.
“Crowds formed at the depot, hoping for news from incoming trains, at the telegraph office, in front of the harried headquarters, before the locked doors of the newspapers…They all waited to hear the news that death had come to their homes. They expected death. They did not expect defeat.”
And, so, in the cycling world it is once again. A great event is in the early stages of unfolding. Links are here and here.
Let us pray it is not a defeat. I'd really LIKE to see another cyclist riding safely and legally on my way to work someday. Just one. I hope that isn't too ambitious.
Subject Matter Mostly it's about local transportation cycling, as it exists in the here and now. It's got a smattering of other gratuitous toy recreation thrown in to keep y'all a little off balance. For those that don't know me, toy recreation means English & Italian cars, aircraft - and downhill skiing.
