Reaching

You know, driving out ahead of cyclists for 5-6 hours is draining.  So sometimes you need a sandwich.

That’s Bobbie in the background, waiting for the breakaway group of six that was a few minutes ahead of the peleton.  A true artist in her own right, making amazing baked creations.

And if you have never had the chance to see a professional cycling race, you would be absolutely amazed at the amount of support vehicles involved.  Even some 20-30 minutes before the lead racers pass by, vehicles are already passing.  Their purpose?  Who knows.
