Women pass men in Philadelphia pro race For the first time ever, the women racers in the Liberty Classic passed the slower men. The two groups race on the same 14 mile course. The women have a shorter race and start when the men have raced half of a lap. The women have never caught up with the men. This time the women's breakaway caught them and Ina Teutenberg, who went on the win her third Liberty Classic, gave the men a hard time as they raced by the neutralized men's field.
We often travel to Philadelphia to watch the race and ride the Schuylkill River Trail. On the day of the race there is a fun ride that does one lap on the race course. This year we volunteered to be ride marshalls on Paul's Ride for Life.
Postings here have been few and far between lately. I spend most of my time on bike advocacy, updating the FABB blog much more frequently than posting here. Plus there have been some computer problems that have taken up way too much time. Hope to post more soon.
