... to find out what would happen if they wrapped in the gears. I pulled over to tie and tuck them in; no issue but was at the end of the group as I needed to catch up. I also noticed that the sun was strong and the trail was hard to see the hazards as the early morning had the sun right in our eyes. Just as the pace was relaxed and rolling through the parks you heard a bang and saw someone crunch over the handle bars. Even though there was nothing you can do, it was painful to see ...

... cost of thousands of soldiers. Many strategic points – Ipres, Hill 60 – changed hands four and five times during the war. It was a war of attrition, a process of wearing down until somebody decided to go home. Germany blinked first.

This time we did the Ring once again, but farther. This time we went along the Ring all the way to a market. The Ring, which is beautiful, is a real treat to bike along.
