2016 Tour of Somerville

Well, once again I made my annual Memorial Day visit to watch the tour of Somerville Bicycle Races in Somerville New Jersey.

It was a little different this year as we moved from Bridgewater to Garwood last summer.  So my usual 10 to 15 minute drive is now about 45 minutes but it is a nice ride.

It turned out to be a great day weather wise as the predicted rain showers ender early in the morning and the day was dry.  There was not a big crowd there this year so I went to the finish line to watch one of the early races.

Here is a video of the racers going by.

What is interesting is the pack of riders actually create their own mini "jet stream" of wind!
