High Rolling

On my calendar for months, has been the Frederick Clustered Spires High Wheel Race.  One only four races of this kind in the world, I was immediately hooked.

Some riders dressed the part, some dressed in modern attire, some rode new versions of old bikes, and one rider rode an original bike from 1891.

We weren't able to stay until the end due to a birthday party for our neighbors, but no doubt learned a lot about this unique group of riders.

With the race sponsored by a local craft beer brewing company and with the start/finish line in front of the brewery; some major sacrifices were made on my part.  

Pale Ale or Season Rye beer?  Touch choices had to be made.
