    This is certainly--in no way--a "cheap" hobby. Have all the marathons had such poorly kept highways? You almost need an auxiliary crew--traveling by van--to keep you all supplied with tires, patches, water, porter potties, etc. I've never watched or been near any form of marathon in my life. Your photographic journal of events is my first of even having a clue as to what takes place. Even though I'm sitting here at my computer, I must admit sometimes I have been in a panic mode when I've seen the road conditions and some very dangerous disasters that were thankfully avoided. I haven't chewed off any fingernails or started to consume any alcoholic beverages so far; so I hope I make it to the end of the journey without doing either.
    BTW, Manfred, I'm originally from the beautiful Commonwealth of Virginia - "Dixie". As a disabled widow, my days are spent on my computer--traveling through the lens of fine photographers such as yourself. I look forward to viewing more of your lovely photos.

      For me the special charm of this kind of bicycle marathons consists in having no supporting team and no escort vehicles :-)))
      I am glad very much that you like my photos. Please, dear Sweet Caroline, come and view further!
