DDAY +1 is Bike Day

Almost seventy years ago, on June 6, 1944, the Allied invasion forces made a beach landing on Normandy, France. It started the end of  Nazi Germany's occupation of Europe and World War II the following year.
I salute the brave men and women who risked their lives in order to end the bloodiest battle in history.

Today, I witness a different kind of invasion: plenty of cyclists invading wedgewoods. This time, 20 or so cyclists coasted along the main road of Wedgewoods.

It's nice to know that cycling is gaining popularity
