Today was "Labor Day", a national holiday. Traditionally, I have gone to watch the Tour of Basking Ridge criterium race so I thought it would be nice to continue this tradition on my first Labor Day back in the United States.
The "Tour" is based on a course of a 1.1 mile loop around the village of Basking Ridge that is repeated to log the required number of miles in each race. This year I decided to ride there from home and to arrive in time to watch the Pro, Category 1,2 and 3 race which would race a total of 25 miles.
