Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Orpheus in the Pergamon
Here is a Roman mosaic floor showing a very buffed looking Orpheus charming a crow and a wolf with his lyre music.
It's interesting to know that the Roman Empire extended up here far to the north.
Roman iconography was very popular here on the C19th, and you see the styles used in buildings all over the city.
