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.

The Pergamon Altar
A large 2nd century BC Greek temple excavated by German archaeologists in 1878 to 1886 in Pergamon, on the West coast of Turkey. Fragments were brought to Berlin where a temple replica was built and opened in its namesake museum in 1930. It's an impressive exhibit, followed by something from 110 miles south and 300 years later.
