Friday Photo - Turkey Bike Rotisserie

Ride at a steady pace and the turkey will cook evenly
I apologize for being a day late with this one, but keep it in mind for next Thanksgiving. The photo comes from a website called TJ's Performance. He came up with this design for a show on the Food Network called "Ham on the Street." This particular episode was called "Ham on Turkey."

Friday Photo - Bicycle Sauna

Bicycle Sauna being towed
The folks at H3T Architects have come up with a portable sauna that can be towed by bicycle. They call it the Cyclosauna. It can accommodate up to four people. Apparently is has been a hit around Prague in the Czech Republic. I'm not sure what is going on in this photograph. What's the deal with those killer bees in the background?

Friday Photo - Major Taylor

Major Taylor shaking hands with an opponent before a race in Paris
The Major Taylor Velodrome in Indianapolis is named after Marshall Taylor. He was born in Indy in 1878. An African-American, his father fought in the Civil War and his grandfather had been a slave. Taylor's father worked for a wealthy Indianapolis family, who had a son about the same age as Marshall. They gave him his first bicycle when he was twelve, and he quickly learned to do some trick riding. This landed him a job with a local bike shop, who paid him to perform tricks in front of their store. He wore a military uniform, which is how he got the nickname Major.

Major Taylor won a 75 mile road race in central Indiana when he was 16. Due to racial barriers in Indiana, he soon moved to Massachusetts, where the population was more tolerant. In 1899 he became the first African-American world champion when he won the one mile race (Black Canadian boxer George Dixon had become world champion in 1890).

After his victory, Taylor was offered a large sum of money to race in Europe, but he turned it down because he would not race on Sunday. The promoters reworked the schedule so there was no Sunday racing, and Taylor agreed to race. In place of the racism he faced in America, he was hailed as a hero in Europe, especially in France. Major Taylor retired from bike racing in 1910. Life after racing was not kind to him. He made over $25,000 per year at the height of his career, but died penniless in 1932.

Pedicabs in Indianapolis

Indy Pedicab driver waiting for a fare
I learn something new every day. Living in Greenwood, I had no idea there were two pedicab companies operating in downtown Indianapolis. There is Indy Pedicabs and Circle City Pedicabs. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on either one, but Circle City Pedicabs operates in the mile square downtown, and a ride anywhere there is only $5. They can take 2 or 3 people and there is a 600 pound limit. It's a good thing for the drivers that Indianapolis is flat.

Friday Photo - Cycling in Egypt

Start of the 2015 Cairo to Cape Town Tour (Photo courtesy of Egyptian Streets)
This week's photo shows the start of the 2015 Cairo to Cape Town bicycle tour. The tour took 121 days and crossed 10 countries (Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa). According to the organizer, Africa is relatively safe, although she did admit that they had to be careful about bandits in parts of northern Kenya, as well as elephants in Botswana and Zambia. The tour has rest days in places like Khartoum, Addis Ababa, and Nairobi. Participants also visit sites like Victoria Falls. If you have ever seen Niagara Falls, Victoria Falls is twice as wide and twice as tall.

The event is put on by the TDA Global Cycling, which calls the event "Tour d'Afrique," The 2016 edition will run from January 15 to May 14. Cost for the entire event is just under $16,000. You can also do portions of the tour, which cost between $1,400 and $3,550.
