Today is 4th of July: the day when americans declared independence from the british empire. United States of America celebrates 235 years of life. What a young country, if you compare with my nice and old Europe (Portugal was founded in 868 but the conventional date for the independence is 1139) 🙂
What people do on this holiday? Fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies. Cool!
Well, my first 4th of July wasn’t quite like that. I didn’t saw the fireworks, but we have had a lot of storms and lightnings these days (this is really a funny and strange weather!) hehe.
So, what I did? The RVA Critical Mass (Fun Community Bike Ride) created a event with the topic ‘Put the fun between your legs’ 😉 The route was very nice, in the way that we could hit 3 main areas from Richmond. We ended in the river (north side): nice and quite! Just my bike, friends and nature!..
