While Nancy is compiling a shortlist of desirable rides over at blogscrement , the annual Cirque du Cyclisme classic bicycle event was held over the weekend, in the part of North America that wasn't flooding, but was very hot.
There's a whole heap of pictures turning up on flickr - try this link http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=+cyclisme&ss=2&s=rec for some eye candy. I think JP Weigle's rando bikes are looking awsome, but there is some great stuff if you have the time to wade through it all.
The Daily Randonneur has more specific links plus some interesting ride reports from the Shenandoah 1200km which was ridden last week. A jolly time was had by all.
