'An American in Paris' - Inspiration by Gershwin & Reid

It appears that Dave Reid and company felt the same inspiration that Gershwin did while visiting Paris. Gershwin's symphonic tone is to evoke the sights and energy of the French Capitol. Dave chipped out 221 k in under 8 hours today. I know how I feel after riding 130+ miles and the thought of catching a quick bite to eat and jumping back on the saddle for a 1000 more kilometers usually does not run through my mind.

Keep Dave and little bro in your thoughts for the next 80 hours. I still can't believe he is doing this.
