11/19/2005 -- Passing through Lexington, MA

Well, here I am in the beautiful town of Lexington. This is one of the few cities I intend to pass through in which I will have actually set foot. If I were a real tourist, I would by gazing at the Lexington Battle Green or the Old Belfry. Or at the very least, I might talk about my fascination with our Revolutionary Period (favorite founding father: Alexander Hamilton). However, what I would really like to talk about is the Tour de Scoops.

The Tour de Scoops is one of the most prestigious bike races in the Metro Boston area. Lance Armstrong has been invited to this race, but he has generally demurred. It’s not the 25 mile length of the race that puts Lance off. Nor is it the steep yet gentle rolling hills around Massachusetts. It’s not even the thousands of pedestrians with whom we share the track. No, it’s the ice cream. Anyone can get out there and ride over one thousand miles across France, but how many people can ride and eat ice cream at the same time?

The Tour de Scoops was conceptualized back in the late 90s, when one brilliant actuary (now with the Evil Empire as we competitors like to call it) noticed that there are many ice cream parlors around the Minute Man trail that runs from Somerville to Bedford. The Tour de Scoops stops in at 5 of these and most folks wind up with a pretty fair stomach ache by the end. This has to be one of the few sporting events I know of in which you end up with more grams of fat than when you started.

As far as I know, this tradition has fallen out of existence over the past couple of years which is truly disappointing, but I assure you that I think of it every time I have ice cream in the midst of a major sporting competition.

14,500 steps today. Alas, no ice cream.
Cheers,
