I didn’t teach this week since it was Labor Day, but I still wanted to throw a post in this week. It’s not a playlist, and I can’t help but think that it’d only be appropriate to talk about 9/11 this week since the 10 year anniversary of that tragic day is this Sunday. I was a freshman in high school when that happened; wow has the time flown.
A shoutout to SoulCycle is highly deserved here, as they did a 9/11 tribute ride this week. I couldn’t find an article about it on their website, but here is a taste of what they did:
SoulCycle has partnered with the World Trade Center Memorial, which will be dedicated on the ten-year anniversary of the attacks. The Memorial will honor the nearly 3,000 people who were killed as a place of remembrance as well as a symbol of hope for the future.
Pretty awesome, great job SoulCycle!
My new friends at Spynergy in Wellesley, MA are also spinning to pay tribute to 9/11: http://www.spynergywellesley.com/blog/2011/8/23/september-11th-event-turning-hate-into-something-goodplease.html
On the weekend of September 11th this year, Spynergy co-owner Bill Pryor and 50 others are riding their bikes 270 miles from Ground Zero in New York to the Esplanade in Boston.

One more BADASS cyclist you should read about! http://community.guinnessworldrecords.com/_Cyclist-all-set-for-attempt-at-record-breaking-911-tribute-ride-across-America/blog/4933235/7691.html
An American fitness instructor is gearing up for a road trip with a difference as he looks to set a new record for the fastest time to cycle to all 48 contiguous US states.
The record attempt will form part of Max McManus’ effort to ride across each of the country’s 50 states within just 50 days – a feat that no one has managed before.
Speechless. Can you imagine the emotions after such a feat? Good luck McManus!
Here’s an article from Boston.com I read this week that was evoking and captivating. It’s a story about a few people who worked at Logan Airport, and how their lives have changed since then. http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2011/09/06/the_rarely_noticed_casualties_of_sept_11/
One last thing, a song for you called “On 9/11/01” by one of my long time favorite musicians, G. Love of G. Love and Special Sauce:
I can’t understand why that youtube video only has 5 views as I post this to my blog. As always, thanks for stopping by, and this Sunday, no matter where you are in the world we live in, remember and honor those who passed on that day, and SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! I love and miss you, Lt. Brandt, and stay safe dear friend.
