On the way home from riding, we often stop off to watch the Greater Boston Soaring Club operate in Sterling, MA and see what's flying. This week the stop was good for a "birds of a feather" pic.
Whenever we ride in, someone usually comes over to chat about the bikes and/or tries to get us to join the club. This week was no exception as one of the originating founders of the club came by to chat. He's in his 80s and still flying. Although soaring looks more interesting than powered flight (which is expensive and mostly boring, IMHO), we'd rather spend our time and money riding. For those of you who might be interested in soaring, here's a nice video made by the club. Should you stop by, chances are you will find the group to be friendly and welcoming.
