    Various people were called upon to give their own stories of the local parks. Cyclists listen as columnist Rick Ohler gives his knowledge about the Cazenovia Creek Nature Sanctuary on South Street.

On Wednesday, July 25, while the elite cyclists of the world were struggling through Stage 17 of the Tour de France - a brutal, 65-kilometre, uphill battle from Bagnères-de-Luchon to Col du Portet - a mixed bag of local cyclists were tackling the somewhat less rigorous 12-kilometre Tour des Parcs through the Village d’East Aurora. It was a Spandex optional affair with bikes from the fancy to the forlorn, led by the eminent artist and historian Peter Potter.

Potter, who, coincidentally, resides on Park Place, started the trip at Dan Park’s Chain Ring Rhythm shop at Main and South Willow. From there he led a peloton of 70 or so pedalers south on Willow to Prospect to Hamlin Park. At Hamlin he gathered the fleet and invited participants to share information and anecdotes about the park. Several volunteered stories about the immense (in a child’s eye) sled hill at the northwest corner of the park.
