Like A Pig Needs a Bicycle?

“A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.”  So goes the famous feminist quote often incorrectly attributed to Gloria Steinem. While women may not need men, and fish may not need bicycles, pigs need both.  At least that was the sense on the streets of Lexington on Saturday. 

Women and men alike participated in the 19th annual Tour de Pig, a bicycle race that is affiliated with The Barbecue Festival.  See full coverage of the Tour de Pig, including photos and video footage, in this Lexington Dispatch article.  And stay tuned for The Barbecue Festival itself, which takes place on October 23rd.

    Sorry that I missed this event, but I was judging at the Eastern Carolina BBQ Throw Down in Rocky Mount. There were LOTS of teams and some good eats. A good time was had by all!
