Quick Picks: L’Eroica Historic Race; Artspace tour; ‘RAM’
Saturday, May 19
Stay in gear
Cyclists participating in the 102-mile L’Eroica (The Hero) Historic Race will set off at 7 a.m. from Brown Cycles, 549 Main St.
The event recreates a race that was held from 1899–1915 and went from Grand Junction to Glenwood Springs.
Some of this year’s 20 or so scrappy cyclists will wear period attire while riding older bikes and seeing them off on this race will certainly be interesting.
Saturday and Sunday, May 19–20

e_SDLqLadies and gentlemen, this is an album from a long, long time ago, when the world was different. This is an album that is part of my history — it goes back to the wee hills of Scotland where it was formed,” were the words Paul McCartney said earlier this year when it was announced that he and Linda McCartney’s album “RAM” would be re-released after a deluxe remastering.
The deluxe edition includes four CDs, a bonus DVD film about the album, photos, lyrics, notes and more.
“RAM” originally was released in 1971 and was McCartney’s second post-Beatles LP.
