avid readers of "cycles" will know that for me the cycling never actually stops. in fact this has been the best back-to-back year of riding i can ever remember as i managed to cycle right through the winter and so carry a seamless experience from last summer in my legs and head that i hope will help me on my planned big journey this summer.
more about that another time.
meanwhile, i bought another bike while i was in quebec a month or so ago. i was riding with a friend through the hills and valleys there and we passed a coffee shop that also seemed to sell bikes. so we agreed that on our way back we'd stop in for pastries and coffee and cast an eye on the merchandise.
While not about racing, my fave bicycle movie of all time is "The Bicycle Thief". Get a box of Kleeenex or wear a long-sleeved shirt for wiping on the fly. Here's Part One and here's Part Two and here's Part Three and here's Part Four here's Part Five and . . . here's Part Six
