A Worthwhile Exhibition
Some photos of last night's opening of the Velo+City exhibit that I wrote about yesterday. The Exhibit will be up for a month and the gallery is open from 10-7 daily except Monday. The food spread was pretty impressive, though we didn't eat. The period posters from the Golden Age of cycling were really quite nice (and expensive.) It was not a large show, but there were some really good pieces. It was great to mix with the biking community, especially impressive was the number of messengers, poorly photographed here, that were in attendance.
This morning Annie and I road a single loop of just over 14 miles (due to train detour.) It is going to be a quite hot day. We met George along the trail and rode with him for a bit and I have a few errands that will put me on the bike again later today. Speaking of which, if you pledge to use your bike to commute or do errands around town you might win a new Trek bike. The widget below will continue to appear in the side-bar as well. So, take the pledge and good luck on winning the bike!
I know it was just yesterday that I mentioned Bill Strickland's piece on the Lanternne Rouge, but Bill has an even more interesting and timely view of the doping in the pro peloton issue that you might really be interested in reading.
