una cafetería buena

i was running around town enjoying the last hour of nice weather before the rain and cold (and eventual snow later tonight) brings us back into winter. i stopped by cultiva for a latte, and man let me tell ya... it was damn good!

anybody need a lazyboy?

wtf? people just dump their stuff along the dirt roads now? sad. along with the lazyboy there were a few kitchen chairs... and a half mile before there was a couch.

enjoy it while it lasts

i got to bed way too late last night to have been able to join the d st. clan on their ride this morning, so i headed out in the afternoon instead. i did about 40 miles on the dirt.. and the legs were cement as expected. a mile or so south after this turn 25th street is no longer flat but just one hill after another all the way to princeton road and beyond. on top of that, a stiff headwind made it hurt even more. i hope everyong else got in some miles today because it will be back to snow and a high of 20 by tuesday.

on this morning's commute i saw this abandoned bike along N street. perhaps someone had a few too many beers downtown last night and tried to ride home, eventually opting to walk the rest of the way? it looked to be of late 70's vintage and low-end quality, but nevertheless it was complete in decent shape. what caught my eye was the AAU logos on the headtube fairing and chainring guard. did the AAU try to promote cycling in the late 70's? i wonder if these bikes were part of some grassroots program back then.

real old school

while at the mill this evening i saw this cool poster (repro of a mead cycle co. catalog, circa 1918). if i lived back in those days my choice would be the racer model.

cycling shoes

i'm converting my friend lindsey from a marathon runner to a roadie, so i went to help her shop for a new road bike. i suggested that she wear sneakers and not heels like she always does, but that didn't stop lindsey from showing up wearing her blue paradise kittens. she scored a specialized allez down at southpointe at an unbelievably low price. now i need to find her some sidis.

auld lang syne

it's no fun going out when you're sick with a nasty cold... so for new year's eve i ended up just hanging out at home. i made some soup and watched the live new year's eve concert of the new york philharmonic, and then set to finishing up the build on the new cross bike (it's about 3 months overdue). i hope everyone had a fun night whatever you were doing. happy new year!
