last night i ran into emily and TJ at the shop. em and i go way back so i'm glad that she recently moved back to lincoln because that means we'll see her and TJ more often. TJ is the coolest pooch ever. he probably has put in more miles with emily on her bike rides (running or riding in a trailer) than any of her other biking buddies. we headed over to yiayia's to catch up over a slice and a few drinks. yo em, i hope you also brought a road bike with you back to nebraska. welcome back! :)

friday evening i rode out to the sunset community farm (in west lincoln) for the community crops farmtour. along with the friendly staff giving tours, each farmer had prepared some food from their latest harvest. i especially enjoyed the salsa and veggie tamales made with papalo that was grown by rogaciano and enriqueta. man they were delicious!

this is the poster of laurent fignon that i've had up in my place for many years. i was a fan of 'the professor', as he was known, and i was saddened to hear of his passing yesterday. the cyclists of fignon's generation were the last of the hard men who raced during the big transition in the sport in the late 80's and early 90's, when clips and leather straps gave way to clipless, brake cables went aero, friction shifting gave way to indexing, and the doping became more prevalent. His autobiography came out last year and I'm curious to read his take on it all.
