The three Randonneurs I saw on the ride yesterday indicates another rite of Spring: the test ride. Maybe they had a new crank, mapping system, or working on their cadence. They were out there going about 15 mph on steel bikes with panniers. Up into Magnolia, down, and back up to Queen Anne, I spotted a couple Vanmoofs at a boutique store and then a wood-trimmed district.
Sitting in the sun waiting for a ride, also noticed the Italian flair on the back on my Vittorias. Didn’t notice that before!
