Bike Porn Friday: Words! Words! Words!

So, uh, well, because none of the rest of the TroisV feels like posting anything, and I don't feel like looking up some sexybike photos, and because various things have been going on, here's a long description of various activities.

First, Dr Matt's book has arrived, and with it, the TroisV heads officially into print:



Moving swiftly along, on Saturday evening Dr. Doug attended dinner at the home of the Junior Member. This meal was notable for its delicious quiche (real men eat it) and equally delicious raspberry meringue. Calorific! It was also notable for the Junior Member being pleased to don his official club jersey for the meal, but then being a bit too shy (at first) to actually sit down at the table. The shyness quickly evaporated in favor of (in what I feel is true TroisV spirit) hurling abuse at the other official member at the table. Flotsnoo!, Cosmo, Flotsnoo!

Anyway, on Sunday Dr. Doug headed out with the Junior Member's mother, and follower of this very site, Isobel, on the Cycling Club Hackney's weekly Early Risers Ride. It was a biggish group, which split into two once we'd reached Epping Forest. The riders were nice people, the weather was sunny and hot, and I for one had a really nice time and will be joining them again down the road. Here's the stats from the ride, including a map:

The Key Lime Pie received multiple comments, but not one of the Hackney Cyclists commented on the fetching club jersey, which I wore with pride. How disappointing.

The Doctors wore themselves out on Wednesday evening with a glorious hills ride up West Highgate, Swain's Lane and the Alpine Village, and Dr. Doug played at being a bike courier Thursday and Friday (today!), first delivering something called stroopwafels to City Hall, before running into an old foe:



and then today meeting Dr. Matt's sister and brother-in-law to deliver some keys and collect a ticket. For both of these deliveries, Dr. Doug saw fit to wear his U.S. Postal cap.

Time to rest and listen to rock.

Flotsnoo!
TroisV!
