7am en het namsestraat

7am en het Namsestraat.

And the town is quiet.

Everyone is taking the long holiday week and I was up before my alarm.

It has warmed up enough that I did not have to wear the heavy gloves but there is still ice on the ground.

Just needed to share the radness of riding across town on empty cobbled streets, on my gucci race bike, in street clothes. I was up early to deal with some car trouble and meet a mechanic for a jump. It went faster than expected and I rode around town to the co-op for a loaf of fresh bread stuffed in my jacket for the ride home.

Riding back and forth across town does not take half as long as it takes for me to ride to work in Portland.

Living the life. Got my own big apartment with a view.

Was up late last night gluing tyres on the new wheels.

Reading the latest Rouler mag with my coffee and toast.

Goode morgen.

  2. Molly, so good to hear everything is going well. Portland is cold, wet, windy and perfect. Like an English speaking Belgium.

    Race hard, HUP HUP!
