(Almost) back from the holidays

Hi everyone.  Tonight is our last night of holiday travels.  I’m writing this post from the living room of my dad and stepmom’s house in beautiful rural east Alabama.  I don’t have much to share, except that I did get some swell biking gear for Christmas.  Specifically, my brother hooked me up with a totally cool Walz cycling cap.  I’ve long coveted such hats, and now I have one of my own.  Check the photo below.


Pretty swell, huh?  I especially like the choice of grey wool with a black stripe.

We also have some Christmas cash to spend, so if I buy any more gear, I’ll be sure to write about it.  Hope your holiday was bike-tastic too.  Leave me a comment if you scored any schwag.

Two bits

People.  I ran across a couple of links I wanted to share with you before I biked to work this morning.

First, having blogged several times about the perception that cyclists are elitists, you can image my surprise when I ran across this article debating whether cycling to work is unprofessional.  So let’s see, this makes me not just an elitist, but an unprofessional one at that.  I just can’t win.  Fortunately I’m an academic, so no one really cares what I look like anyway.

Second, somehow after seeing this, the Frazier fir we by every year just doesn’t cut it.

Bonus: i have now added Cyclelicious and The Bicycle is Art to my RSS feeds.  You should too.
