What a day for cycling! Temperate, light breeze, sunshine, the barest hint of fall in the light and the air.
Traffic was nearly nil on Lafayette St.
At the Union Square Greenmarket, one of my favorite farmers was selling ice pops made from his outstanding Tristar strawberries (a part-wild variety, intensely flavored, reminiscent of fraises des bois) – just berries, a little sugar, basil. So delicious!
Oh, and Monty has a new set of handlebar grips: Ergon BioKork, grip shift length. The small size is just right for my hands, and the material feels comfortable. I like the color coordination with frame and saddle, too.
