Of peacocks and fresh rash
One of the key reasons I often give for commuting via velo is that one gets to see the things you'd miss in a car. On the way past the zoo this morning, I got to see the pure white peacock in full fan. Is that what you'd call it? So pretty I had to stop and gaze.
I skinned my knee yesterday thanks to an inadequate front end lift onto the bike path. I didn't realize the wet grass was hiding such an edge. Also sporting fresh rash is MWC's Eric. He didn't give details beyond it happened on the way to work. And suffering a great deal more than rash is my friend Jen Greenberg (left) who spilled hard during a crit up north this weekend. She broke her jaw and now enjoys her vegan diet through a straw, but says she's good to go for Superweek mid-July. She's tough. The picture is by Roger Meadows. Check out his Tulsa Slideshow.
