I ordered several Nevil Shute

I ordered several Nevil Shute novels from the library today. What’s that got to do with cycling? Nothing other than Grant Peterson’s enthusiasm for Shute, whose books he peddles online.

Now that Fall’s fully arrived I’ve been thinking about leisurely rides. You know, the kind where you haul a book, a few bananas, and a camera, and stop frequently to waste time. One of the difficulties of riding a racing bike is lack of room to carry stuff. Beth and I get around that by hauling a handlebar bag and rack trunk on the tandem, but I’m not enthusiastic about that for my single bikes. This, on the other hand, looks like an appealing option. Or this, but not in Hello Kitty colors. Basic black, please.
