During this historically mild Washington winter, I’ve done plenty of local biking and walking but not much driving. I haven’t had anything travel related to write about.
I have been getting a lot done around the house, including sorting through, scanning, and tossing decades worth of paper in anticipation of an eventual move.
One of the surprising things I came across was this page from a Peugeot bicycle brochure. It depicts the lovely “Peppermint and White” St. Laurent Express I bought at a bike shop in Arlington, Virginia, around 1987. On the flip side is the equally attractive “Jamaica Blue and White” Montreal Express. The St. Laurent cost $365; the Montreal cost $310.
I’ve never seen more beautiful bicycles. Makes me wish I kept my mint-green Peugeot!
