Orchard Street Sunday

this past Saturday's weather was epic for January in New York.  Warm and sunny, the city was alive with smiles, people eating outside at restaurants, post-holiday sales, and perfect riding conditions.  Unfortunately, I chose to ride the subway all day, but that's ok, I made up for it on Sunday when it was 20  degrees colder, d'oh!

after hanging out with Cicero, I headed into the city to Selfedge to check out their goods and then headed up to watch the Giants game at Adam and Alina's place on the UWS.

But I had to snap a few pics of A.J.'s beautiful shovel parked across the street from where I stopped first.  I swear, seeing other bikes that you like is like nothing else.  If you're a bike owner you know what I'm talking about.  Nothing else matters, you walk up to it, check it out, look at the details, don't say a word but just smile and then move on.  maybe snap a few pics.  But you can't NOT do that.  You have to look.....and I love it.

so I did just that.....walked over, looked, squatted next to it, checked out the little bips and bops, took a few pictures and kept on my journey.  Rode up 6th and 8th aves, and it was a fun few hour jaunt.
