Great Bookshops

    A couple of weeks ago, I placed an order for Hounded, by Kevin Hearne. I initially considered going through Amazon, just for convenience, but the delivery cost would have been about the same as the price of the book.

    So just to see how long it would take, I called up Hidges Figgis, one of the oldest bookshops in Dublin (the oldest? Probably) to place an order. Less than a week later, I got a call to let me know it was in, and it was going to cost me €4 less than it would have cost from Amazon, once delivery was factored in.

    I love Hodges Figgis. It's such a nicely laid out place, with really knowledgeable staff. One of their staff was happy to discuss options for buying books on narrative and artisitic symbolism for a solid ten minutes, and his first choice out of all of them was a book he fully admitted I'd probably have to go online to find.

    Every now and again I rekindle my love of a good bookshop. I could spend hours just wandering around looking at the shelves and smelling the books. I've let that love lapse a lot in recent years. I think it's high time I made more of an effort to get my books from somewhere like Hodges Figgis, especially since I'm discovering so many great writers to check out these days. I'll be buying more books, so rather than being lazy and spending extra money to have something delivered to me, I think I'll put in the extra effort and support a good bookshop, particularly if they can keep beating the likes of Amazon on price like that!

Bikejam, And Smugness

    So yesterday was, as all the internet knows, Bikejam/Kelly Cup up in B'more. I did basically exactly the same as I did last year, only this time in the 3/4 race. Which is to say, I posted a profoundly mediocre result, but am starting to see some form come back around, which is a good sign for the future.

    Bikejam is a fairly technical course, what with the fences that look like cheese graters at speed, and the bottlenecking chicanes. Positioning is critical in a race like that, and I let myself get into bad positions for a lot of the race, and it certainly didn't help me. I did plant myself on the start line and get through the first turn first in order to avoid the mess. One of the 8 DC Velo guys attacked, and when another went up front to sit up, I figured, OK, may as well try this out, and next thing I knew, I was off the front for the first couple laps with a Coppi guy. Then we got caught and I set about trying to sit in, but it was tough. A stereotypical complaint, I know, but guys were just ALL OVER THE PLACE with their bikes. In the chicane right after the S/F, one guy put his front wheel into another guy's skewer. Some bro knocked his bars into mine trying to move up in the gutter. Bikes were getting busted up on the unkempt road surface.

    With about 5 laps to go, I pulled myself together and chased up to a small group that was a few seconds up the road, but then the group disintegrated, and I had basically burned all my matches too early. On the last lap, I weaved my way up through half the pack, but of course weaving up through the back half of the pack still only puts you halfway through the pack.

    At the end of the day, I had a good time, and that's what it's all about anyway.

    Smugness:
    This week I moved.
    This is how I did it:

    That is my single-speed lashed to the top of the bike trailer in order to save me a trip.

    It took a lot of trips.
    I have too much stuff.
    Happily settling into my new place now.

    I don't race again until the Tour of Washington County, to which I am looking forward. The GC there includes two time trials (one of which is a prologue). About 3 1/2 weeks remain to prepare; I am taking a trip home this week and will be away from my bike, so I will have to train like this for the week.

    I am famous on the internet again over at anoncx. That guy is a total boss. The picture he posted makes me all angsty for cross season, which I suppose will come soon enough.

    In the event you've been living under a rock and haven't heard this song yet, do it now:
