She has written about her "attraction to beautiful track bikes" and "wistfulness for the velodrome," which she had dismissed as "ludicrous."
Well, I warned her....If we dismiss or resist something long enough, we'll take to it, or it will take us! (Trust me, I know that as well as anybody can.) So I exhorted her to "go for it." And, I made a deal: My spirit would guide her if she promised to bring back one of those beautiful dress guards she always seems to find when she's in Vienna.
Yesterday she took her first ride on a track bike--yes, in Vienna! And, from what she says, she enjoyed the experience.
Congratulations, Velouria. And you owe me a dress guard! ;-)
