Amidst all the discussion about bike selling scams and other travails, a simple reminder of why we might devote such affection, effort and money into this pursuit.

Yesterday I was riding my '69 Peugeot PX-10e in full Peugeot livery (jersey, cap etc) in Rock Creek Park here in Washington when I passed a jogger coming in the opposite direction. I thought he looked British. Sure enough as I passed, he smiled and called out in a perfect English accent: "TOMMY SIMPSON!"

What more can an Anglophile riding a Peugeot PX-10 possibly hope for?
