This is an appropriate place to state my preference for black and masked.

Hey, I have that exact Miyata in that color in my garage. Also, I'm reasonably sure that I saw that lady riding at Eroica California a year or two ago.

I was putting myself thru college as an operator at a TO radio station and aired that tune hundreds of times but never saw this video. I was also a Jam/Going Underground kinda guy so Paul Weller solo stuff was not cool.

Was she in high heels that day, too?
Western lassie, but well North of CA; clearly up for a gravel challenge that day. Could easily ride an Eroica loop.
