Greg’s old friend

Posted on

The attached photos are from when my red Vincitore was new. She was built by Derek Land and dubbed Mercy Ann due to the peculiar American way I pronounce Mercian. These photos were taken early in a cycling journey that took me from Seattle, Washington to Washington DC, a three month ride in the summer of 1996. Mercy Ann and I are still together, though we have not yet taken another trip quite as grand. She never fails to turn a head and always spends extra time when in the shop because all the guys want to take her out for a spin.
Thanks Greg for the letter and pictures.
