Moving to France (Marseille area), should I bring my bike?
I applied for a year long university research position in France (Marseille, Aix-en-Provence area) and was chosen! Now I have 3 weeks to get ready and move (ack).
In New York, I commute everywhere by bicycle (touring bike I purchased at the beginning of the summer) and would like to take it with, or have it sent after I arrive. Is that a good idea? Or would I be better off finding something there?
For that matter, anyone have any tips on cycling in the area? Or bike shops? I think I'll have a 15km or so commute, but have no idea what the roads are like around there.
