    Almost 12,000 ft? Damn, I didn't realize the passes in North America went so much higher than the European ones.

    Col d'Iseran a few weeks ago.

    I need to go there! And this is coming from someone that's recently knocked off the highest pass :P.

    Awesome photos. I'd never thought of spending a night at the top of a pass.

    I live in Grenoble. There is a nice flat cycling path that runs pretty far along the river, other than that it's all climbing.

    I miss my Forerunner 305 (it broke and now I have the 210)! I just used Garmin Training Center and Strava (plus my own Excel sheet).

    You're welcome. You probably saw the previous option where your bike isn't guaranteed to ride on the same train as you.

    FWIW - If you're thinking about lugging bikes from the US to France,...

    Looks like it'd be pretty awesome! I've ridden a bunch of the roads the Alps and they are incredible.

    Some TGV lines have a space for bikes, but it requires a special ticket/reservation (I think it's like 10 EUR extra). However, a dismantled bike in a bag/box simply counts as a piece of luggage. I've...

    How much riding do you realistically plan on doing?
    How big of a car will you have? Some of the cars over here are pretty small.

    I had a friend from Canada come over to Grenoble in the fall and...

    I rode through a Belgian winter with overshoes like the ones in the photo, my rides were typically wet and a bit above freezing or dry and a 5-10 degrees below freezing. I never had any problems with...

    Damn! Good luck with the recovery. Personally, I broke my radius and ulna playing hockey and was itching to get back on the ice (I had a decent shot even with the cast on :P). You'll probably be a...

    Did the park work out alright?

    Also, I see you're in Paris. Are there any good places to cycle within the city itself? Are you an ex-pat or French?

    I'm principally a runner but I started doing a lot more cycling last year. This summer I was riding a lot more than I was running and when I ran I did notice that the first 10-15 minutes felt pretty...

    I'm with the other posters in saying that you shouldn't try and concentrate on the language while riding hard.

    Unless you've got a knack for languages (and currently speak French or Spanish) then...

    If the weather is nice I would go check out the Hoge Veluwe National Park (it's a bit of a trip from the city, but it seems like you've already seen a lot of stuff in the city).

    I have 9 speed Tiagra everything, except the crankset (which is 10 speed) and there are no problems whatsoever. I don't know about your bottom bracket though.
