    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,...

    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).

    It's a big park...

    I've got climbs ranging from about 900 to 1300 m (so about 3000 to 4300 ft) pretty close-by.

    I used to bring a bunch of bottles of water (one was soapy) and a sponge down to the street outside my place because my shower was too small.

    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.

    Mvcrash - Yeah, I get the feeling that I should have stopped, but the dog seemed much more aggressive from the get-go. I have been approached by similar dogs guarding flocks of sheep while hiking....

    Long story short: I got attacked by a dog yesterday and now I'm trying to make sense of it before I develop an incurable phobia of all dogs.

    Yesterday morning my friend and I headed up to...

    Nice! That's awesome to hear that Trek was so involved with you. Can you post some close-ups of the bars and the shifter?

    Is there any sort of source for that? I find that my "corrected" readings on Strava are much higher than I would expect, while the original readings were close. This is mainly on rides where I start...

    I think the daylight could be an issue. Early snowfalls could also be a problem.

    As for which ones are "easy", I'm not really sure. I did Grenoble to Turin in a day last August... but it certainly...

    Are you going to be able to meet the seller in person? Is there a way to tell if the shifters are functional even if they're not attached to anything (I've had shifters that looked fine but didn't...

    De Muur looks cool. I just moved out Belgium last week after a year in Liège/Luik so I'm sort of kicking myself for not hitting it at least once (I did spend a decent amount of my time in the...
