Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Dublin and/or London

I will finally get a chance to go to Europe while not chaperoning students, not even bringing my kids.

Will have time in both Dublin and London to meander. The wife and I would love to find some shops, particularly for kit. We are using public transportation exclusively (buses, The Tube, etc).

Will also spend a few days in Paris with a trip to Amiens to, hopefully, catch a glimpse of The Tour.

All accessible ideas are appreciated.

I spent some time in London last summer, the boris bikes were the best way to get around. I checked out a few shops, including condor.
