Pedaling to Oktoberfest
I have bought my tickets to Europe for a once dreamed about bicycle trip that will take place this coming September. After flying into Paris on September 3rd I will visit a friend of mine who lives just south of the city in Fountainbleu where Nepoleon once held residence. From there I will determine a place of departure for the bicycling part of my journey based upon how the weather is looking in Europe. After 23 days on the continent I will depart from Munich on the 25th after spending some time with my dear friend Erika and some new friends I now have in the city of Monks.
Tonight, I start with the first of a few "Shakedowns" for the bike and the equipment that I have assembled for the trip.
