It is resting comfortably by the window on the 2nd floor of my Parisian flat, absorbing the French air filled with delicious bakeries and history. The bike is fully loaded, with everything that I am going to bring on PBP, minus the water bottles. I am looking forward to picking up a pair of water bottles tomorrow at a local bike shop.
Patrick is finishing up reassembling his Bilenky tandem. We are going to do the 'shakedown' ride on Saturday.
