We landed- Nice, (Vence), France

After 12 hours of flying we made it to France. Connecting through London was tight and we sprinted for 2 miles to get to our gate only to find that they closed the flight. With a little work we finally got on the flight.

Our first night is here in Vence just 15 minutes from Nice. The town reminds us a lot of Laguna Beach with a more dramatic mountain backdrop. It took 3 hours to assemble the new beast. Today we will give it a test.

First meal in Vence was great....

New Bike....12 days to departure

We made the commitment and bought a "coupled" tandem for our upcoming trip. The new custom Erickson is awesone. We've only ridden it 100 miles but they proved that Glenn knows his stuff when it comes to tandem buliding. The ride is incredibly smooth and extremely efficent! Here's the bike and a shot overlooking Dana Pt. harbor mid way through a 70 mile 4400 ft. day.
