Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Terminal 2E Gate K35 CDG to JFK
Sadly, I'm only transiting through Paris on my way to Seattle, but it's nice to be back in high tech France. Breakfast on the flight was pretty lame, so I'm having coffee and a croissant while I wait, and figure out the free wifi. During this morning's wee hours I woke to see a large city on the Black Sea. Flying over Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan reminds me that I know very little about this area. But their geographical proximity to Northern India explains a lot about the waves of conquest through Delhi and environs. It's wonderful to be able to see history writ large on the landscape.
