It's Tour de France time, and this year I decided to go watch at Alpe d'Huez and bring Mr Ramen along this time. It surely was a lot cheaper and more convenient than hiring. To this end I had to buy a bike bag which I managed to find the week before on eBay.
Luckily it all arrived in one piece, no damage that I could ascertain. I wasn't as nervous as last time I took a bike on a plane which was when I moved to London as this was only a 1 1/2 hour flight. The Alpe d'Huez stage is on in a few days so it'll allow me some time to climb it and do some other riding. Stay tuned!
