the cloud generator (as the Jura mountains are defined by my friend Aurelio) this morning was not active in the morning and it was possible to have a ride today. The classic: Farges-Geneve-Freney Voltaire-Farges, famous among the professionals, in particular for the breakfast with coffee and pain-au-chocolat in Place Boug du Four in the old town....to be precise, I can speak of a real PAIN (with English meaning) au chocolat: same taste of a sponge used to wash the dishes....deep sadness, but when you are starving...also a sponge can be food!
The journey was also the occasion to find a new bike workshop, where I booked a check-up for my bike next week. why do I say this? because I was so disappointed when the shop next to my village (Culture Velo, to be clear) refused to check my bike, because as they said: "we have a planning for the next month and we have no room for you"....ok...fair enough....if you were a famous heart surgeon with a list of people waiting for you I could accept it.
Bah ok, eventually I found this new shop that will help me...and ironically the owner is from Sweden ahahahahah! MIRACLE IN PAYS DE GEX!!
The official starting day of the West-to-East tour is approaching faster and faster (airplane is taking off the 27th)...I am really looking forward to leave!
