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 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!

  1. You should also inform us about the name of the "good" bike shop so that we know too. Especially if you like the service in the end! Don't keep it all for yourself! :)
