On January the 17th I will fly from America to France, where I will remain for six months. I'm going as part of a study abroad program for my college under the pretenses of learning the language and exposing myself to the culture of France. Although I will be doing both of these things, what they don't know is I'm really going to France to ride my bike. From the city of Strasbourg I will be right on the borders of France, Germany, and Belgium, a prime location for riding and a short train ride away from the best of the Spring Classics. The idea of this blog is to chronicle my time there and as it relates to cycling and the general culture. It's sure to be an exciting journey, so check back often.
