Arrival in Geneva

Well, it did not take long to get in the spirit, as it seemed half the passengers on the Geneva flight, United 974, were bound for European cycling vacations...there were helmets and gear everywhere, one guy was even already in spandex! Met one guy who was doing the Extreme version of King of the Mountains, which includes one day when they do 4 climbs (Telegraphe, Galibier, Alpe D'Huez and Crois de Fer). He had done the trip last year with different climbs..several other guys were on Trek Geneva, bike boxes came off the luggage carousel one after another, many had brought their bikes and planned to ship back after if they were staying...shuttled to the airport hotel to get some shuteye and then begin carbo loading for tomorrow: the prologue....

Paul - with all those bikers onboard, the airline should have been prepared with spin cycles in the aisle and Gatoraide offerings from the stewardesses. Don't forget your fluids while carboloading.

Was that one guy in spandex our intrepid Rockvillian? Good luck to you and all the Thomson Tourists all week! Fly over those wee bumps and keep the blogs coming.
