So having had my schedule delayed due to staying in Belgium an extra day, and still wanting to be in Paris on Sunday, and still not be up for riding long distances (ahhhh!!!! how horrible!!!), I decided to take the train from Mons to Paris. Yes, a horrible horrible thought. So I get to the train station, only to discover that they don't allow bikes on the train I had to take-- WHAT?! This to me sounded absurd and strange. Absurdly strange. So now what was I to do?!
So the decision was made that I would leave my bike with Austin... and I started traveling without my bike.
