ORIENTATION, BIKE FITTING, and A RIDE IN COPENHAGEN!
Today‘s weather was sunny and a cool 58 degrees as Dan, Rick and I
walked 5 miles to the “Waterfront” and back . Not surprisingly, it was a large
tourist crowd at the iconic multi-colored buildings in Copenhagen; a beautiful
spot in the Capital city of Denmark.
Our first “official gathering” of the 12 cyclists and 3 guides for the Expedition
from Copenhagen to Paris took place today at 1:00 pm. We met Enrico (Italy),
Lois (Belgium), and Lisa (Italy) our guides for the adventure. They gave us an excellent
Overview of the ride: the rules, the highlights, of this 1000mile bike tour of Western Europe.
We mounted our bikes at 2:00pm and rode 10 k through the busy streets amidst the
numerous folks in the bike paths of Copenhagen. Our destination was the “Mermaid” statue
on the waterfront. A dinner followed at an excellent nouvelle cuisine restaurant!
