    Hi, all, it's been a while since my last post. I've been having a bad year personally, struggling with life in general.

    For now, though, I have something to look forward to: I'll be visiting the French Alps shortly (leaving on Friday next week), and cycling there, based at 2 B&Bs, for a month. Aie, mes jambes! At least I'll get away from Australia for a while: the poor attitude to cyclists here continues to anger, upset and depress me.

    I don't know if I'll post to the "bike in front of a col" thread, though, while I'm over there: why post a photo of a col sign when you can post a photo of the spectacular Alpine scenery beyond it? In other words, I'll probably post some photos, but just in the "picture of the day" thread or something similar.

    Regards,

    --- Victor.

    Definitely. I learned the hard way in 2016 (my first cycling trip to France) that using any other saddle is a recipe for much pain.

    Enjoy your trip, hopefully it's the catalyst for better things to come.

    I'll look forward to seeing your pictures. :thumbsup:

    The fresh mountain air will do you good. Just breathe in all you need, to savour it.

    ^^^ I meant, will you be choosing a new one now you are actually going to France?

    Hope you have a great time and sorry for the cryptic message.

    No, the signature's still very relevant. I only wish I could stay in France, and never return to Australia. But we don't always get what we want.
