My son Linus is going to study this year in Strasbourg, France. He has been a bicycle mechanic for about 6 years now (at the tender of age of 21 presently) and so naturally he wants to take the Medici (does anyone remember the "Not today, James--I will take the Medici" ad from days of yore, talking to the butler, choosing the Medici over the Rolls?) Anyway, that's another discussion...
What Linus needs now is any help he can get about sending the bike as well as another, unspeakably off-topic bike to France. This includes any help about airlines (he is taking British Airways to Heathrow, then Paris) and then from Paris to Strasbourg by train.
If any of the cool jet-setters among you have done something like this, have any travel/packing/general advice at all (other than "God help you" which was always my mom's advice) both Linus and I would be very very appreciative!
Ricky Garni Carrboro "The Paris of the Piedmont" (Honestly, they say that here. Kinda funny, when you look at it. Carrboro, I mean.)
