Sam Ehlers about to fly to France for Paris-Brest-Paris 2015 Randonneur

Friday, Aug 14th, Two Days to Go

The plan for this time around was to just focus on the ride alone, so I would fly out just before the start and leave just after the finish, leaving no extra time for touring or relaxing. My flight from Winnipeg left at 7:35 and dropped me off in Toronto for an 11 hour layover. I was told the bike would be transferred to the next airplane by the crew, but that still left me nervous about being separated from it for that long. I just had to trust it would appear in Paris. The long layover also left me a bit hungry as I can only eat so many $15 sandwiches.
