    I am going to europe for my spring break and I was wondering how much trouble it would be to lug my
    bike around on the transfer from amsterdam to florence on the train. I would really like to ride
    once in italy, but I'm kinda worried about my bike being pilfered. Also, anyone now anything about
    the 2003 paris nice? i can;t find the'03 website, just the '02.

    thanks,

    RObert

    Dear Robert,

    Hauling your bike from Amsterdam to Florence shouldn't be that bad. Are you going to be stopping in
    France to cycle there (advised). Not knowing what your plans are it is a bit tough to comment on
    exactly what you should look out for while traveling by train.

    Re. the Paris-Nice - Wonderful race by the way which does not get enough coverage in the US, in my
    opinion (along with Paris-Roubaix) - what do you want to know? Here is some information :

    Prologue Sunday March 9th - Issy-les-Moulineaux (ici les moules - inside joke) Indi T.T. - 4.8km

    Stage 1 Monday March 10th Auxerre - Parray le Monial 191km

    Stage 2 Tuesday March 11th La Clayette - Saint Etienne
    182.5 km

    Stage 3 Wednesday March 12th Le Puy en Velay - Pont du gard
    183.5 km

    Stage 4 Thursday March 13th Source Perrier
    184.5km

    Stage 5 Friday March 14th Aix-en-Provence - Toulon
    185.5km

    Stage 6 Saturday March 15th Toulon - Cannes
    186.5km

    Stage 7 - Arrival Sunday March 16th Nice - Nice 160km (5 "cols" to climb!)

    Let me know if you need more info.
