The bicycle

I've been getting a lot of questions about the bicycle that I am having built by Arvon Stacey in Tofield Alberta. Although before talking to Arvon I had never heard of this small town 200km east of Edmonton, that I will now have to visit it sometime soon.
As for the bicycle the concept, it is a little hard to imagine from just a verbal description so please have a look at the <a href="http://www.antipodes-expeditions.com/Gallery/Bike-Development/bikedraw">draught drawing</a>. The idea is that with special <a href="http://www.sandsmachine.com/index.html">S+S couplings</a> the bicycle will be able to "break" appart for transport... but this also opens the door to a new concept where the bike will be able to connect with extra attachments to become a tandem bike. Mine is not finished yet but here is a link to <a href="http://www.sandsmachine.com/a_rod_t1.htm">something similar</a> to what I am hoping to get.

Joyeuses Pâques

Bonjour à toute ma famille en France! C'était des drôles de Pâques cette année car toute la famille etait éparpillée dans differents coins. Maman et Maïwenn en France en train de visiter plein de monde. Armel en kayak sur les îles Broken a l'ouest de l'île Vancouver. Maël en train d'étudier pour les cours à Vancouver. Et moi j'etais parti à Whistler avec des amis pour faire du ski. Les condition étaient moyennes... enfin moyennes pour Whistler. Je me suis bien amusé... surtout à regarder (l'équipe de hockey) les Canucks qui ont réussi à gagner deux matchs dans leur finale contre St. Louis. Je n'ai donc pas fait trop de préparatifs pour le voyage ce weekend. Mais je vais m'y remettre cette semaine. Il faut que je commence à contacter mes commanditaires, les médias qui pourraient éprouver un interêt à suivre mon voyage, finir les modifications sur se site ouèb etc... la liste est encore bien longue.
