It's time to start cycling. The day dawns gray, threatening rain. Ivan and Marie are still asleep. I get off my stuff all in silence. On the sidewalk ready to start the bike. The "pannier" higher in the rear rack. Upon him the tripod, sleeping bag, tent and air mattress. In front of the rack, the lower pannier and a plastic bag with warm clothes and some food, mainly fruit and sandwiches.

All done, I notice the rear tire down and trying to calibrate it, the bike falls, breaking valve. Before they begin, I have a flat tire.

Ivan appears in time to say good-bye. It begins to drizzle. Are 9:07. Time to ride.
