France, Epinal - Home stay with 2-time kaiyak Olympian, Manuel DelRey and Zoe, with their son (far Right). Bicyclist enthusist, Michel Albert (center), who biked 5,000km in a 33 day France tour alone last June introduced Drew to Zoe, who after hearing about our trip told Drew, ”You are welcome to stay at my house tonight. My boyfriend is dreaming of a world bicycle tour and would love to talk with you. You can eat all of my food!” Amazing people who showered us with food, gifts, and enthusiasm. THANK YOU! Manuel works for the best Kayak school in France, and Zoe works at the City Hall, where Drew met her. Manuel is, actually, already planning a “north pole” bicycle trip from France up through Scandinavia and back for next year…or 3 months of next year.
