London-Paris cycling route planned

Just in time for the 2012 Olympics in London, a cycling route linking London and Paris by ferry is planned, according to an article in "The Avenue Verte, connected by the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry, will be the first designated bike path between the two cities."

While the route will, for the most part, avoid traffic and use existing cycle paths, incuding the Tour de la Manche on the English side and the Avenue verte on the French side.

Are we looking for a bicycle connection between Canada and the US anytime soon?

I've been having the normal arm pump problems and got a wrist exerciser called Gripstik over the internet. sure seems to help .
i know that arm pump is caused by a bunch of different things like bad form ,being out of shape and bike set up, but after using
it for a week or two, i realy was able to do more practice laps and that exrtra seat time really seemed to help me keep the speed up
on the last laps on sunday. I also purposly used it prior to getting on the bike and it forced me to warm up,something that
I was not doing in the past. that makes sense,because my arm pump was always worst , starting cold ,on the first ride of day. now,
I' m kind of warmed up and don't have to waste the first practice session fighting the pump.
