Bike Tracker?

Several of my friends have emailed me to ask me if the bike is here yet. It is not. I know it has left the UK, and now apparently I need a different tracking number, which I had to request, to see where it is within the US.

You know how each year, NORAD does this thing where they track Santa’s journey around the world?

I want a service like that for my bike:

“Right now, your bike is winging its way to you across Siberia, toward the Bering Sea and down the Alaskan Coast to Seattle, Washington. Your bike is travelling at 500 mph. Wind is westerly at 30mph.”

    If it’s a direct flight from London to Seattle, it doesn’t go over Siberia; it goes close to the north pole, as that’s the shortest route. Still, it started in China, stopped in London, and is on the way to Seattle. Interesting trip.

    Auchen, that’s almost too authentic, given that I just received a package with directions clearly written by that person. I will admit, though, that when oggling Porteurs on French eBay, I ponder my own complete inability to speak French despite passing through six years of training, and I have more sympathy for the beleagured Chinese translators! That said, they keep my bike, I kick their butts.

  4. So frustrating to wait, I know!
    Looking forward to seeing your pics of this bike.

    The shipping company says it’s been “Forwarded for Export” today, but they also said that on Monday, so I don’t know. I just want one bike, you know? Just one.
