The French love cycling and support the activity very well as well as hosting the worlds largest annual sporting event (Le Tour de France). Jacques Anquetil was the first cyclist to win the Tour de France five times, in 1957 and from 1961 to 1964. I spotted this classic bike leaning against a wall in Le Croisic, Brittany.
I love the signs you get for cycle lanes and routes. They are all so wired and different. You hardly ever see the same one twice even in the same department (county).
