Not sure French riders would have done the same.


A bit off topic, but your post reminded me of it... I took my '70s road bike over to Brittany some time in the early 2000s. I locked it up in the market square of some town while I did some shopping. When I came back there was a middle-aged bloke leaning over it, examining it. I assumed he was French and that my French wasn't going to be good enough to have a meaningful conversation, but also, it was so apparent that my bike had sort of transfixed him and vibed him back thirty years, that I didn't want to break the spell. We had some brief eye contact when I walked up, silently took the D-lock off, put the front wheel back in and went on my way.

It's nice when that happens... I hope he's OK..

..alternatively, he might have just been thinking along the lines of: "Why has this buffoon locked a thirty year old bike to the information board in the market square? Is it conceptual art? Is it a protest? :)
