Le Velo

Bought a bike, which was a huge pain, bikes are about twice the price here, and there are a million people looking for them at the beginning of the year. Fortunately I found an old guy 2 miles outside of town, had to jog out there, who was selling old but well maintained bikes at good prices.

Ended up getting a blue Peugeot cruiser from the 80's. It cost £85, which was considered a steal here for anything that rides, and this thing rides like a rock. According to Chris, the old guy selling bikes, you can't go wrong with French engineering. He was old enough that he probably remembers the Hundred Year's war, so I think he was making a joke.
