No, and it doesn't get any C&Ver, either.

I'll bet you could fit three bikes inside a 2CV. Just take seats out and load the cycles in front-to-back, not across.
Enjoyed the video, thanks! I admire joie de vivre.

I got a set when Eyjafjallajökull stranded me in Paris. It was unseasonably warm and my hostel was on a canal, I watched people play it all day. Can't say I have ever played but it was a nice souvenir.

Well, if you ever find your way to NYC, we'll have to schedule a game. It's good fun. Especially if you drink pastis while you play.

My bikes in this video...except it's the one with the motor. '72 BMW R75. I'm assuming the cameraman rode pillion on it.

That's the type of event we need on this side of the pond.
