Vintage Bike Ride video

A vintage bike ride. What an awesome idea!
Because I could not say it any better, C & P from the web site:
"Love vintage bicycling outfits, and vintage bikes? Who doesn’t. Throw in some beautiful French countryside, old towns, and landmarks, and you’ve got a pretty beautiful bike ride (and video). Here’s a video ad for such a bike ride (love it)"

Had to double take and view a few times to convince my self that this was not an OLD Film re-mastered. Few hints like a modern style cycle helmet in the onlookers- modern sunglasses on a rider and a slick tyre that looks a bit modern for an older bike.

But trust the French in that even though this is a modern event--They still have to bribe the participants with a glass of wine.

This does look fun. I think the wine break seems fun. ..and Stapfam, it is not just the French. Men have been trying to bribe women with a glass wine for thousands of years. The wise cyclist enjoys the wine, thanks the hopeful briber, and pedals neatly away.

I can almost read French. My take is it is not too late to sign up for 2012.

Good eye. Due to my first person interpretation training at the museum, I'm a stickler for those things.

Nit-picking aside, that is a very well done piece. I wish it was longer.
