french newcomer

Bonjour to all of you. I'm a middle-aged (46) french rider, living in Lyon. I was a mid-and long- range tourer in myearly days, now getting back to the roads, especially mountain roads. I'm interested in vintage bikes, fixing and riding them, but i also ride a brand new Bianchi all-Carbon, and am found of technical novelties. I live and work downtown, except for the week-end when i go back to the country (low mountains up to 3000ft).
I'm an expert in veteran to 70' motorbikes, especially french makes, of course. I take much interest in visiting some north-american websites, such as Sheldon Brown's... As i rode my bicycle trough many regions in France, perhaps i shall be able to answer to some questions of yours.

Bonjour a vous, monsieur.

I have met you already in the Classic & Vintage Forum--very interesting information about Limongi--so I do not need to send you over there .

However, photos are always welcome in the C & V forum!

Welcome to BF!

Bienvenue, Limongifan!

I have a beloved '84 Schwinn LeTour myself!

BF is the best bicycle forum in the world. You will find everything you need to know about bicycles here, as well as many friends. Do stop by the Foo forum, where we socialize beyond bicycles, and get to know each other.

Un mot: j'habitais il y a vingt années en Belgique comme étudiante. J'avais y commencé un tour de Belgique, mais il fallait arrêter parce que je n'avais plus de temps ni d'argent. J'ai envie d'y aller et le finir, peut-être en 2008, sinon cette année-ci! J'ai également envie de faire plusiers petits tours en France, surtout dans le nord, pas de Calais. Ma meilleure amie du monde, elle habite là-bas. J'ai une apartement à Vienne, et j'y aurai bientôt un vélo.

Bonjour et bienvenue,

En plus de quelques Français, il y a aussi plusieurs Canadiens sur ce site. J'ai peu d'expertise sur la France, davantage sur notre pays.

Welcome here.
