Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Cycling Shops in Paris/Lyon/Nice

Wife and I are leaving for a two-week trip to France. Can anyone suggest a cycling shop in Paris, Lyon, and/or Nice? I'd like to pick up a cycling-related memento of the trip while there.

Many thanks.

Paris is the most on-line city I have ever lived in.
There is an english website for any activity you want to do.
But for starters:
Google maps

The one across the bridge from the parc de boulogne was next to my apartment.

Enjoy

Sadly i don't even remember the street but there is one in downtown paris, nearby an ANIME store, in a corner, probably is the same powersb is talking about. The only thing i have to say is that be prepared to speak french or you will get a nasty attitude from the old dude that works in there if you start asking stuff in English. The other guy that was working there when i went speaks little English and almost fluent in Spanish. Good luck anyways, Parisians are a real PITA sometimes (by personal experience)

Many thanks powers2b and ultraman! I'll be sure to look up the one in parc de boulogne mentioned above. My wife speaks good french and we both speak fluent Spanish, so I hope we can communicate.

I dream of French women every night. I met a sexy French student a summer ago and the few months that I knew her were great. Her and her friend were the just fun to be around, maybe the younger crowd acts different than older generations - probably where the stereotypes have come from.
On a side note they were absolutely convinced that Lance Armstrong dopes.
