Waiting for coffee...
I spotted this Alcyon!
As I waited for my cortado I curiously looked to my left and discovered this beautiful Alcyon bike! What a beauty! Of course, you must look pass the obvious rust and imagine a sleek racer from the early 1900s.
The French Alcyon cycling team was associated with a winning tradition. It started in 1906 and spun Tour de France champions; Francois Faber (1909), Octave Lapize (1910), Gustave Garrigou (1911), Odile Defraye (1912), Nicolas Frantz (1927, 1928) and Maurice Ed Waele (1929).
I hope Thomas will, one day, re-store it.
