Discover more than a century of the evolution of the cycle here, including the technical progression of racing bikes.

It is more than a century of the evolution of the cycle that is exhibited here. From the grand bi or tricycle of 1880 to the bicycle of Paris-Beijing 2008, passing by the racy hikers of the best couturiers of the sixties and the historical tandem of the first paid holidays of 1936.

The technical evolution of racing bikes also has its place: the Fageot of 1895 with fixed wheels and tyres of bandages, the Colnago of 1973, all Campagnolo, the entirely brazed-soldered frame of the 1914 Tour de France Alphonse Thomann. An educational tour dedicated to "the little queen" that will delight the curiosity of some and will meet the expectations of experienced cyclists.
