Local law
In France the wearing of bicycle helmets is not compulsory for adults, but for your own safety we recommend you to wear it. The helmet is mandatory for children under 12 years, both if cycling or just passenger.
Cyclists have to wear a reflective vest when cycling out of the towns within 30 mins after sunset to 30 mins before sunrise as well as in tunnels.

Our bikes are available in different sizes and frames:
- Touring bike 27-gear Shimano Deore
