Thought I'd open this one early. Forecast is rain and 75kph winds. Ouch.
Question to US readers (about a weird claim in a French book about cycling in the US)
Hello, In a French book just out by Frederic Héran, a chapter starts with the claim than more than half of the Americans can't ride a bike, while almost all the French can. No translation problem here, I promise ("Les Français savent presque tous rouler à bicyclette (contre moins de la moitié des Américains)", p.126, "Le retour de la bicyclette", F. Heran). He really means that if you put a few adult Americans on a bike, more than half of them on average will fall instantly because they didn't learn how to ride a bike.
