Thank you to Pierre Noirat for making a French translation for us so quickly - staying up until 1 am local time to get it done!

French (français, pronounced [fʁɑ̃sɛ]) is a Romance language originally spoken in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland, and today by about 350 million people around the world as either a native or a second language,[7] with significant populations in 54 countries.

Check out Pierre’s cool bicycle t-shirt boutique and blog with lots of bicycle goodness (, and for us foreign language-challenged folks, there’s an international version in English ( [Don't quote me on this, but I believe 'vélo' is at least one of the terms for 'bicycle' in French.]
