Ooooooh...many models to choose from!
Ginnie Hart: At least many colors, Ray? I guess for many of us that's more important than anything! smile

This is a great picture. LOVE the colours and the reflections. Tour the France used to me important to me, now it almost does nothing for me. The only thing what is great is the French broadcast shows a lot of the country along the tour.
The tour goes to a few places I have been, Vallon-Pont-d'Arc https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vallon-Pont-d%27Arc and Morzine... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morzine
A nice tribute to a great happening.
Ginnie Hart: I always love the point in Paris when you see Joan of Arc but, yes, the towns and countryside side shown throughout the race are fabulous. Because of all the drug scandals along the way, however, I'm afraid the race isn't what it once was, sadly.
This is so wonderful!! How great to get such strong reflections along with the bikes!
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to see, Elizabeth, and to immediately think of the Tour de France. smile Thanks.
Yup... I like this image a lot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jacquelyn.

A Bike Friday with a difference - nice for Alan, of course, on his beg day
Ginnie Hart: I have just added to my text "Just in time for dear Alan to start his own Retirement Tour!" I wish I had thought of that before. smile

Intriguing Ginnie - you would never use the word PUKY on a product in the UK
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Chris. I'd probably never use it on any product anywhere! smile

Alan will be pleased to see this fine photo- I have to look in my dictionary for the word 'pucky'.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. Believe it or not, PUKY bikes are made in Germany!!! https://www.puky.net/

Jolies couleurs !
JP
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, JP. Thanks.
Wonderful colours alignement Ginnie! D-day will be tommorrow.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. The Tour isn't as exciting for many of us as it once used to be before all the drug scandals. But Astrid and I LOVE watching it to see all the wonderful overviews (usually by helicopter?) of the French countryside, as well as the famous landmarks in Paris.
I thought you could only send ecard sat first Ginnie, so I sent one. I hope the postman brings it to you soon. I must be half asleep not to see the comments.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Wake up, Chad! But, yes, I got your ecard AND now your comment. Thank you. Two for the price of one. smile
Funny use of the word Puke, mind you to some Brexit means happiness
Ginnie Hart: PUKY by any other name, I guess? I Googled it and found out it's a German company. smile
Excellent reflection shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.
What a wonderful and mysterious shot. Well done, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. It hopefully leaves much for Alan's imagination. smile
The reflections make this pic' Ginnie, a bold mix.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. Hopefully Alan has plenty of room ahead for his imagination!
very cool shot, Ginnie, among your best. i have done a fair bit of window shopping for bikes in Venlo myself. fascinating!
Ginnie Hart: How sweet of you, Ayush. Now my head is way too big. smile
This must be to get Alan in the mood for Le Tour, on his blog says he intends to watch the whole thing live on TV.
Ginnie Hart: It's funny how everything is dovetailing in the right way, Brian. smile

Hhheee! I will be having a rather more relaxed tour, no doubt featuring frequent stops for teashops smile Thanks Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Invite me to go with you to the tea shops from time to time, Alan. I, too, am retired, remember! smile

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Alan could start the Tour de Scumsville

I don't need to say anything on the theme Ginnie ... smiles
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you don't, Richard. smile
Le tour has begun.
But where are we heading to?
Nexit? wink
Ginnie Hart: I saw that they were at Mont St. Michel's yesterday, LC, which Astrid and I have had the good fortune to visit. That's what I love about the TdeF...seeing all the beautiful landmarks!
Those are nice colourful bikes.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Michael. For all us kids!

Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Robin. Thank you.
