Château de Montfleury, Avressieux - France +++++

Château de Montfleury is a charming place and a magnificent castle. We must say about the part of the museum with historical bicycles: QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY, IS IMPORTANT. Many fakes, remakes, copies, failed imitations .... certainly not the right place for experts.

To celebrate the centenary of the yellow jersey, Tour de France organiser Amaury Sports Organisation (ASO) and the race’s jersey sponsor Le Coq Sportif have announced 20 individual yellow jerseys to be worn during the 2019 Tour de France.

As there is no race leader until the end of the Stage 1, the winner of the opening stage will be then presented with the specially designed stage 2 jersey to wear the following day. Unique images of significant buildings, locations and riders are faintly overlaid onto each of the yellow jerseys so as not to detract from the iconic colour with the first jersey presented featuring The Atomium building in Brussels.

Musée National du Sport, Nice - France +++++

Cycling is particularly well represented in the collections of the National Museum of Sport. Indeed, the museum proposes to find - in its course dedicated to the "Défi sur soi" - the history of cycling and many objects related to the Tour de France thanks to mythical bicycles as well as outfits that belonged to the greatest French cyclists!

Musée des Arts Forains - Paris, France +++++

Just two velocipede carousels remain in the world today. One is in France while the other is part of a traveling collection of vintage amusement park rides. The velocipede carousel in France resides at the Museum of Arts Forains (Museum of Fairground Arts) in Paris' Bercy neighborhood. The museum, opened in 1996, includes colorful jumble of carousels, carnival rides and games from the 1850 to 1930 time period. The beautifully restored pieces were collected by a man named Jean-Paul Favand; His collection is one of the largest private collections in Europe. Luckily for the rest of us, Favand turned his collection into a museum so everyone could enjoy it. Even better, the rides in his collection aren't simply on display, they're still operative. So yes, if you head to the museum, you can pedal his 1885 velocipede carousel [sources: Thomas, Robertson] The museum reported to have been made in 1897 and it was discovered in Belgium around 1940. Two interesting points about his velocipede carousel: while the French carousels all run counterclockwise, this one runs clockwise because it was operated in Great Britain, where that direction was the norm.This velocipede carousel was also featured in the 2011 film "Midnight in Paris," directed by Woody Allen [source: Rohan]. The first big-rounds appeared around 1870 and served as a school for riding bicycles and promoting riding in general.

The museum is open to the public once a year and getting inside for an individual tour is very difficult, almost impossible. After many years the door opened to us so we can share.

Fête Paradiso

The world's other remaining velocipede carousel is part of Fête Paradiso, a similar group ofvintage rides, carousels and various other carnival components. Frenchmen Francis Staub and Régis Masclet, rabid collectors of old carnival rides and art, purchased the pieces and came up with the idea of traveling around the world with them, reminiscent of the carnivals of yesteryear. Fête Paradiso was set up for several weeks at a time in various locales, beginning in 2013 [source: Rohan].
