I like the bikes that connect. The mural.

Looks like my neighborhood here in Portland! I've never seen so man bicycles in one area before except in Europe!! Have a great week, Ciel!

I like this a lot; understated, but effective. And I see a number of bikes got the message. Wish we had more bikes and less cars here!

Jack said...

The real bikes are facing the opposite direction from the mural's bikes. Details, details.

Randy said...

Perfect find.

Well, perhaps not the prettiest place in Versailles but people have to get from here to there.

Is this the official bike park? Usually at train stations there is something more than just chaining them to a railing. Anything to encourage cycling is a good idea.

I wish there was more respect for bicycles (and cyclists) in this part of the world. Interesting that the bikes on the sign are in the opposite direction to the ones on the pavement :)

Simple, essential and very nice. Looking at the bikes below, almost specular...

I like the idea of bikes on a train station mural. Neat find!

Karl Demetz said...

Ha... perfect combination, Ciel!

RedPat said...

Subtle and sophisticated!

There's a Japanese artist, whose name I don't remember off hand, who made his name etching abstract scenes of bicyclists. Your mural reminds me of his work. Has velolib hit Versailles yet? Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Bikes up--bikes down. I think they got the message.

Yes the mural pf Anna Curtis does resemble Anne Frank. MB

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

That is very clever, I like that the row of bike are facing opposing directions.

I keep forgetting how far North you are and that the sun set so much later. Stay cool!

Elenka said...

My ship today and your trains... love them both.

Bikes are big everywhere now, but more so over your way at the moment with Le Tour going on oui!
