Vauban veille sur les vélos

Vauban bicycle garage Versailles
Remember when VDP showed you the Tardis bicycle garage? It was here. Well, it has looked like this for quite a while now! That's Sébastien Le Prestre, marquis de Vauban, known simply as Vauban, the foremost military engineer of his age. He is also remembered at nearby Vauban primary school, VDP had shown you its door here.

VDP vous avait montré ce Tardis garage à vélos il y a longtemps, c'était ici. Cela fait maintenant un bail qu'il a changé de look avec Vauban à l'honneur, et se situe d'ailleurs non loin de l'école primaire Vauban, dont VDP vous montrait la porte ici.

I have never seen a bicycle garage before. It would be a great idea here since we have so many college kids riding bikes around town. This one looks nice.

Better than ours. Ours are just plain boxes.

bonne idée !

I prefer this version of the garage. Although Vauban might have wanted to protect it with a fortified wall around it.

I like the new look with a more historic frame of reference.

That's a very elegant looking place to park your bike!

The only cycle garages we see here tend to be caged structures with locks.

RedPat said...

It looks quite civilized!

How cool that the look has changed so much! I like the idea of a bicycle garage. Seems so sensible!
