From the 1870 velocipede to the 2008 Paris-Beijing bicycle, there is more than a century of cycle evolution which is exhibited in this amazing place. Pernes les Fntaines pays a fitting tribute to Paul de Vivie (1853-1930), inventor of cyclo-tourism, forerunner of the derailleur and a genius inventor.
