Welcome to “I Cycle!”


My personal site about cycling.

Here you’ll find information about cycling, parts, touring, bike commuting, etc… I don’t ride my bicycle for speed, but to see more, to relax and to enjoy.

If you would like to participate, you’re free to react and registration is free and just informal.
