Buck : Tour de France in Lille

Buck the system!
(Remembering the Stones singing “Star star“, also known as “Starbucker“)
Today the Tour the France passes here.
In Lille.

Shit! (Merde! Comme vous voulez) : at the supermarket I can’t even find a place to park my bicycle!

… here one can smoke a cigarette

At the stadium where the Tour de France passes today, I counted about some 100 places to park bicycles. This multi-use stadium “Stade Pierre Mauroy” has a capacity of 50,000 people.  And in the end about 100 places to park bicycles. Project has been costing €618 million.

Although this bicycle parking is a vast improvement, in comparision to bicycle parking at the above mentioned supermarket: Buck the system! (“Fique le système” ?)

I like improving added value of information systems. Or cycling. Either be in a garden.
