Totally Frenched Out

As a non-creative person, other people's creativity never ceases to amaze me.  I just saw a tweet for a "Beret & Baguette" bike event happening this weekend in Paris.  The goal is twofold - to promote the "retro culture" and biking, so folks are encouraged to dress up in their finest retro gear and ride on a vintage bicycle.  The dress code is "habits de la France d'entre deux guerres", or clothing from the time period between WWI and WWII.

The event will take place over two days, with a ride happening both Saturday and Sunday, and there's also a vintage ball being held Saturday night in the 3rd at Workshop Paris.

If you don't have a bike, Holland Bikes is offering a 10% discount on their rentals, making the cost 13.50€ for one day or 27€ for the weekend. 

We're going to be out of town this weekend, but if not, I actually might have gone to check out the bike ride - it must be pretty cool to see a bunch of people riding around looking like they stepped out of a time capsule, especially with Paris as their background.
