Lille is near Roubaix, but here is the most important factory of Btwin:
Btwin-Village. There is a big shop with some particular bikes that you’ll not find in other shops.
Like Commencal bikes! I don’t know why there are this bikes here! Like Create urban bikes.
And specific machines to clean the bikes after the ride.
With one of them I went on a little tour through Lille, to visit the town and the citadel.
I had the chance to try the Schwalbe Mondial tires, because I was thinking I might buy some… but I didn’t like them. These tires are very very heavy, and hard! And have less traction in mud.
Continuing my trip round the citadel:
Had some problems with the tires and the mud. I didn’t have traction! Although the terrain was very flat.
Beautiful structure of Lille’s train station
It’s time to return to Brussles.
