CYF 065 — mercredi 17 mars 2021 — Coup de pouce vélo avec Fabrice Lorant
When the first lockdown ended in France, in May 2020, the government created the « coup de pouce », the little help if you prefer. It’s a financial help to encourage people to use their bike more often.
This period was incredible for the use of bikes in cites. New cycles lanes were created in a few days around Paris. We could see teams of workmen painting the yellow lines everywhere. Including in our neighbourhood.
Last week, a neighbour of mine, Bin, and a friend of mine, Maryam, both suggested that I use the « coup de pouce » for my bike. To benefit from this measure I called Fabrice, the repairman they both knew.
My appointment was this morning. Fabrice is a repairman that comes to your home. He has everything with him.
When we met, he happily told me that he would do his best to improve the brakes of my vintage Peugeot bike. This is where the episode starts today.
My name is Laetitia, I’m French, I live just outside Paris and I share with you a small slice of my daily life here in France. I have also been running the podcast One Thing In A French Day since 2006
