Riding in France

I and two other mates had a 5 day trip around France in June.

Traveling through a small town, slightly lost due to road diversions, we were stopped by two french plod bikes.

We were told that we all drove over a stop sign and we were fined on the spot!

Fortunately the plod were in a good mood and only fined the front bike (28 euros). So for anyone who's new to traveling in France, be aware- stop means stop!!
