Paul de Vivie (1853-1930), who wrote as ‘Velocio’, was an early advocate of the bicycle, supposed inventor of the derailleur and the father of French cycle touring. Here are his seven commandments for the wise cyclist: 1. Keep your stops short and few. 2. Eat before you’re hungry, drink before you’re thirsty. 3. Never get too tired to eat or sleep. 4. Add a layer before you’re cold, take one off before you’re hot. 5. Lay off wine, meat and tobacco on tour. 6. Ride within yourself, especially in the first hour. 7. Never show off.
