|I've seen Velo- news, wear, & gear sites/stuff.
So, what does the 'Velo' in all this VeloStuff mean?
Just curious, really.
ps. This board could use a VeloHaiku. :)

|Vélo has same root as véloce; same in french and italian for "speedy", fast
Vélo comes from ancient term vélocipède: vélo and pède
Speedy on/using your feet.
