Gitane bicycles (Cycles Gitane) have been synonymous with French bicycle racing. No other brand can boast a greater racing pedigree than Gitane: with 11 Tours de France, 2 Giro d’Italias, the Vuelta a’Espana, numerous World Championships on the road and on the track, and at least one land speed record, Gitane bicycles have won just about every major road race over its storied history. Aside from its prestige on the race course, the company was a huge contributor to the “bike boom” in the USA during the early 1970's and along with some other manufacturers, introduced the first truly affordable lightweight racing bicycles to the American public. Many bike racers’ first bike was a Gitane and Gitane helped to get Americans back onto bicycles by making them affordable and easy to use.
