vélo - pronounced vay-low, refers to a bike/bicycle.
(note: a word that you should definitely be familiar with if you plan on watching the tour de france this summer, as i do!)
1. i read about lance armstrong's return to competitive cycling in vélonews.
2. i'm going to the bike shop to pick up some gear for my vélo.
3. compared to many competitive road bikes, cervélo bikes have an excellent track record for performance and durability.
