In the French version:

"Les restaurants typiquement lyonnais s'appellent les bouchons."

Are they stubs or corks? -phma 17:57, 16 Mar 2004 (EST)

In English we call them bouchons. Of course you can point out that that usually means "cork".  ;) -- Mark 00:57, 17 Mar 2004 (EST)

Translation[edit]

Per the conversation on automatc translation, here is a handy link to the Babelfish of the French version -- the DotM for that site in Jan, so there is a ton of good info...

Note: do not edit the babelfished site by mistake!

Get around[edit]

I had written that bikes could only be rented with a FRENCH Debit/credit card. This has been changed to "European" some months ago by a not authenticated user who I cannot contact now. Has anything changed on this issue in the meantime? Because I tried with all my European debit/credit cards in May with no success and then I asked the Tourist Information office in the City which confirmed that you can only use French cards. Any knowledgeable confirmation/revision to this? This is very important in order not to have people coming to Lyon with too high hopes in getting a bike with this system.

My Visa Electron debit card issued in the Czech republic worked without any problem. -Jkt 16:26, 5 December 2009 (EST)

I used my Barclay's Visa debit card (issued from the UK) earlier this month (July 2010). I ran into some disappointed American students who were unable to use their cards but as noted and explained in further detail on my blog, it's because their cards didn't have chips: http://katrichterwrites.wordpress.com/page/6/
