Translation: « Bréau, the able cycling champion, recently tried a cycle-based, air-powered aviette. The results probably didn't meet the expectations as we have not heard of these experiments since. »
Mr. Henri Bréau designed a flying-bicycle called Avicycle;

BRÉAU (New manufacturer)
in 1934, Henri Bréau ex champion of France cyclist, tried on the autodrome of Montlhéry a aviette, it is
say a bicycle fitted with a monoplane wing staysailed from below and driven by a two-bladed propeller,
named "Avicycle”.The cyclist was protected from the wind (!) by a transparent fairing.

From TU 211,

here is a flying-bicycle,designed by Captain Douet ,

At the 1935 Lépine Competition, the captain Douet presented a bicycle equipped with two offset wings,
the front wing being of "parasol" formula while the rear wing was carried by a beam. This machine was
meant to break Gabriel Poulain's record . Editor ignores results practices obtained by this machine.
