How to Pronounce Pannier
Pannier is one of the most mispronounced words in the bicycling lexicon and its origins are often misunderstood. Where does the word come from? Is it a French or English word? What is the correct pronunciation? We settle it once and for all in this video and get a little help from Merriam-Webster.

I’m been thinking and researching light touring and liked your setup that you used during you Central Coast adventure. After this video, at least I will not have to guess the pronunciation and not sound like a noob. Do you have suggestions for low rider panniers? Since I am new, I have a mid-level budget for low rider racks and panniers. By the by, do you have plans to do the Deerfield Dirt-Road Randonnee; been around since the ’90s but became an organized event in the mid 2000s.

This was a great video and very interesting. I enjoyed the part about pelton and platoon and the origins. I do think its funny that he kept saying Pannier with an “a” sound like Pan and you still pkept saying it with a long “a” like Pain all the way to the end :). I know… “its bad manners”… lol. Seriously, great job though!

Who cares how someone pronounces a word as long as you understand what they are talking about. I think it’s fun that we all don’t pronounce things the same way. Local/regional dialects are cool. Just say no to the language police!
