Our bikes all arrived in Paris ahead of us so we had to retrieve from a special office on the side of Gare du Nord. We cycled along a few km of shared space with oblivious pedestrians before arriving at Notre Dame, then into the Paris Easter rush on the proper roads – super congested and lots of cars and buses jostling for space.
With a quick stop at the Eiffel Tour we cycled on through the Bois du Boulogne, past Longchamps and up a long hill to St Cloud. The led us through the beautiful arboretum and down to Versailles – quite a lot of hard road and stony tracks.
We’re now very pleased to be at our hotel and ready for dinner…
Tomorrow we start the ride to London to raise funds for Arts 4 Dementia – please consider a donation if you can.
