It’s not high-end, so Bob may bitch at my posting this, but Sunday was such a glorious day here in Paris that I decided to do something a little different and take a fat tire bike tour of Paris.

What a great alternative way to get around Paris, so much easier on the feet!  Sunday I must say is a good day to cycle around Paris, as there isn’t much traffic, so I felt very safe. Our guide when crossing at the lights, always made sure that it was safe enough to cross which was reassuring, and we cycled most of the time on bicycle tracks.

We cycled and stopped by the main sites including the Eiffel Tower and the Champs de Mars, the Ecole Militaire and Les Invalides and over the Alexander III bridge. 

We stopped at Place de la Concorde and had a picnic lunch in the Tuileries Gardens and saw the Louvre Museum pyramids.

Our guide was very informative and very American, by that I mean, excellent customer service and over the top enthusiasm, with plenty of smiles!

After 4 hours, my bottom was fine, the bike was very comfortable and easy to use and as the day was so glorious I could have stayed on for another half-day…
