G’day all – I’m looking forward to experiencing the Paris Respire on our one Sunday in Paris in late October – we’ll have our own bicycles . I’ve checked out the paris.fr/loisirs/… web site with all the maps and all . Didn’t realise the areas covered were so extensive , including where we are staying in Montmartre . I’m thinking we may be able to do several of these areas , including the Quartier des berges de la Seine and the Canal St Martin , and others if possible .
Does anyone have any thoughts ideas , experiences , comments on this activity ? Pros & Cons? We’re prepared to spend most of the day taking advantage of the closed roads . Is it easy to cycle between the different areas ? Being Sunday and with some major areas closed to traffic , does this mean there is additional traffic congestion on the roads which are open ? Is the idea as idyllic as it sounds ? ie no cars and just pedalling away enjoying the areas of Paris (given there will be lots of cyclists , rollers , prams etc ) In any case this was one of the first activities I had planned for our time in Paris . Thanks all for any responsesEdited: 29 July 2014, 10:30
