    I used to live in across the river from the Bois de Boulogne (great place for bike rides).
    Inside the park there is a horse racing track (Hippodrome).
    The access road around the racetrack is closed on weekends for joggers and cyclists.
    On Saturday and Sunday mornings there are about 60-80 cyclist chasing a moped aound the access road.
    Try and see if you can keep up with them.
    Inside the park there are several lakes and equestrian clubs also.
    Here is a sit about the park:

    Here is a site with a map to the hippodrome lonchamps:

    I would avoid La Defance, North Paris and North East Paris.


    Enjoy

    you still here?

    i've been in paris off and on for a couple of months....only know of one other fixie rider, another yankee ex-messenger....

    cobblestones=sux
    scooters=sux
    ciculation cops=(90euros for running a red light)=super sux

    old-timey ex bike racers looking at you and your brakeless trackbike sideways and then telling you that your bike isn't "manly" enough for paris streets=hella cool
