A Paris cycling adventure

Stop and let them cross

You slow down and give the pedestrian some space to cross. You look over your shoulder to see if the car beside you is following suit, and sure enough, it’s coming to a stop as well. You’re impressed with the lack of honking — motorists are either awfully courteous or resigned to the fact that they don’t own the road here in Paris.

Continuing on, you’ve reached Place des Ternes. There’s a lovely market stall selling flowers in the middle of this roundabout, and a few classy bistros with patios framing the intersection.

Up ahead, there’s Boulevard de Courcelles, which will take you to the beautiful Parc Monceau. Alternately, you can turn right to take Rue du Faubourg St. Honoré toward the centre of town.

Ride to Parc Monceau or Turn down Rue du Faubourg St. Honoré
