Biking in the Bois de Vincennes

The weather is turning colder so we wanted to take advantage of the fine weather earlier this week to take a bicycle ride.

We live near the Bois de Vincennes on the southeast edge of Paris. The Bois (woods) is huge - about three times the size of Central Park in NYC. It offers several miles of trails for walkers, runners, equestrians, and cyclists. It has four lakes, a zoo (currently closed), a botanical garden, and a chateau.

Patrice is the proud owner of a new second-hand bicycle - a surprise to friends and family who know him better as a motorized guy. He got his first motorized cycle - a Solex - at the age of 11.

So the fact that he is pedaling and then carrying both our bikes up and down the steep stairs to the cellar means he must really love me, right?
