While in ParisComments

There’s a pause in the Cyclocross action while we’re in Paris and much more about that when we get back.
We rented Velibs and found our way on paths, lanes, and one-way streets open to bikes. It was sunny and 80 degrees.
Near Notre Dame, lovers attached locks to bridges and we thought, “this is way better than looking at a Monet on a wall.
Especially when we joined and rode along with a Rollerblade Critical Mass. There were 3 three thousand French bladers and about 50 bikes. They had a police escort and closed the roads. We were on the South Bank of the Seine.
Short of another French revolution breaking out while we’re in town, can’t think of better photo ops. I’ve got an Olympus E-P3 with me on test assignment for Pix Magazine. I’ve dumped 1,000 photos so far from the camera and uploaded a dozen to G+ and Flickr. Those are out of the camera from the iPad.
Back to Cross, see how a Pro takes a beer hand up at 2:57. See more of that refined technique this weekend when we’re back in Seattle.
