A Paris Balcony View with Cyclists

Here’s 60 seconds of a Paris intersection. It was a lovely fall day on the first floor of a hotel in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood.

October is a good time to visit because the crowds are light, temps fair, and the air fares cheap. I counted 6 different bikes and typical for the other neighborhoods I visited.

Not seen are the fixed-gear and single speed bikes so many Parisians ride.

While I wasn’t in Paris to write about urban biking, velo couture and what not, I did take photos of the locals.

And, when the temps dropped from the high 70s to the low 60s, the coats and scarves came out.

It was lovely and we saw plenty of Parisians cycling.

We rode out in the country too and back in Seattle, I’m editing the photos for that story.
