Cruising Paris

Today we toured Paris by bicycle hosted by Fat Tire Bike Tours, an Austin-based company. We began of course at the The Eiffel Tower then biked over to Napoléon's Tomb. Onward to Musée D'Orsay, the Louvre, a cafe in the Tuileries Gardens for a lunch and beer, then the Champs-Elysées. We also the Ecole Militaire, Rodin Museum, Les Invalides, Alexander III Bridge, Grand and Petit Palais, Place de la Concorde, UNESCO and more! The guides were hilarious (also from Austin) and our fellow cruisers were a fun-loving bunch. It was an amazing time mainly because we were in Paris, the weather was perfect and we were on bikes.
