My ride to Paris…

with one comment

A week or so ago I went for my annual trip to Paris.

This year I rode from Dieppe to Paris. Paris is my second home, I go to see friends and also to catch the finale of the Tour.

The Champs Elysee is the best place to capture the riders of the Tour De France doing their thing.

The atmosphere is amazing, people stand 10-20 deep just to catch a glimpse of a blur that lasts 5 seconds as the peleton goes by… including me!

The make 8 laps and they race around Paris, so you get to see them 16 times on the Champs Elysee as they go up towards the Arc De Triumph, then take the hair pin to come back down.

You know when they are coming too… there is a constant cheer that follows them, but for us it fades in and out.

Just like when you go straight through those bleeping traffic lights at speed…

Take a look at the photos below, click on the flickr link for more.
