BIKE TRIP PARIS-PARC DE SCEAUX
On Wednesday, July 26
The splendid "parc (and château) de Sceaux" was built by Colbert, finance minister of Louis XIV, at some 14 km from Paris. Twenty five (good) bikes have been rented for those willing to ride from Paris to the park and back (the park is large and a bike is appropriate for the visit). The price is 100F; the insurance of LC 2000 applies to the trip (not in case the bike is stolen, but the bike is provided with a lock). Most of the way from Paris to the park is called the green strip ("la coulée verte"), and is pleasant, without cars, except for a few crossings. The ride is flat, except for spots which are short enough to be climbed up with the bike on your side, if you find it too steep. Hence familiarity with biking is the only prerequisite.
Departure: 2:30pm on Place de Catalogne, 200 m behind the Montparnasse
skyscraper and railway station (metro: Montparnasse). Bikes to be obtained
Returning the bike: same place, at 6:30pm (6pm if the weather is awful; but the decision on this will be taken at 2:30pm).
