Lie in this morning as we didn’t set off till 9.30 by which time the rain had stopped. We detoured to have a look at the racecourse before setting off on some steep climbs towards Paris.

We passed the Stade de France and had a pleasant journey in to the centre of Paris. We took our lives in our hands and cycled around the Arc de Triomphe and then down the Champs Elysee.
