Cycling 1:39:06  32.3 km (3:04 / km)
A Sunday in the middle of August is the quietest tahtparis streets will ever be and so i make it an annual event to head out for a "Tour de Paris", cycling down many streets that I wouldn't normally contemplate riding on for enjoyment. I normally head out around 7am to get the full benefit of empty streets, but left it a little late this year and so it wasn't quite so tranquil and there were sufficient numbers of cars and tourists around that I really needed to keep alert. So not quite as peaceful as I had hoped but still a nice ride around parts of the city - Champs Elysees, blvd St Germain, Places de la Bastille and Republique, Notre Dame, rue du Rivoli, place de la Concorde, Tour Eiffel. Knee felt okay but my thumb was very sore and I felt every bump in the road (especially over the cobbles). This operation will take some time to recover from. A good first ride on the bike since teh St Moritz debacle.
