Château de Versailles
On Monday, July 20, I cycled out to Versailles. (The national library was closed that morning.) It was only 16 miles from our apartment in Paris, but traffic was stop-and-go from the 10th to the Porte Dauphine. After that there wasn't much traffic but it was uphill almost all the way. Somewhere on the way, I got a puncture in my tire. It was a slow leak but the tire was flat by the time I got back to Paris (I took the train back). But it was a fun ride nonetheless!
