I’ve been busy taking photos throughout this beautiful Spring, so I thought I’d put together this post to share some of the pauses I’ve taken on my bike over the past couple of months just for fun. I don’t go everywhere by bike – not yet anyway – but on nice days I love to take my bike around, usually with particular destinations in mind and sometimes just to joyride. Just a few years ago I was so intimidated to ride in Paris, but Mayor Hidalgo and bike-friendly groups have made a huge effort to make the city more bike friendly over the last few years, making it more and more pleasant to cycle. As always, I recommend taking a bike tour or a Vélib‘ when you visit Paris. There’s no better way to see the city.

Enjoy this tour of Paris à vélo! 🚲 And if you’re looking to purchase any of the photos and you don’t see them here, just email me.

Notre Dame Area


There’s no doubt about it that Paris is beautiful in the Spring, but I remain pretty partial to Spring in my hometown of Kansas City. The city’s beautiful flowering trees are something that make me homesick every year. Looking for Notre Dame? I saved the those photos for their own post, which you can see here.
