Paris-Île-de-France

La réputation touristique de Paris n'est plus à faire, mais sait on assez que l'Île-de-France, aujourd'hui Paris Région qui l'entoure, est une destination française des plus agréables à découvrir à vélo ? L'Île-de-France est dotée d'un patrimoine remarquable : châteaux et palais royaux ou impériaux, villages et villes historiques, églises et cathédrales merveilleuses... La nature est également bien présente avec d'immenses forêts, de puissantes rivières et autres canaux qui sont autant de terrains de jeux alléchants pour les cyclistes. Et, Paris étant Paris, de nombreux grands itinéraires y convergent, tels que l'Avenue Verte London-Paris ou la Véloscénie Paris Le mont Saint-Michel à vélo, et bientôt bien d'autres décrits sur ce site...

    Along the final section of the Avenue Verte, you switch from the Oise to the Seine at Conflans-Ste-Honorine, an historic boatmen's port at the confluence of the two rivers. You then follow the meanders in the Seine eastwards, crossing the Forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye to Maisons-Laffitte. After enjoying a further meander in the great river, you join the Promenade Bleue from Rueil-Malmaison to Colombes, a route paying homage to the Impressionists who painted river scenes along here so memorably. As you cycle beside the Seine, passing through riverside parks and close to islands in the river, you can still feel the atmosphere the Impressionists enjoyed. Crossing to the multicultural cathedral city of Saint-Denis, the route then takes you into the French capital via stretches of canal traditionally used by boatmen before you arrive beside the Seine in central Paris. You end your trip on the wonderful Ile de la Cité, outside the cathedral of Notre-Dame.
