Saturday August 27th 2011 : Bike Ride in Paris By Night!!!!
Posted August 19th, 2011 - 1:13 pm by from Le Plessis-Robinson, France (Permalink)
Hi All!

Most of you might have already enjoyed a bike ride through Paris by night. This is pretty cool, right?
What is new in this proposition is :
- You wont be drunk (at least not at the beginning...).
- You wont come back home but will be part of great tour through Paris.
- You won't need to give a 20 euros bill to ride with tourists...
- You wont need to ask another drunk guy how to go to "porte de vanves" for there, because someone will take care of this.
- And most important : you ll be with (i hope) a lot of cool people!

Here is the round trip i propose. Let me know if you see nice spots that i skipped...

I imagine It would start around 22 pm and finish around 2, 3 am...:) let me know!
Of course it would be possible to join the group during the trip!

If this kind of event interests enough people to create a event page :)

Dear Jullien,

I'm a Brazilian journalist, I'm in Paris with my bike and I'll love to join the night bike ride in Paris. What time is it going to start? Can I interview you before or after the ride?

best,

Natália.

I don't have any lights too ! Nope in fact I have lights (a pair of knogs) but their batteries are used...

And at 2 or 3 AM there are no trains anymore, so it's gonna be hard for me to go back home...

If anyone can borrow me lights too and has a solution for after the ride (like waiting on the train in a bar or I don't know), I'm in too ! ;)

Thanks

I checked the weather. It should be ok but a bit cold.
So take a windbreak and it should be perfect for the ride!

Posted August 27th, 2011 - 2:58 pm by from Nantes, France (Permalink)
Is the ride starting at 9:30 PM or is it just for meeting and the ride is starting at 10:00 PM ?

Posted August 27th, 2011 - 6:27 pm by from Nantes, France (Permalink)

Want to join but does anyone have some advice on where to buy some used bike in Paris? One stolen already and Velib is not a longterm solution. Thnx!

Posted August 27th, 2011 - 5:33 pm by from Nantes, France (Permalink)
Hi Silvia,
You can try stores like Bicloune ( www.bicloune.fr/ ) or Cycles Nicolas Ehrhart ( http://cyclesnicolasehrhart.over-blog.com/ Recent shop, very nice guy ! ;) ) and then maybe Leboncoin.fr , Ebay or other so called "bourse aux vélos"... (:

Et ca c'est du compte-rendu bien écrit!

Posted August 28th, 2011 - 5:55 pm by from Paris, France (Permalink)
Merci Julien pour cette très belle sortie. J'ai vu que tu n'as pas tardé pour nous en organiser une nouvelle. Je ne pourrai pas y participer car je serai en voyage en Indonésie (oui j'ai quand même un peu de chance).

Très bien aussi le compte rendu d'Olivier, on s'y croirait c'est vrai vrai que nous avons bravé les difficultés et relevés fièrement le défi tel de preux chevaliers sur leurs montures de métal au milieu des acclamations de la foule en délire.

Bien amicalement, bonne semaine et à bientôt
All the best for the comming week and see you soon.
Pierre
