When I got back downstairs it had quit raining, the sun was shining, and it was beautiful the rest of the day.
After lunch DB said lets get you a helmet and go riding. I said, but you said we wouldn't be riding this time of year and he said, no, I said, don't bother bringing your bike, that's different. And so, I get to use the really high-end Alex Moulton, the one that's made of aircraft stainless steel, with Dura Ace, and with front and back suspension. The stem is completely adjustable fore and aft and in no time we'd made it fit me and off we went, me with a really big grin that just wouldn't quit, riding the streets of Paris again.
We stopped in a bike shop for my new helmet, a Bell Citi model, just right for city riding. They only carry the one dark orange color.
And then we rode over cobble-stoned streets, so much easier on the Moulton, to a block on Blvd. Beau Marchais, where there are several camera stores, each with a different focus: large format, Leica, medium format, Rollei.
Yeah, riding the streets of Paris.
