2001 bicycle trip Auxerre to Venice 
Outside the Hotel Bourbon, Paris, where we stayed in Paris.  Conveniently located near le Musee Rodin, this small hotel was a real bargain: a double (with toilet and shower) with an adjoining single room (with wash basin) was a bit over US $100 (when the dollar was stronger than the Euro).

View from off the bike path to Cluny, where we camped (no hotels; it was graduation weekend), and it rained, and I got wet being in the lower part of the tent.

Parker on the road between Dijon and Beaune in the Burgundy wine region.  If his bike looks loaded it's because he's holding two bikes while I take the photo.  It was overcast, good cycling weather, rarely raining but often threatening, and coolish
