“I am a bike messenger here in Paris, but I am not racing.”

Notes: Paris is an ideal city for bike messengers. Or anyone with a  bike. The city is small enough to understand and populated enough to make travel by cars an impossible activity. This was my first time in Paris with a bicycle. It should have been my tenth. You can cover so much in a few hours, zig-zagging about the city, taking in landmarks, checking out the various arrondissements.

I will go back soon. The bike is going with me.
