This morning I had a chance to walk down what has become one of my favorite boulevards in Paris, the Rue de Lyon. This street has a high concentration of bike, scooter, motorcycle and camera shops…so it is my kind of place. I also love admiring the Parisian talent for great storefronts and window displays.

Paris is full of and practical vintage mixte bikes, most with the classicly elegant double top tube design. Many of these have clearly lived a long and hard life in the city and are still rolling with all original parts and looking very rakish.

And there is the Parisians themselves…ever stylish whether they are on foot, bike, skateboard or the electric scooters that seem to be the transport mode of choice this season.
