Easily accessible trails for the inhabitants of Paris
Although life in a big city has many advantages, the opportunity for practising physical activity in a natural and verdant setting has a special charm that is sometimes difficult to find in a capital. Cycling is one of the favourite sports of Parisians, which is why the city has put in place easily accessible circuits for its inhabitants. The banks of the Seine, for example, offer a pleasant ride, during which one can enjoy a view of the charming buildings of Paris, as well as some entertainment. In the Bois de Boulogne, there are calm paths that are ideal for a walk under the trees. The same goes for the Bois de Vincennes, whose invigorating air attracts many amateur cyclists.
City dwellers or passing travellers who wish to enjoy a more demanding walk can head towards the Coulée Verte in the south of Paris. Starting from Malakoff, a dozen kilometres of managed tracks meander between the natural green spaces and the Parisian agglomeration. On the side of the valley of the Juine, not far from Etampes, the road is flat and easy to reach. It is the ideal place to stroll on a sunny afternoon. The more adventurous might prefer to go to Milly-la-Forêt, where there is no less than 60 km of circuit intended for two-wheeled vehicles.
