Every first weekend of June, bicycles rule the road in France. This year in Paris, (Saturday, June 7, 2008 and Sunday June 8th) many of the activities and demonstrations will be found at the Bike Festival Village created especially for the Fete du Velo. You’ll find the village near the south entrance to the Luxembourg Gardens at Rue August Comte.
As part of Paris’s 12th annual Bike Fest (Fete du Velo) (2008), the International Cyclonudist (Velorution) will start at 2 pm Jardin de Reuilly (12th arrondissment), Saturday, June 7th and pass through the Bike Fest village around 4:30 pm. Have your cameras ready for a sight rarely seen on the streets of Paris.
>> And if you want to go where being “au naturale” is the norm, then check out France’s nude beaches, too!
