Bike at your own risk
We went to the Marais looking for apartments for him, then saw Cyrus (it sucked), then biked from Les Halles (a sort of shopping mall) to the bar. I had heard that there are bike lanes; what I did not know is that bike lanes are also bus and taxi lanes. So I haven't ridden a bike since I was maybe 8, and now I'm doing so (rather unsteadily) while busses and taxis speed past and hoping they see me before they hit me (or before I hit them, also possible considering my biking skills).
I don't think this is something I'll be doing again, at least until I have some sort of insurance.
