Biking along Canal de l’Ourcq

I won’t hide that autumn is my favourite season in Paris : the weather is nice (much better than in spring!) and colors are gorgeous. I chose a nice and warm Saturday of October to do one of Parisians’ favourite bike paths, the path along Canal de l’Ourcq. This is a 23 km path following the Ourcq channel, completely flat and totally separated from the car traffic so it is also a nice and safe activity to do with kids. If you don’t have your own bicycle don’t stop reading! There is a rental place at the beginning of the path, close to a metro station. For other rental options and many other biking tips in Paris check our Paris by bike guide.
