Earlier this week The Girl and I made our sorta-annual trek to pickup a Christmas tree at the nearby market. The first year we returned home via Velib (the bike share system). Last year, we ended up walking it home. By time I got home, I realized that was a terribly poor idea. Thus, this year, it was back to the bike. The route home is about 2/3rds of a mile (1KM), roughly half-that if you walk.
Luckily, right next to the Queen’s new namesake placard is a Velib bike stand. So we got it all loaded up into the front basket. It fits surprisingly well. I know most Parisians stick groceries and mini dogs in there, but it’s a great plant holder too.
From there I navigated out away from the market.
The only challenge is the highly limited visibility. It’s like missing a side-view mirror on your car. Thankfully, the traffic is virtually all one-ways here. Would have been less than ideal to get hit by the hop-on hop-off tourist bus.
Then, I zipped past a much larger Christmas Tree (Thanks Putin!) to our house on the other side of the church.
Then it’s simply heading over the lock bridge and down the bicycle lane to our house. I’d make a turn on the one-way street a few seconds later and get back to the house, which is actually the building in the picture. Somewhat circuitous, but it worked.
Then tonight, we got the tree all decorated. Now we just need to add some goods below the tree, then we’re all set!
Hope everyone has a great weekend ahead, and thanks for reading!

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”.
