I learend of these routes through the Guide Frank Cyclotourisme, Ile-de_France (series La France à Velo) published in 1995 bt Franck Mercier Editions, and out of print since about 1997. It contained terse descriptions of 90 cycle tours in the region, and for avid cyclists, it may well be worth searching for at bouquinistes or on-line.

I rode these bike routes out of Paris, and began this Internet site in 2001 with the idea of keeping them before the public, with updating, clarification, and photos. The wording and organization of the routes, unless attributed, is entirely my own.

I wish to thank all the individuals who have taken the time to write. Their questions and comments frequently have led to improvements in this Site.

The individuals singled out below, often more than once, provided especially thoughtful and helpful information: David Dunkley, Rex Duffin, Bill Clay, William A. Anderson, Peter Wedd, Mark Cramer, Damian Buckley.
