    A bit of an early start meant that we were into the breakfast room about 2 minutes after it opened at 7am. The breakfasts here are ample – Fruit, yoghurt, cereal, croissants, bread, spreads, juice and coffee – although I am still adjusting to the whole “drink the coffee out of a bowl (like a small noodle bowl) thing – as they say “when in Paris….” Plus the bread is not only delicious but is more than we need at breakfast and seems to somehow find its way into our bags for lunch! Sated and sorted we were out the door by 7.45 and on our way to the Fat Tire Office for our trip to Versailles.

Anyway he was lovely and chivvied our group of 18 on and off the Metro and the RER getting us to the Versailles office of Fat tire and onto our bikes in good time. First stop was the market were we stocked up on provisions and then it was off to the Palace.Read more
