After five long days in the saddle for the Tour de Cycle Hire with Borough earlier this summer, we arrived into the 10th arrondissement of Paris, exhausted but smiling. Our journey was a celebration of the Tour de France’s visit to London, but it turned out to be more detour than le tour, so it felt strange at first to be riding the bikes in an urban environment again.

We spent the weekend exploring the city from our Airbnb base near Canal St Martin in the north east, an area buzzing with street life and bicycles.

With so much on our doorstep, shooting one last set of images on my X100S seemed like the natural thing to do…
