Serge will start the first stage in Paris, without fanfare. If you would like to run with him, the meeting point is in front of Notre-Dame Cathedral between 10H45 and 11H00. From there we will take the left bank quay to the Pont de Tolbiac, where we will cross to the bike path on the right bank and head out of Paris.
We will touch 3 departments on Sunday: Val de Marne, Essonne and Seine et Marne. We will run along the Seine, see some bucolic spots and go through the Sénart and Rougeau forests. The stage should finish just South of Melun.
Below is the link showing the details of the 1st stage. A theme for this stage could be: Along the Water, since Serge will never be far from the Seine.
