I took this image of Paris' Notre Dame while cycling through Paris in December, using the City bike hire scheme, Velib. Pottering along the Rive Gauche (the Left bank) past all the little booksellers, gives you a lovely perspective of the iconic cathedral, just across the narrow branch of the Seine and away from the throngs of people queuing to get in. As you cycle along the bank, you get a wonderful view of the gothic spires and buttresses at the side and back of the cathedral.
