Avenue Verte: The suburbs of Paris

Local authorities in the UK and France are working on plans for a new cycle route between London and Paris, the Avenue Verte.

BBC reporter Stephen Mulvey cycled the length of the proposed route.

The path through the Paris suburbs follows the bank of the Seine for some miles, but then branches off in the suburb of St Denis, north of the city centre, to follow canals to within a stone's throw of the Bastille.
