Okay...cobbles. I am very cobbleadverse after the last 7km of rome (beautiful finish through the old city...unfortunately cobbles all the way completely ruined my ligaments and picked up an injury) anyway...paris cobbled areas:
- down the champs for the start. It's fine here and downhill so all good)
- by the effiel tower. Watch out for these! They're short but there's also a feed station so it's cobbles, water, banana skins and orange peel.
- approx 20m. About 300m of large cobbles. Bit painful at this point but they're not too long.
All in all, cobbles are fine! Just watch your footing around the effiel tower bit.
I HATE cobbles after rome but have done paris 3 times since then. Don't let them discourage you!!!
