I've been running Freewheeling France for more than seven years and, in that time, there has been one email that intermittently pops into my inbox: "I'm arriving into/passing through/leaving from Paris. Where can I safely store my bike/bike box?" Now I have a very good answer: Hotel de La Porte Dorée is in the 12th arrondissement, near the glorious Bois de Vincennes park and forest, on the Metro line to the Eiffel Tower, and close to Gare de Paris Bercy and Paris Gare de Lyon (for trains from Burgundy/Dijon and Lyon Part Dieu); by bike, you can get here from Gare du Nord or Montparnasse in under half an hour; the EuroVelo 3 route passes nearby. The hotel is owned by Laurent and Christina, a Franco-US team who cycle to work having dropped their three kids off at school en route. It's a certified eco-friendly hotel with a small fleet of hotel bikes. There's a large basement storage room for bikes and bike boxes (though they can also be taken to your room if you prefer). There's also a courtyard for daytime storage. If you're starting your trip in Paris before heading off elsewhere, they're even happy to store your bike box until you get back. Great breakfasts, free wifi. This is without a doubt top-of-the-list if you need somewhere to stay with your bike in Paris.
