Â There has been a sweeping change across France. They are trying to cut down on traffic within cities and now offer bikes for rent. It is very easy to do. The hard part is either finding a bike available when you want one, one with full tires,Â or an empty place to return the bike to when you are finished. You will be charged for the extra time so you have to find a return point and may end up driving quite a ways from where you wanted. It has been wildly popular and the city of Paris is even making some money on the whole project.
Here is a line of posts where the bikes are parked in my neighborhood. As you can see, there aren’t many left.
You see these trucks all over Paris now as they go check the bikes.
Here is someone putting air in the tires.
Â Maurice and I haven’t tried them yet. I’m waiting for warmer weather and it will have to be on a Sunday so there won’t be alot of traffic.
