Paris on Two Wheels

Contributor to®
The first time I heard about Vélib was this past summer, when my brother returned from a vacation in Paris. He told me about this wonderful new system where you could rent a bike and in this way visit the city without depending on the metro or buses. It was now easily possible to see the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame Cathedral within a half hour, all the while taking in all of Paris’s beautiful sites. So you can imagine my excitement when I landed in Paris just two weeks ago, looking forward to discovering Paris by bike myself.
