Velibre La France! (well Paris at least)
Never ones to let total traffic chaos get in the way of a good holiday...in lieu of the metro we used good old fashioned foot power to get around Paris in general but at the weekend when traffic was lighter we did avail of the excellent Velibre system, where you can rent a bike for an hour for two euros. Register your credit card, unlock bike, metaphorically shut eyes and pedal. Return bike to another rack. Stop hands shaking then carry on sight seeing. I should have taken some photos of my own but this photo I've 'borrowed' comes with an article explaining the whys, wherefores and how many(s) in the Globe and Mail.
