“Bikes bring you places, that cars never see.”
The weather is still beautiful, so it’s a perfect time to explore Paris by bike.
The days when cycling in the city of light was a danger to one’s own life is long gone. Cycling in Paris is actually becoming more and more popular and it’s a great way to see the city from a new perspective. And it’s very easy to rent a bike these days!
There is, for example, the popular Vélib bicycle plan. There are around 1,800 bicycle stations throughout the city. The first 30 minutes of every trip is always free after it will cost you around € 1 per half hour. With the enormous amounts of bicycle parking facilities, there is always a bicycle at your disposal.
If you prefer to have a bike for the whole day, it’s better to rent a bike in one of the bike shops. The bikes are less expensive and much better for long rides. Take a look at bimbimbikes.com for the addresses.
The benefits of cycling through Paris? You will see much more than when you use the metro. It’s nice to feel the wind in your hair and you can eat more croissant because you’ll burn lots of extra calories! 😉
