Velib Trial

Always think that I don't really know a city until I cycle around it for a while, so I was very pleased to finally be able to use the new 'Velib' service that started in Paris on 15th july. Hundreds of automatic bike rental stations are now available all over central Paris and this is not only to the benefit of parisians. Tourists can also take advantage of a new and affordable way to visit this great city. A day pass costing 1 euro allows for unlimited 30 minutes trips for 24 hours. Just find a spot every half an hour, park the bike, do some sightseeing, pick up another one and move on to the next! Perfect way to spend a day in Paris!
