Bikes in Paris are a great way to see Paris differently, especially since the city has more than 2300,000 feet of biking lanes.
If you don’t have your own bike, you still have many options: rentals or Vélib’.
Vélib’ is a self-service bike rental system, created by Paris CityHall and a famous French company, JCDecaux.
With 20,000 bikes and more than 40,000 stops in Paris and its suburb, it is one of the cheapest, simplest and most practical ways to visit Paris (24/7).
