Bike to Work Week

City That Cycles

It's Bike to Work Week here and so I decided to include this photo in the few that I have hanging in Hooked On Books.  I couldn't believe the photo op whilst walking the side streets in Paris.  The street was deserted and empty but for the lineup of rental bikes parked for the day.  Not sure whether they were brought into the downtown from the burbs by workers or whether they were sitting there waiting for tourists to use.  The bikes are locked into meters all over the city and one only has to pay a fee, use the bike and then leave in any available meter.  A very bike friendly city!
