Bicycling to Curb Pollution in Paris

Share this on:

In an effort to reduce pollution and traffic, Paris is joining other cities, like Stockholm, Vienna, Brussels, Barcelona and Copenhagen, by providing bicycles at various stations around the city for use by citizens and tourists. The bicycles are even free for the first half hour! Daily, weekly or yearly passes are available in 8 languages, and you can even use foreign credit cards.

I know I would have loved to see the city by bike on a recent trip there. I could have taken a leisurely ride, along the 230 miles of bike lanes, to admire the abundant centuries-old architecture and famous sites.

Great exercise and carbon neutral transportation–great combo!
