The Velib

Good article on the bicycle rental system in Paris.

I LOVED the idea of renting bikes in Paris. I loved seeing the lines of bikes-- right next to the metro stations, generally-- which were also next to non-rented bike or scooter stands. You just pick one up, drop it off at your next metro stop-- perfect. I can't wait to go back.

I'm getting more and more to the point where I don't want to own a car, a bike, motorcycle, or anything that requires maintenance and storage space. I got a whole room full of broken bikes as it is!

Citykin, my bike is in my mom's garage. I think it needs air in its tires, but that's it. My car? Well, let's see.. new tires, new brakes, new serp.. you get the idea. Ugh.
