Paris to offer 20,600 bikes at 1,450 stations to rent by the end of the year

Live in Paris or plan on visiting soon? Like to ride a bike? Good news, then. You will soon be able to rent a bike at one of 1,450 stations in the city, meaning that every 250 yards there will be a bike rental site. According to this article, the city is patterning their efforts around those of Lyon, France. The system proved very successful in that city, and bike riders can be seen traveling throughout the city. Not only will the cycles clean up the city, but a recent study found that they are also the quickest way around. Practical greenery at its best.
