Velib': Bikes for Everyone

The Baby isn't born yet, but Mayor Delanoe has announced its name: Velib'.

The much anticipated new bicycle lending program for the city of Paris has been officially baptized. A raccourci of velo and liberte, the monniker seems a little forced now but I'm sure it will soon be rolling off our tongues.

At these prices, we simply have to love it:

1 euro for one day
5 euros for a week
29 euros for an annual rental fee.

Bikes are sturdy and have ample baskets. They should be in place during the course of this summer.
