Getting around in Paris by bike

You can rent bikes in Paris and the suburbs with Vélib '.

There are 1800 Vélib stations and are located throughout Paris near metro stations, monuments, museums, restaurants ... You can take a Vélib' in Paris and drop it in any other Vélib' station.

The first half hour of rental is free if you subscribe with your credit card. Many bike lanes were built in Paris for several years and Vélib 'are very appropriate to the Paris traffic (with a cart, a padlock and three speeds). Once this subscription is taken, you can make as many trips as you like during your subscription period. The first 30 minutes of use per trip are free and beyond, you will be charged 1 Euro for the first ½ hour and extra 2 euros for the second ½ hour.

Please note, Vélib' are not recommended for children under 14 years due to their weight.
