Vélib’ 2014

2014 was another big Vélib’ year for me. I visited Paris in February, July and August (staying in the 10th, 6th and 2nd arrondissements) and took out a seven-day Vélib’ subscription each time.

This was the year I discovered Le Lucernaire, the “national center for the arts and experimentation” just off of Montparnasse, as well as the Pavillon de l’Arsenal, the Museum of the Sewers and the Maritime Museum.

Bike sharing in Toulouse and Bordeaux

Between my July and August visits in Paris, I traveled by train to the south of France, where I tried out the bike sharing systems VélÔToulouse in Toulouse and VCub in Bordeaux. Both of these systems turned out to be very similar to Vélib’, so I immediately felt right at home in both cities.
