Have you noticed all those strange khaki bicycles zipping around Paris?
Ever since the hip Paris urbanites adopted the system in 2007, the Vélib’ self-service bicycle system has become a huge hit, now emulated by a number of European cities.
Until April 2011, Vélib’ had one MAJOR drawback : you needed a smart-chip equipped credit card to purchase the surprisingly affordable pass. The many Anglo-Saxon visitors that didn’t were left out in the cold.
Not any more.
Now you’ve got no excuse to miss out on this delightful way of getting from one part of Paris to the other, while enjoying the sights along the way (oh, and if you’re worried about the mad Parisian drivers, then you’ll love Sunday mornings).
There is a lot to be said about Vélib’, so I’ve taken the time to write a 6-page free report about how to get the best from the system.
In my Vélib’ report, you will discover:
- What all the fuss is about
- Why the system is so popular
- How to pay less by exploiting a loophole in the pricing structure
- How to grab a good bike and avoid a dud
- Safety precautions
- Why the system isn’t perfect (and how to manage anyway)
