Velib route suggestions

Jump to last reply

My 15 y.o. son and I are hoping to go with my husband on his work trip to Paris July 4-10. Last time we were in Paris we did the Blue Bike tour and loved it. We were inspired to try the velib system, but did not have the necessary chip and pin card. We now have them but were thinking about getting the 7 day velib passes. I downloaded the Velib App, but don't believe I can use it offline. I understand I can purchase velib maps at Tobacs.

Ideally I would like to avoid congested areas. My question is for anyone who has used the velib system. Do you have any nice routes you like to ride? After we feel more comfortable riding around I'd like to try something a little ambitious.

I've seen a self-guided chocolate tour via velib, but it wasn't super clear which roads to take. I think it would be fun to build our own tour. I'm thinking shops like Jean-Paul Hevin, Patrick Roger, Benoit Chocolats etc. But I'm totally open to suggestions to less known places. I think what I should do is map out the shops in order of how we will visit them and then figure out how to get there via velib.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
