20,000 bicycles in Paris

NPR audio report on Paris officials making 20,000 bikes available for rent across the city in a bid to reduce the number of cars: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=10184000

I would be surprised if they got 20 people who would risk their lifes riding a bike in Paris traffic.

Yeah! The concept was introduced in Lyon a few years ago, and it's brilliant!

There are bike lanes - it's not like Italy for heaven's sake

I risked my life with at about 20 othes last year on a bike tour of Paris. It was fun. I don't think they will have a problem finding people to use the bikes.
