Velib - Traveling the Streets of Paris in Style

The Velib bike rental system in Paris is amazing. The image above is from The Sartorialist, one of my all time favorite blogs. Seeing the chic Parisian dude on the rented bike reminded me of my recent trip to Paris, in which my friend and I rode around the city like giddy-as-could-be-children. Something about renting a bike for 24 hours for only 1 Euro & riding beneath the Eiffel Tower really evokes a sense of child-like wonder. It was very liberating, easy, and somehow felt quite chic. All cities deserve to have such an amazing (and environmentally friendly) transportation option!
