Back to Paris

You first go to the internet and set up an account with a credit card.  It is all in English, so no problems.

The goal is to have you pick up the bike and go to your destination and then immediately turn the bike in for someone else to use. A few minutes later you rent another bike and continue on your way. Actually, the bikes are not so much a tourist item as they are means for the local business people and shoppers to get around town.

There are bike racks everywhere, so it is easy to find a place to return the bike.

When you start you go to the machine (not pictured above - the rental machine is at the end of the row bikes) press the button that shows multiple languages. Pick English and then the computer takes you step by step through the process.

Every time you return the bike to the electric lock on the bike rack, the computer recognizes the bike and a green light goes on to indicate that it knows that you have returned it.

Before you rent the bike, check the various bikes in the rack to be sure that the one you want has plenty of air in the tires and that it looks okay. They are very heavy duty bikes, so there is not likely to be any damage. Note the number of the bike stand slot as the rental computer will ask what bike you plan to use. It will then unlock just that one bike in the rack.

It is a fun way to get around Paris.

The cost free for the first 30 minutes and then something like one Euro for each your thereafter.

A canal that runs through a section of town. It is still used for commercial barge traffic.
