Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’!
I’ve got to have a bike. I’VE GOT TO HAVE A BIIIIIIKE! I’m a flaneur to the bone but I need to move a little faster these days. It’s getting warmer (though it’s been pouring daily lately) here in Paris and I’d like to avoid the hot, stuffy and sometimes funky, metro. That Paris has added bike lanes to nearly every street here just makes me more eager to hit the road on two wheels. You may already know about Paris’s amazingly simple and reliable bike share program called Vélib, it’s great, efficient and omnipresent. Problem is, I’m a one bike kind of woman. I want to use it as a daily form of transportation not just take it out for an occasional spin in the city. I want to give it flavor, know it upon site and take it home with me at the end of the night. I want a commitment. I want MY OWN BIKE. I’m tall drink of water so I need a tall bike, something safe and dependable, like a Velorbis bike or a vintage one from 18 Vélo Vintage. The choices are endless just like the road.
P.S. Thinking of giving this company a try, I’ve never toured Paris on two wheels. Have you?
