With this self-service bike scheme you can pick up a pearly-grey bike for peanuts from one roadside Vélib' station and drop it off at another. Its almost 1500 bike stations are accessible around the clock. iPhone users can download the Vélib' application. To get a bike, open a Vélib' account: one- and seven-day subscriptions can be done at any station with any credit card that has a microchip. If the station you want to return your bike to is full, swipe your card across the multilingual terminal to get 15 minutes for free to find another station. Bikes are geared to cyclists aged 14 and over, and are fitted with gears, antitheft lock with key, reflective strips and front/rear lights. Helmets are not compulsory; bring your own if you want to wear one.
