Bicycle Sharing in Europe

When we were in Paris last year, the Velib bike program, where bikes can be rented from dozens of locations around the city, had recently been launched. The program has been a huge success, and other cities are following suit.
In increasingly green-conscious Europe, there are said to be only two kinds of mayors: those who have a bicycle-sharing program and those who want one.

Over the past several years, the programs have sprung up and taken off in dozens of cities, on a scale no one had thought possible and in places where bicycling had never been popular.

Here's the full story.
