A bike runs through it
The first item that I must purchase when I move back home to Paris is un velo!
I first experienced Velib this past summer and the feeling of the warm, summer wind against my skin has never left me. Seriously, it was as if I was 10 years old again following my brother and his buddies all over our neighborhood on our ten-speed bikes, no cares in the world! I was going to buy my dream bike ( The Amsterdam)) a few months ago, but thought I’d better save that cash for a rainy day, a wise decision.
There’s a great blog that I obsess over from time to time: Copenhagen Style Chic. I love the photography and of course the lovely bikers of Copenhagen. The photographer manages to shoot at just the right moment.
I want to ride my bike as much as possible when I get back, it’s better than the metro, the bus and especially better than a taxi. Just you, your two healthy legs (Thank you, God!) and YOUR city.
Do you own a bike? Do you always wear a helmet? ( I didn’t in Paris). When you visit foreign cities do you ever rent a bike? From now on, when I visit a new city, in addition to walking, I’ll roll on two wheels, you know, ” a bike runs through it” style.
