Paris Velib Bike Program and The Tour de France

Velib' Bike Rental Program Paris
Ok, confession time... instead of painting today I have been watching the Tour de France. As the cyclists spin their way through France headed toward Paris, I am reminded of the many Velib' stations located throughout the city. That rental program is the only way most of us will ever be riding a bike in Paris. 
Sorry Lance... for not making the team. 
I do like the the basket model velib bike. Perfect for art supplies and pastels from  La Maison du Pastel.
Seems there should be more emphasis on this kind of rental here in the States especially in college towns.  What do you think?
But whenever you ride your bike, please wear a bike helmet.
