#5 Paris, France: Great Bicycle City Photo Tour

From bicycle lovers to lovers on bikes, bike art to art on bikes, the largest bicycle sharing program in the world to some of the smallest bikers, enjoy this bicycle city photo tour of Paris, France!

Paris doesn’t have a long history as one of the best bicycle cities, but with the introduction of the largest bicycle sharing program in the world, bicycling in Paris has boomed and the city is becoming commonly associated with the bicycle now. Its whole culture is changing due to the bicycle’s increasing relevance in the city’s daily life.

Paris is just ahead of #6 Groningen (the Netherlands), #7 Berlin (Germany), #8 Barcelona (Spain), #9 Bogota (Columbia), and #10 Basel (Switzerland) on this great bicycle cities photo tours list.

For a review of some of the environmental reasons why this bicycle photo tour is on EcoWorldly (as well as some health and wellness reasons), read the intro to the Barcelona bicycle city photo tour. As a taster, Bill Strickland states:

For instance, the bicycle is the most efficient machine ever created: Converting calories into gas, a bicycle gets the equivalent of three thousand miles per gallon.
