The initiative is aimed at introducing a cycling culture among the youth.
Paris has launched a pint-sized version of its bike-share programme Velib that will allow kids as young as two to join in the fun at parks and designated areas across the city.
That means that parents toting young kids to Paris can get a start giving them bike lessons while on holiday or go for a leisurely, family-friendly spin at some of the city’s prettiest parks.
The programme Petit Velib, which launched in Paris this week, will allow parents to rent out a range of mini-bikes adapted for kids ages two to eight, in areas like the Bois de Boulogne in the northwest end of the city, Bois de Vincennes at the other end, the Berges de Seine and along the canal in the northeast part of Paris.
Helmets will also be made available.
An initiative launched by Paris’ newly minted mayor Anne Hidalgo, Petit Velib is aimed at teaching Parisian kids how to pedal young and early in a bid to introduce a cycling culture in the younger generation and curb cars on the road. — AFP Relaxnews
