Paris is not Amsterdam as far as bikes are concerned but for the last two years the number of bikes has increased a lot. We of course have the "Velib" about 20 000 free bikes in the city but people are more and more using their own bikes. Here you can see two different ways of parking the bike. On the sidewalk or on the balcony.

This is a great shot. I love the way you captured both bikes and a lovely street scene too!

I think the increase in bike use can be attributed to the success of the Vélib. With so many users, it's difficult to find a bike in working condition and many times, there's no place to dock near where you want to go. And I suppose the price of gas might be part of that also.
