Paris Chic Bicycles Are Rather Fun and Utalitarian
One reason why Parisians have such fab legs
Somehow we would like to believe that the bikes in Paris are rather tzujed up glam affairs.
I recently started taking photos of bicycles around the city. They have a certain charm which is hard to describe.
From the slick racers that are used in the Tour De France, to the beat up but tough spray painted bicycles to the delivery ones with baskets to the gray, to the utilitarian Velib rentals, they are a vital form of transport to get around the much trafficked rues of Paris. Not to mention that with the recent strikes they were the only reliable way to get from here to there.
Try some stateside ways to bike around your city:
