The Little Queen

Paris Bike Culture - La Petite Reine
La Petite Reine - the Little Queen - is an affectionate nickname for the bicycle in French. It is also the name of a transport company that uses the cargocycles above throughout Paris.

Wonderful pedal-powered design, although they also have a battery assist for heavy loads and hills. The company also uses Christiania Bikes in their fleet.
Paris Bike Culture - Bike Taxi
And these bike taxis are also popular on the streets of Paris. Very cool design, as well.
Paris Bike Culture - Advert
And with the birth of bike culture, advertising changes form, just as we've seen in other European cities here on the blog.
