Parisian Bike Culture Documentary

Paris Bike Culture - Cycling Sociably
Over at the Social Biking Blog I found a great little documentary on the American PBS channel's website about the Vélib' bike share programme in Paris. It's part of a series calld e2 about transport . There is only an excerpt lasting 3:00 minutes, narrated by Brad Pitt of all people, but it's definately worth a look.

The success of the Vélib' programme took everyone by surprise. Bike sales, of regular bikes, are booming.

Here's the link. And here's the link to the E2 series website where you can see the whole episode and the other ones, too.

And you're always welcome to see my little text and photo essay about the rebirth of Parisian bike culture over at Copenhagen Cycle Chic.
