Mobility Week in Paris: "Bike to Work"

Paris - semaine de la mobilité 2013

The European Mobility Week is coming soon! Here's a good initiative in Paris: the city encourages the inhabitants to use their bike to go to work.

You can sign up on the website: velo.citegreen.com and track how many kilometers you ride the whole week. You can win a week's holiday in Croatia. Strange way to reward the cyclists. Is it so tiring to ride a bike for one week?

You can also take a picture and win a glow-in-the-dark water bottle. I've lived for years in Paris and I can tell you there are no water bottles on bicycles ridden by Citizen Cyclists.

Parisians: dress up and ride your bike! Look how chic Copenhageners are when we are heading for the office.
