Vélib bikes in Paris, widely succesful

Vélib [vélo libre= free bicycle] is a self service system, in use in Paris since 2007. Ever since, the use of bikes in Paris has increased with 70%. However, a picture like this, with a bike station completely filled up, is rather rare to find. You'll find the bikes rather attached to trees or bridges. Photo taken in front of the Castel Beranger, rue de Fontaine (Passy), Paris. See also en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velib and www.en.velib.paris.fr/comment_ca_marche
