Biking to work European style

Rental bikes in London.

On a recent trip overseas I was infatuated with how people get around. Coming from a rural area, it’s amazing to watch how millions of people commute twice a day in large cities like Paris and London.

I was amazed how many people are now riding bicycles, which is a big change from the last time I was across the pond about 20 years ago. Rental bikes are available at locations all over both cities. Bike lanes have been established to allow some safety, but cyclists still contend with unbelievable traffic.

    The city of Minneapolis has the same sort of rental bikes throughout downtown. Very cool.
