"Vélib' at night" Top 5 Page for this destination Cycling Tip by Nemorino
Cycling, Paris: 32 reviews and 136 photos
Favorite thing: The Vélib' bikes are available 24 hours a day, around the clock, and they all have front and rear lights that go on automatically, day or night, when you start to ride.
Thanks to Vélib' lots of people have discovered how exhilarating it is to ride around Paris at night. Public transport schedules get thinned out in the late evening anyway, so by taking a bike you can avoid having long waits for the next train or bus to come.
They say about 25 % of all Vélib' rides are taken between 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.
Between 1:00 and 4:00 a.m. the trains and buses stop running altogether, so to get home you have to take a bike or a taxi. (A bike is much more fun, and cheaper.)
Second photo: Here some people are checking out and returning bicycles at night at the Place de la Madeleine.
