Paris Streets

Bicycling through the streets of Paris is a unique way of exploring the city. The bike in the city of Paristhe city light has serious intention of becoming the world capital of bicycles. There are already more than 371 kilometers of tracks ciclabes, and are planned over 600kms from here 2 years, streets are closed each time more frequently to motorized vehicles, and during the summer there are dozens of initiatives that allow citizens bicyclists take over the streets again. I must say well high: Paris is at war against the cars! Their programs as breathe Paris, velib, Paris Plage in summer, offer additional incentives to exit and walk the streets of Paris by bike. Entire neighborhoods as well how the Quays of the Seine River, remain closed to traffic motorized Sundays and holidays, transformed into pedestrian streets and tracks for cyclists. Make an opportunity to take fresh air and enjoy the unusual Parisian atmosphere inmperdible only 5 years back. If you know how to get around the streets of Paris, it is relatively easy and safe, although obviously the precautionary measures must be respected. Be careful with this, since the bikes are considered how a vehicle, and must comply with the same laws of traffic than a car or a motorbike. You can be costly, (not to mention the accident) 90 fine for failure to comply with a red traffic light and up to 120 by drunken biking! Bicycle is gaining ground, but this recognition include rights but also duties not logical? Because the bicycle? The main attraction of the bicycle in Paris is that thanks to it you will have access to tourist attractions in a few minutes enjoying a scene impossible to discover traveling by subway, by car or bus. Paris is not a city as vast as it seems in addition to being plain, so does not need any effort to go from one end to another of the capital, and much less to visit the area of the tourist center of the capital.
