Ahh to spend time in the City of Bikes....

You can guess where this came from, there is an article about how Paris is becoming the "City of Bikes" by creating an easy bike share program with special bike racks. An interesting experiment as an alternative to cars and mass transit. It'll be interesting if there are health effects from such a program in the population.

Amsterdam is a city of bikes, but the program is a little less official with the apocryphal story that a bike in Amsterdam is stolen an average of 5 times in it's lifetime. People believe it so much that they assume it's natural. Or so I've been told.
