I figured its only fair to start this out by putting photos of myself out there. I’ve been living in France for a few months. If you’re ever lucky enough to make it to Paris, I recommend getting on one of these almost-free bikes. You need a French credit card to do so, good luck with that. However, if you succeed, it’s only about 1 euro to take a Velib (Paris bikes) for a ride.

A beautiful view (they are everywhere in Paris). You can see most of Paris’ sites along the Seine with a bike in less than an hour. Also, These bikes are more like tanks, so don’t let French drivers put you off.

pull over that bike too fat
