The streets of Paris are full of bicycle commuters, 
and one sees many of the rental bikes (Vélibs) utilized.  
They come equipped with a lock, an ample basket, 
easily adjustable seat, three gears, hand brakes, and... 
a bell.

With a Navigo pass, a simple swipe of the card and you are good to go.  
For a tourist, there are a few more steps, 
but still easy and inexpensive when you understand how it is charged.

How do I know?

brrrring, brrrrring!
