Pedal Through Paris

Amp up the romance in Paris with a midnight bike ride along the Seine. Check out Vélib', an inexpensive, 24/7 public, self-service, bike rental system with stations scattered throughout the city. Pick up a bike at one station, and leave it at another. Lights shimmer off the water, setting the mood, and you and your significant other will practically have the city to yourselves. Linger for a kiss under a bridge or take a cue from the film, The Lovers on the Bridge, and smooch on the Pont Neuf. Grab your partner's hand - Redbook is giving away a romantic trip for two. The Grand Prize is $250,000, which ought to cover a bicycle built for two in any city. Pedal on over and enter.

  1. Vélib is really great & works very well. I have to admit I have not been impressed by the London equivalent, yet. It would be so useful to go to work, though!
