LES TROTTOIRS DE PARIS: #4 LES BICYCLETTES


The pavements of Paris are often blocked by bicycles parked overnight by their owners and chained to bollards.

I tried (unsuccessfully) to get an estimate of the number of bicycles in Paris, but I am sure that the French are no where near the Dutch when it comes to bicycle ownership!

2013 Statistics revealed:

Population of the Netherlands: 16 652 800
No. of bicycles in the Netherlands: 16 500 000

If you've been to Amsterdam, I am sure these stats are not surprising!
