A new generation of bike rental is here, where you pick up the bike where you start your ride and drop it off at the destination. Vélib'
are the high-profile, wildly successful products of the JCDecaux ad firm in the cities of Paris and Grand Lyon. Velib' provides 10,000 bikes

in Barcelona to similar success, although at a smaller scale. [more inside]
