In Paris, France a new bicycle transit system called the Velib has been installed.
Twenty thousand bikes have been made available and can be used free of charge for up to half an hour per ride.
They allow Parisians and tourists alike to get from A to B at their own pace, and to rediscover the beauty of the city at the same time.
The montage of voices in the programme include the Velib’s designer and Parisian residents.
They talk about the bicycle’s design features, how they use the system, the journeys they take, and how has the Velib has changed the city.
