I learnt that in Lyon public bicycles are available to hire from many bike stations spread around the city.

Bicycles can be used for short or long distances, with bikes being able to be returned to the numeorus bike stations available as and when required.

Although not free and requiring a credit card as security that bikes will be returned, the actual charge for bike usage is minimal and they are well maintained.

Together with my cousin JP, his girlfriend and friend H, we toured the city of Lyon by bike.
