In short, it's quite possible that the collaborative effect of the best way being 'by bicycle', and the best day being 'Sunday 27th September 2015', could result in one of the most enjoyable days of cycling and exploring Parisians have ever seen.
Climate Action reports:
Paris will ban motorised vehicles from the roads for the day on 27 September as an experiment in its efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
The city will implement the ‘Une Journée Sans Voiture’ (A Day Without a Car) next month to coincide with European Mobility Week and a United Nations climate change summit, both of which will also be in Paris.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo (pictured) said: “Paris will be completely transformed for a day… This is an opportunity for Parisians and tourists to enjoy the city without noise, pollution and therefore without stress.”"
So long as it's not hissing it down with rain and gusting a gale, a Sunday ride around gay Paris, electric or otherwise would surely be a great fun day out.
It would be great if more cities felt able to implement similar arrangements in coming years. As new forms of sustainable transport become available the likelihood seems ever more plausible.
More Smile per Mile.
Test rides and demonstrations by prior arrangement.
