Zipcar-like bikes: Velib


France has a wonderful shared bike system (American analog is Zipcar). All over Paris are bikes in the Velib system.


You get a Velib membership and then can pick up and drop off at any of the many Velib bike stands around the city.

This person however somehow has their very own Velib!


The post-it says "My Velib. Mine Only."

Update: a similar program is being launched for the first time State-side, in Washington DC: NYT article LINK and website for SmartBike DC LINK
