Nice Matin 16th July 2009

Tomorrow at 11am, the velobleu is launched in Place Garibaldi, handy for us so we'll probably go along.

The website is finally launched:

If you go to the Ligne d'Azur office on Place Massena, next door to the Nespresso shop and opposite Sports 2000, you can pick up a free guide and map showing all the locations. I really hope this bike scheme will work as it would be really handy for us to nip to the main train station. I noticed that Cimiez is not served by the velobleu, probably too hilly. There's a stand by Parc Vigier - right by the start of the coastal walk around the Cap de Nice.

You have to ID yourself each time before jumping on a bike, either by a swipe card or by phone. I am going to try and organise a card, seems much less faff. You can order a card via the website although this function wasn't working last time I checked.
