Bike Sharing for Kids May Soon Be a Trend in U.S. Cities

No kidding? Actually, quite the opposite in Paris, France, where officials have launched the world's first bike-sharing program specifically for kids.

The program is called P'tit Velib (in English: tiny bicycle liberty), which makes 300 bikes available in four different sizes that parents can rent short-term at five park locations throughout Paris. The bikes accommodate ages 2-10 and are meant to create enthusiasm in young children who later in life might often choose bikes over cars.
