Paris and its neighbor, Saint-Denis are building 55 kilometres of new bike lanes connecting Olympics 2024 venues in the city and near Saint-Denis's Stade de France to encourage greener travel by Olympic visitors.
In addition to the 'Olympilanes' project that includes 30 km in Paris and 25 in Seine-Saint-Denis, by 2024, the city will have built an additional 30 km that were already in the city's plan. The city already has 130 km of protected bike paths.
To accommodate all visitors, some 10,000 bike racks would be placed outside key sport sites such as the Roland-Garros stadium on the southwestern edge of the capital and the Champ de Mars arena near the Eiffel Tower. Another 3,000 lasting parking spots would be added near the Stade de France in Seine-Saint-Denis, regional authorities said. Another 3,000 bikes will be added to the city's Velib bike rental fleet.
