Hmmm, who would have thought?

Anne Hidalgo, Paris mayor, graduated with a Master degree in social work at
Jean Moulin University Lyon 3 before completing a Master of Advanced Studies
in social and trade unionism at Paris West University Nanterre La Défense.
The mother of three children, she is divorced and has remarried (a Socialist
Party parlamentarian).

Why does the marital status or number of kids or college major or college attended matter to this story?

Cycling in Paris, yes, but with your own bike.

Just one thing though: this article suggests that Paris' bike sharing
system was a pioneer, but actually Lyon (France's second largest city),
installed such a system before Paris did.

I have seen interesting things while these bike sharing systems have
been developing. They really increased the number of cyclists, including
some people that were obviously not used to it, and in turn, forced car
drivers to take them into account. I have also seen some shared bikes
with interesting design, such as shaft-based drivetrains, or single
blade forks.

I see two salient points in this article.

First, make sure any vendor is capable of providing the mandated service from the first day of the contract. This includes a smooth transition when changing vendors. One may assume the replaced vendor will completely cease operations one second after the existing contract's expiration. The new company must start operation before the new contract starts. The infrastructure must be in place and operational. The bike check-in/check-out could be simulated until the contract actually begins.

Second, the public outcry against the service interruption shows that biking around Paris is enormously popular.
