A cycleway in Bondy, France

Submitted by Newcycling

Following Nantes, Armelle now sends a photo from Bondy - one of the northeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located about seven miles from the centre of Paris.

She says: "Bondy is an impoverished suburb which suffered the riots in the autumn of 2005, yet finds the funds and the will to develop cycle paths to the RER station and tram line (opened in 2006) connecting a string of disconnected towns. Here mobility - physical, geographical and social - is the key to any political approach."
