The French government is working on loosening of lockdown restrictions gradually, with Paris adopting safe social distancing cycling over packed underground trains and buses

Paris to spend €300 million Euros to convert roads into bike lanes during coronavirus

The Ile-de-France region announced it would be backing temporary and permanent cycle lanes to the tune of €300 million with certain sections to be ready as soon as May.

“I’m thinking of temporarily laying out routes above the busiest Metro lines so that people who feel safer on bikes can get around,” the city’s mayor Anne Hidalgo said. “In concrete terms, we want to double lines 1, 4 and 13 by above-ground bicycle networks on the same routes.”

By May 11th, some boulevards across Paris will have been converted into makeshift bike lanes to provide express routes for key workers.

The mass transport strikes in France in December and January saw many people taking to their bikes as an alternative to public transport, and the mayor is hoping that some of them will revert to this once the city starts to go back to work from May 11th.
