Return a cycle


Return your bike to any Velib’ station.


Push the bike clip as far as possible into the bike post. If necessary, lift the bike up into the saddle at the same time to facilitate parking. An orange, then green light, followed by two successive beeps, confirm that the bike is locked correctly.


To make sure your bike has been locked correctly, print a receipt at the station or try to hire another bike.
