Spotcycle adds Calais’s Vel’In bike share to its list of supported cities

We’ve recently added support for Vel’In bike share in the major port town of Calais, France.

Vel’In’s 34 stations are spread out over the town, and allow both locals and visitors convenient access to its fleet of 260 bikes, 24/7.

Located on the coast of northern France, Calais’ close proximity to England has made it historically strategic for trade between the two countries. Calais’ location on the Côte d’Opale (Opal Coast) coastline of sandy beaches and coves has long been cherished by the French and visitors from abroad seeking seaside getaways, local seafood and perhaps even a regional mint caramel confectionery called “bêtises” (‘silly mistakes’).

There’s no need to download anything new if you already have Spotcycle but be sure to take the app along if you’re out and about in Calais.
