Cycling in central Paris tripled in the ten years 2004-2014:

Velib was introduced in 2007, Delanoe launched his cycle route plan in 2002. The number of kilometres of cycle lanes increased from 256 km in 2001 to 700 km in 2015 also since 2008 29 km of bus lanes are available to cyclists. 729 km is almost triple the distance of cycle lanes in 2001. You'll note that the growth in cycling has tracked the growth in cycle lanes, with an extra bump from velib.

According to 'Institut d'aménagement et d'urbanisme (IAU) quoted in the Le Monde article

Il y a quinze ans, le vélo était « quasi inexistant » à Paris.

And the huge growth in cycling is completely obvious to anyone has visited Paris regularly over the last 10-20 years.

Those are the facts and they are pretty convincing!
