PERSONALISED COURSES

Paris has set itself an objective: to become a world cycling capital. In order to achieve this, it is building new bicycle paths to allow users to travel safely. From north to south (from Gare du Nord to Porte d’Orléans), and from east to west (Bois de Vincennes to Boulogne), via Châtelet, Rue de Rivoli, Champs Élysées and Bastille, it is increasingly easy to visit Paris by bike. The quays of the Seine also have cycle paths to cross Paris along the river in complete tranquility.

Paris by Bike

It is terribly pleasant to walk around Paris, to take your time, to stop and look up or to relax on the terrace of a café. Sort of strolling around. It is also the experience of discovering Paris.

But by bike, you are free to walk the streets to get a new perspective on the buildings you encounter. You can also in the same afternoon, see the Eiffel Tower, go to the Musée d’Orsay, go down to Parc Montsouris and go up to the Père Lachaise cemetery. When you visit Paris by bike, your travels become nothing but happiness. Especially since with the new bike paths, you no longer have to systematically make your way through the cars.

By bike, you are free to move as you wish, wherever you want and at your own pace, day and night. It is also very pleasant to visit Paris in the light of the lanterns on board your bike. As if you were alone in a Paris that is open to you.

Example of a very pleasant night stroll: walk along the rue de Rivoli along the Louvre, gently lit, before crossing it to reach the Great Pyramid. Then go up through the Place Vendôme and finish your visit on foot from the Opéra Garnier.

DISCOVER PARIS BY BIKE

Join the local guides who propose to discover Paris by bike, specially designed to make your trip as pleasant and safe as possible. You no longer have to worry about the route to take. In groups of 2 to 6 people, multiple stops are planned to give you all the explanations and at any time, you can ask your questions to the guide.

He/She advances at your pace and adapts to you. Take your time, each visit is planned so that everything goes smoothly so that you can fully enjoy your stay.

YOUR CYCLING EXPERIENCE IN PARIS

You are browsing the proposed tours. You choose the day and time. You book and you automatically receive a confirmation email with the guide’s contact details. The latter then contacts you to make initial contact with you and answer any questions you may have. Then he/she will tell you the exact location of your next appointment to start visiting Paris by bike.

Along the river banks

From Bastille, you reach the quays at the Pont de Sully, located at the end of Île Saint Louis. From there, you can follow the Seine without any problems until you reach the Alexandre III bridge, guarded by the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais. In the meantime, you will walk along the Ile de la Cité, the Mairie de Paris, the Palais du Louvre and the jardin des Tuileries. You have the opportunity to discover the history of the various bridges under which you have ventured, such as the Pont Neuf and the Pont des Arts.

Along the left bank

From the Place Saint-Michel, you can see the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in the east. To visit it, it is during another guided tour. In this one, heading west from Paris. You will thus discover the Musée d’Orsay, its history and architecture along the Seine. Then you will pass in front of the Palais Bourbon, which houses the elected members of the National Assembly. Your guide will take you to the Esplanade des Invalides and then the Champ de Mars, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. From there, you will continue to follow the Seine Current to discover the Bir-Hakeim Bridge, Swan Island and Mirabeau Bridge. The end of the tour takes you to André Citroën Park to enjoy one of the capital’s most charming green spaces in Paris.

BOULOGNE WOOD

For nearly 11km, without any difficulty, this guided tour of the Bois de Boulogne is one of the most enjoyable by bike. You travel from north to south through this green lung of western Paris, with multiple stops to enjoy all these treasures, as well as explanations from your guide. You are in good hands, your guide knows the area perfectly. You pass in front of the Jardin d’Acclimatation, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, the lakes, Bagatelle Park, the Pré-Catelan and the racecourses of Longchamp and Auteuil.

Paris BY BIKE: A WHOLE EXPERIENCE

Secure infrastructures, rental facilities for every budget and duration, all that was missing were guided tours to make it perfect. Enjoying the sunny days while walking around Paris by bike has truly become a very pleasant experience. It is also one of the easiest ways to do so and one that appeals to the whole family. If you go up rue de Rivoli, then Place de la Concorde and finally the Champs Élysées, you can imagine yourself in the place of the Tour de France runners who run this route every year. And if the paving stones shake at times, tighten your handlebars tightly and you won’t be bothered any further.

Enjoy your visit of Paris on your bike.

CYCLING IN PARIS

The space left vacant by cars to give the opportunity to all those who wish to travel along the banks of the Seine. Whether on foot, rollerblading, skateboarding, cycling, etc… Without any difference in altitude, they offer an excellent way to reach the Champ de Mars from the Jardin des plantes without great physical difficulty. The whole family can visit Paris by bike by getting in their vehicle and looking up to admire the historic architectural masterpieces along the river.

At any time, it is possible to take a break to take a picture, sit on a bench and order a refreshment or snack in the many shops set up. Younger children can try their hand at climbing on the many routes or enjoy the playgrounds reserved for them.

DISCOVER TOURIST SITES FAR FROM EACH OTHER

If you are planning to visit a particular part of Paris such as the Marais, the Latin Quarter, you may prefer to walk. All the tourist sites are close enough to each other. In addition, you can enjoy the atmosphere of each of these places.

But if in your list of sites or monuments not to be missed, you have the possibility to use one of the many cycle paths, do not hesitate. Paris has made valuable efforts to ensure that bicycle journeys are secure and become a friendly experience.

For example, if you wish to reach Bastille from Place de la Concorde, you will take the opportunity to pass in front of the Opéra Garnier and Place de la République. Ditto, if you wish, a cycle path allows you to reach Pigalle from the Arc de Triomphe via Parc Monceau.

AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE SUBWAY SYSTEM

You are in Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. If some metro stations are exceptional and worth a visit, you may want to consider another alternative for your trips. Especially if the weather is fine, you have the opportunity to see “more” of Paris.

The most valuable advantage of the metro is that with it, you don’t have to worry about the route. The station names are usually explicit enough to tell you what line(s) to take and what change(s) to make. But if between two tourist sites that you have decided to visit you know which route to take, then prefer cycling. Even for a few minutes. Above all, it only represents a few metro stations.

You will take the opportunity to see Parisian life for a longer time outside the places where mass tourism reigns. You may even have ideas about the next restaurant or bar you will visit later. It can even happen to you if you are flexible in your schedule, to pass in front of a monument you have heard about and visit it. Sometimes these improvised stops turn out to be wonderful surprises that only the freedom and time saving offered by cycling can give you.

FIND YOUR WAY AROUND PARIS BY BIKE

For a long time, visiting Paris by bike meant taking the bus lanes and driving between cars when they are at a stop. With the new cycle paths, new major roads have emerged. The city has clearly understood the importance for its image among tourists and cyclists that more resources and infrastructure are needed to travel by bicycle.

Although all these tracks are not yet clearly indicated on the Paris maps, some actually follow the metro line circuits such as 1, 2, 4 and 6, which are enough to visit most of the capital’s tourist attractions. Just look at a metro map and follow these lines.

WHEN IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO VISIT PARIS BY BIKE

To attack the Montmartre Hill… Even for trained people, this is not pleasant. The absence of a car gives pedestrians the possibility to cross at any time and forces you to brake or even stop in the middle of an effort. And then Montmartre is one of those Parisian places where strolling is a must.

Trying out on the Place de l’Étoile… Of course, walking around the Arc de Triomphe takes a little more time than cycling. But the traffic is such that you may spend more time paying attention to yourself than to the monument. Too bad.

Going around the islands of the Cité and Saint-Louis… The quays of the Seine around the two natural Parisian islands are not at all suitable for cycling. Due to the many stairs and paving stones that line their contour, it is not impossible to use them but only on a few limited portions.

HOW WE PROVIDE YOU WITH A BIKE

There are offers for all budgets. Since the introduction of Velibs in 2007, rental agencies with street gables are no longer the only sources for buying a two-wheeler. With the opening to competition known as “free floating”, new solutions are once again being offered to users to visit Paris by bike. Overview and presentation of their rates, advantages and uses.

RENTAL SHOPS

Their number has decreased since the emergence of the competition mentioned above. But where they will never be replaced, it is in the quality of the bicycles they offer you. Similarly, their customer service is often more pleasant, especially if you have questions that they can answer immediately. You can also rent helmets and locks there.

Velib

Present all over Paris, you can pick up and drop off a bike called a Vélib on the terminals that criss-cross the city. There are classic bicycles (the greens) and power-assisted bicycles (the blues). With their three speeds, they are ideal for visiting Paris and offer a basket at the front and saddles adapted to women.

To rent a Velib, you must either go to their website or to the check-in points at all stations. In case of problems, it is also the place to go to contact their services.

As far as prices are concerned, here’s what you need to know:

  • All payments are made by credit card. The service asks you for a deposit which it returns to you at the end of your rental period.
  • Either you take a 24-hour pass or a 7-day pass to access the rental services for €5 and €15 respectively. During the validity period of your pass, you can take and rest as many bicycles as you wish, while paying attention to the duration of use.
  • For mechanical bicycles, the first half hour is free, for each take, regardless of your pass. If you make 100 trips of less than 30 minutes, then it only costs you the access fee to the service (5€ or 15€), during its validity period. For each additional half hour, you are automatically charged €1 to your bank account.
  • For electrically assisted bicycles, it’s about the same system. Only the rates change. Thus the first half hour costs 1€ and each additional half hour costs 2€.

With the same pass, you can rent up to five Velib simultaneously. To do this, you have to add €5 or €15 per beneficiary. For two, take a single 24-hour pass where you indicate that there are two of them and it costs you 10€. This avoids multiplying the passes. A pass for everyone and everyone for a pass!

BICYCLES IN FREE FLOATING

With them came the free floating system, which means you don’t have to worry about dropping off your ephemeral vehicle at a station. With your smartphone, you geolocate your future bike, you book it, you receive a code that you enter on the handlebars and that’s it. You can leave now. When you get to your destination, simply lock the lock on the rear wheel under the seat. The service understands that your journey is over. You are then charged according to your usage time (about 15cts per minute).
