Biking in Paris

Is cycling safe in Paris? Is it appropriate for all ages?
Yes and Yes! Paris has become one of Europe’s best cycling cities with nearly 1000km of cycle paths across Paris and its suburbs. Our tour routes are carefully planned and our guides are experts at leading groups safely through the city. For kids, we have kids’ bikes, tandem attachments, and baby seats available. We also offer Private Family Tours which are even better for kids!

Where do bike tours begin & end?
Our bike tours start and finish at Le Peloton Cafe, 17 Rue du Point Louis Philippe, 75004.
Nearest Metro stops are
Pont Marie (Line 7) or
Hôtel de Ville (Line 1 and 11)
Keep in mind – Using Uber is often very slow!

How do I get to the meeting point?
We always recommend taking public transport (the Metro) to come to the meeting point. It is often much faster than taxis and Uber is often unreliable. Download the Paris city-mapper app to plan your journeys.

How hard/easy is the tour?
The tours are designed for people of all ages. We often have small kids riding with us, and we’ve had people in their eighties enjoy the tours too. We go at a relaxed pace, stopping frequently to tell you what you’re looking at and answer questions. There’s also usually a short break where you can get light refreshments.

Do you have e-bikes?
No. Trust us, you don’t need an ebike in Paris. We’ll be going at a very relaxed pace so you can take in the views, snap pictures, and enjoy your ride.

What happens when it rains?
Like all bike tour companies, we operate our bike tours rain or shine and provide ponchos free of charge in case of wet weather. We can allow for tour time changes when it is possible to do so. In this case, a re-booking fee may be applied. Keep in mind that Paris weather changes quickly, so the forecast on your phone 5 days before the tour is probably not completely accurate ?.

What should you wear?
Wear whatever you like that you feel is appropriate for the weather. It can be very hot in the summer and rainy in the winter. We ride casual city bikes (without a crossbar) so yes, you can wear a dress if you like.

How many riders do you take in one group? 
Depending on the day, our Paris bike tours max out around 12 and Versailles at 14 participants in one group.

Is there a break on the tour? 
Usually, we will have a break on the tour. Some small creperies and bakeries don’t take cards so it’s always advantageous to make sure you have a few euros in cash for those delicious crepes!

Do your bike tour guides accept tips? 
Yes! We always encourage participants to tip for a great service given.

Can I rent a bike without taking a guided tour?
Yes! Go directly to our Bike Rentals page & reserve your bike.

Do you offer tours in other languages?
For now, we only offer our daily group bike tours in English.
Private tours available in French upon request.
Visites privées disponibles en français sur demande.

On a tight schedule?
We understand that while you’re here you might be on a tight schedule to see as much as you can. Our tours typically last about 3.5 hours. However, traffic and other factors can lead to your tour running a little longer than expected. Please inform your guide if you have scheduled something that might mean you’re time conscious.

What if I haven’t been on a bike in years?
Relax, you’ll be fine. There’s a reason why people say “it’s like riding a bike” when they talk about a skill you never lose.
