Paris by bicycle, on rollerblades or by segway

An alternative to walking, driving and coach tours: bicycle, rollerblade or segway !

Everything runs smoothly in Paris! Discover the City of Light in a different way on a bicycle ride. Especially now that for safe cycling, the French capital today offers more than 700 kilometres of bike paths. And thanks to a city-council initiative, 200 kilometres of new cycling routes are being developed in 2017; by 2020, Paris intends to double the current number! So, on your bike!

And to vary the pleasure, why not try a Segway or rollerblades?

If you want to combine cycling and culture, opt for a guided bicycle tour: it's an original way to see the capital in a new light.

Paris à vélo c’est sympa! offers atypical walks like ‘Paris Contrastes’, which combine the bucolic side of the city with modern architecture.

Paris Bike Tour enables you to see the top sights on its ‘Paris en Seine’ bicycle tours along the quaysides, or on its ‘Paris éternel’ bicycle tours around historic sites. And if you prefer assisted means of transport, try their new electric bicycle tour: a gentle 4-hour discovery tour of the timeless charm of Paris with family or friends! (Available on Thursday in French and English and on Sunday in French, English and German).

Be image-conscious

If you are image conscious, choose a bike with style. Holland Bikes Tours and Rentals offer guided tours on Dutch bikes, the Rolls-Royce of the bicycle.

For a retro ride, Le Grand Huit has a line-up of vintage models (from the 1920s to the 1970s), with decoration and flowers, whilst Blue Bike Tours has you pedalling on one-of-a-kind blue bicycles. At Neovelo, you can among other things opt for an electric model.

The easy two-wheeler

To ride without pedalling, try the Segway, a mono-passenger electric vehicle with two wheels.

It's fun, practical and ecological! Mobilboard Paris-Invalides offers rides to discover the most beautiful attractions in the capital.

Rollermania
