5 cycling safety tips for a perfect bike tour in Paris

Whether you're joining one of the many guided bike tours in Paris or planning your own route around the city, here are five tips to make sure it goes beautifully.

Wear a helmet

This is both the most important rule and the one you're least likely to adhere to. You might regret it transitioning between Paris' tranquil alleys and chaotic roundabouts!

Follow the rules of the road

Aside from the obvious ones like always stopping at red lights, make sure you're fully aware of French traffic laws and try to keep an eye out for Parisian driving quirks!

Bring a map

Paris is a wonderful city to explore, but that just makes it easier to get lost in! Whether it's on paper or your phone, make sure you always have the means to find your way.

Use your bell

Even if you don't generally use a bell, make sure the one on your rented bike is working and learn how to use it. With all the tourists, scooters, cars, and buses, you'll need it!

Don't get complacent in the early mornings

Want the streets to yourself? Get up before the rest of the city does. Sunday is especially good for it, but watch out for broken glass not yet cleared up from the night before!

Planning Your Visit

Is it safe?

Just as it is to wander by foot, Paris is also a terrific place to cycle. Cycling accidents are relatively uncommon compared to other major cities, but we'd advise staying clear of the Arc de Triomphe for a stress-free ride!

Can I rent a bike?

If you'd rather go your own way, why not take advantage of Vélib – the city's official bike rental system. It incorporates almost 20,000 bicycles across 1,200 stations. You'll need to pay a subscription – €1.70 a day or €8 for a week – and a rental fee on top of that. The first half-hour is free!

Electric Bike Tour of Paris’ Hidden Gems Reviewed by Sean, 11/02/2016

Nice tour of the left bank with a dash of history !

Our group was very lucky, we had a beautiful spring like day and the tour rode through many idealic streets in the Latin quarter. The kind of landscape of films and postcards. We also had the lively atmosphere of an autumn neighborhood flea market in the square where we had our tour lunch break to refuel. This was great as it is a lengthy tour at 4 hours. My only criticism is that the graffiti /street art component is best left to those who really know all about it and those visitors who have a true interest in it. So, in short leave that for the street art tours and work shops, both of which I did and are really cool!

Paris 4-Hour Bike Tour: Off the Beaten Path Reviewed by vanessa, 10/17/2016

Best way to see the city with kids, period.

The Paris bike tour was simply the best way to see the city with Our four children (5,7,9,11). We got to see all of the sites as well as learn some very interesting things about everything and we saw. Sometimes it's hard to keep the attention of our children when we're trying to give them a cultural experience. The Paris bike tour was simply the best way to accomplish what we intended. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Great way to see Paris, perfect weather, fantastic sights.

Guide was good. Lots of traffic but the group managed well to stay together. Vicki was a lovely guide. Thank you.

Paris Highlights 3-Hour Bike Tour Reviewed by Carmela, 09/26/2016

Very worthwhile and exhilarating experience

Kit was the ideal guide. An Artist, historian and true story telling. The whole package of bike riding, small village experience, picnic and Kit's narration and story telling approach was a highlight of our time in Europe. Do it!
