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!

Interesting, engaging, and entertaining - one of our favorites!

While we were in Paris we did many activities but none compared to our bike tour with Fabian! I had researched bike tours and decided on this one based on reviews, all gushed about Fabian. I was so excited when he turned out to be our guide. The tour was informative, engaging, and entertaining.

A dream way to visit Paris when time is limited.

Bikes great and helmets supplied, saw so much in three hours and the city was well set up for cyclists. Julien provided us with plenty of interesting information to further enhance the experience. I highly recommend this trip.
