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!

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!

Couldn't have been better--just awesome!

I didn't believe it would be as easy as the reviews said it would be. It totally was. Easy comfortable ride, even in heavy traffic. I would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Great experience with a great Guide(David S.)

Basically we were expecting not that much about this trip beside a smooth bicycle ride and some wine on the boat, but we got way more. A guide who clearly understood what he was talking about without getting in too much detail love. Beside the perfect weather we also got a lot of great views on the monuments of Paris and a nice domination team on the street and after it in the bar :-). Thanks for the perfect night.

An awesome experience, with a very entertaining and informative guide

A great experience with an enthusiastic, entertaining and informative guide in Fabian. The bikes were very easy to ride and the electric motors made the ride easy for riders of any ability or fitness level.
