Hello. I'm Simon.
I'm a private bike tour guide based in Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and in recent years one of the most bike friendly cities too.
Get away from the stuffy 'history lesson' tours and discover Paris on your own private bicycle tour. Conducted in English, the relaxed tours perfectly blend history and humor.
Along the way we'll see...
- Famous landmarks.
- Hidden gems.
- Street art.
- Movie and TV locations.
Gently ride around the boulevards back streets of Paris seeing popular landmarks as well as lesser-known locations where you can enjoy the everyday culture and vibe of the city and the people who call Paris home.
We'll ride through the Parisian sunset catching unforgettable moments on the golden river seine as we thread a path through landmarks and monuments to the glittering Eiffel Tower where we'll enjoy a glass or two of sparkles.
Frequenty Asked Questions
Is Paris safe for bikes and infrequent cyclists?
Absolutely yes! Paris has been steadily transforming to a bike friendly city with an ever expanding web of safe cycle paths, many of which are entirely separated from the roads. I'll be happy to give you helmets too if you so wish.
Where do tours start?
We'll meet at the Hotel de Ville (city hall) which is conveniently in the center of Paris (4th arrondissement) easily accessable by taxi and metro (lines 1 and 11).
What kind of bikes are used, and what about kids?
We'll be using city bikes that are adjustable and fit most adults easily. Kids bikes, and tandems are also available. Paris is predominantly flat so there's no need for electric bikes that can sometimes be a little dangerous for unfamiliar riders.
What about the weather?
I ride everywhere and never take the metro. Rain or shine, Paris is beautiful, so if it does rain I can give you ponchos and show your how this city comes to life in the reflections that appear everywhere.
How fun are you as a tour guide really?
I'm really fun. We'll have a blast, you'll see.
