Experience the pleasures of Paris by bike
Published on 5 June 2018, dans Visit Paris
How would you like to discover the capital in a healthy, green and energetic way, propelled by your own power and enthusiasm? You would? Then, it’s Paris by bike for you! Cycling is a great way to explore the City of Light. You go wherever you like, at your own pace, and are free to discover charming places off the beaten path. Paris has some hills, but on the whole the relatively flat terrain makes it very easy to take long bike rides. This summer, treat yourself and those you love to a cycling holiday in Paris while staying at the Hotel au Royal Cardinal!
Romantic rides along the Seine
If you want to explore the city without having your nose stuck in a map or the GPS on your phone, opt for a simple solution and just follow the banks of the Seine! You will come face to face with magnificent monuments such as Notre Dame Cathedral, the High Court of Paris or the Louvre. In addition, the riverside is particularly lively during the summer, and you can hear music and even see people dancing the tango.

Beautiful routes for happy pedalling
Some routes through Paris are eminently suited to cycling. This is the case with the Rue de Rivoli, which runs along the Tuileries and by the Hôtel de Ville, as well as the Avenue de l'Opéra, where you’ll have the opportunity to admire the impressive Palais Garnier at your leisure. The small streets of the Latin Quarter, including Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, promise constant interest, and the Louvre courtyard is well worth the detour, especially at night. A ride along the Champs de Mars in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower is also quite an experience.
Cheer on the cyclists of the Tour de France
On July 29th, the most famous cycling event in the world comes to an end! The riders will cross the finish line of the Tour de France on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, so go and cheer them on to their hard-won achievement! All around the Arc de Triomphe, various events take place to pay tribute to these top athletes. The atmosphere is friendly and joyous, culminating in a kind of all-day party!
