Ride the streets of Paris by bike this summer!

In summer, Paris adapts to the slower pace prompted by the warm weather, making it the ideal time to discover the capital by bicycle. The Tournelles has some recommendations for bike rides in the capital to enjoy with friends, family or your special one.

Exploring the streets of Montmartre by bike


As soon as the warm weather returns, treat yourself to an unforgettable stay in Paris and explore the city’s many attractions by bike. This means of transport enables you to enjoy the city to the fullest – just look at all the Parisians who hop into the saddle when the sun shines. To make it even easier, numerous cycle paths are arranged throughout the city. However, some districts lend themselves better than others to being discovered by bicycle, notably Montmartre and Ménilmontant, perched on the heights! So push those pedals! It’s the ideal way to combine beneficial physical activity with ecologically sound, economical and practical tourism.

A few bike rides to enjoy in Paris this summer


Among the scenic and delightful bicycle rides that Parisians enjoy in the summer, perhaps the most popular are those that follow the banks of the Seine. From Saint-Germain-des-Prés to the Palais Royal, from the Bastille to the Ile aux Cygnes, you can visit the most beautiful districts of the capital while following the Seine. Also remember that, throughout the summer, many more attractions and activities can be found on the quays of the Seine due to the Paris Plages summer event. The Marais district is also ideal for cycling, with its labyrinthine cobbled streets and numerous places of interest, and where you can alternate between shopping and enjoying refreshments on sun-kissed terraces. Finally, for a nocturnal ride in the City of Light as spectacular as it is romantic, cross the sumptuous court of the Louvre, before slowly ascending towards the Opéra de Paris.

Be there for the arrival of the Tour de France in Paris!


You’ll not be the only one using pedal power in Paris this summer!
