Full description

This tour will allow you to discover the city in just 2-hours. See the highlights of Lyon, such as the Saône River, the Banks of Rhône, Bellecour Square, the Park of the Golden Head (Parc de la tête d'or) and many other surprising places.

Join your group near the Palais de Justice in central Lyon to begin the tour. Get outfitted with an electric bike — equipped for comfortable, effortless riding, letting you pedal, cruise, or a combination of both — and set off through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city. Steeped in centuries of history and considered the culinary capital of France, Lyon's vibrant mix of monuments, museums, squares, restaurants, bars, shops, and markets are a delight to explore — especially by bike. 

Your exact route may vary depending on the day, but your experienced guide will know all the nooks and crannies where Lyon's true magic lies. Ride through the Croix Rousse tunnel, lined with colored lights and music, and keep your eye out for Lyon Cathedral. Listen as your guide shares stories of Lyon's rich history and points out famous attractions and off-the-beaten-path spots only locals know. 

Continue along the banks of the Rhône River, recently renovated for cyclists. Spill out onto Place Bellecour, a famous plaza crowned by a statue of notorious King Louis XIV, and spin past the picturesque boating lake in Tête d'Or Park. Arrive back at the start point to conclude your tour.

We absolutely loved this tour. This tour was the perfect way to see different parts of the city without a lot of effort. We had Gabrielle and he was patient and informative. The bikes were easy to use and the included water was a must as we visited Lyon during an extremely hot period. The highlight of the tour was Golden Head park with the ride along the Rhône a close second. We would definitely recommend this tour.

C'est vraiment trop génial de visiter Lyon en vélo électrique. Cependant, quand on n'est pas habitué à faire du vélo dans une grande ville, bien que tt soit pensé vélo, c'est parfois qd même flippant. Je m'explique ; le guide nous dit au départ comment circuler et passer les feux des pistes cyclables. Le problème c'est qu'il est souvent loin devant et que nous en fin de peloton on s'est retrouvé seuls et qu'au moins 2 fois on a failli se faire bugner par des voitures car dans la panique et ne voyant plus le groupe on s'est engagé. Je pense que le guide devrait à chaque feu ou intersection s'arrêter, dire aux 1ers de se rendre en face et attendre, et lui de nous faire passer jusqu'au dernier. Au lieu de ça, il est devant et discute de l'histoire de Lyon avec les premiers qui posent certainement des questions et nous derrière on a flippé un peu. Le guide devrait rappeler les règles de sécurité et de courtoisie aux 6/7 premiers pour que les derniers ne soient pas en danger
