Paris Tour de France Bike Ride

Ride the Route! Tour de France Bike Tour

Please note that the 2020 Tour de France Bike Ride will take place on Saturday, July 19th!

Get up early on the biggest cycling day of the year and join our Paris Bike Tour on the final day of the Tour de France (Sunday July 19, 2020)!  Ride the nearly empty streets as our guides lead you along the famous cobblestone roads of the last leg of the 3-week trek. See the same sites as the professional riders as they speed around the middle of Paris, just a few hours after you!

We will begin at our office, 24 rue Edgar Faure, 75015, and head directly to the Champs Elysées where the bulk of this ride will take place.  Getting an early start grants us access to streets that will be too busy to navigate later on when the event is in full swing. Allow our guides to navigate through the streets as the city is waking up, with hints of pastries and coffee beginning to linger in the air.  We’ll make our way to the final stretch of the biggest and most celebrated cyclist event in history. Ride over the same cobblestones as the cycling world champions, and imagine yourself wearing the yellow jersey! Feel the excitement as crowds start to line the streets in anticipation of an 8-lap finalé just a few hours away.  They will be cheering for you as you cruise up and down this beautiful avenue, flanked by French flags and a buzz in the air. 

You’ll have an opportunity to ride portions of the Champs Elysées, including the usually hectic round-about circling the Arc de Triomphe. Stop for a quick glass of bubbly at the apex of the course, and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Triumphal Way which connects much of the right bank of Paris into a stunningly symmetric landscape.  Continue through the sleepy streets as the sun rises, and make your way back towards our office for our own grand finalé: coffee & croissants in front of the Eiffel Tower. Our staff will be there to be your personal photographers and capture this once-in-a-lifetime moment. We’re happy to provide you with a few optional itineraries for the rest of your day and clue you in about the best viewing spots for later in the evening.

FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point?

    Your tour meets at our office located at 24, rue Edgar Faure, 75015 Paris. The closest Métro station is Dupleix (line 6).

     

  • Expand/Collapse Is there a stop for food?

    We do stop at the end of the tour in the Champ de Mars for coffee, orange juice and croissants to celebrate this occasion in Paris! 

     

  • Expand/Collapse What cycling skill level do I need for this tour?

    While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount.

    Our Tour de France Bike Ride will not be going at the speed of the official Tour de France! This ride is perfect for intermediate-athletic bike riders. You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Nearly all of this tour is on roads although we set out early to avoid heavy traffic. We'll stick together up the Champs Elysée and carve out a lane for ourselves, so we ask that all guests feel confident with their riding ability. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    If you're not sure how you'll fare, we invite you to try our Paris Night Bike Tour first.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children, and if so, what are your bike options?

    Yes! Our Tour de France Bike Ride is a wonderful way for kids comfortable on bikes to discover Paris. We only ask that your children have been riding for a while, or, if they're under 10, you can reserve a tandem for them.

    You can use this bike chart to help you reserve the appropriate bicycles for your little ones. Please keep in mind that children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

    • For children up to 10 years old or weighing under 32kg (70lbs), we have two-wheeled tag-along tandems. The child passenger sits on a seat and can pedal or coast. All riders weighing over 32kg (70lbs) must ride their own bicycle. This is not an option for adults or anyone over the weight or age limit.
    • We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm).
    • Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, adult tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability.
    • There is no additional charge for trailers, tandems or baby seats. Due to limited availability, please book baby seats, trailers, tandems, 20” and 24” wheeled bikes in advance. 
    • Please Note: All extra small 20 inch and small 24 inch bikes are equipped with hand brakes.
  • Expand/Collapse Is a helmet included?

    Yes! Helmets are optional, but we have sizes for all ages available in our office.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Can we buy water at your office?

    Yes! All of our bikes come equipped with luggage racks so that you can take it with you on tour without having to hold onto it.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour offered in any other languages or only English?

    All regular tours are in English, but private tours can be scheduled in other languages.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Can I leave the tour early?

    Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate special requests like this on our public tours.  This tour is 2 ours and once you begin, we ask that you stay with the tour guide and the group until the end.  If you're interested in something shorter, please inquire about a private tour.

     

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    We are happy to offer full refunds for our Tour de France Bike Tour if the reservation is cancelled more than 72 hours (3 days) before the scheduled tour. Bookings of 10 or more passengers require seven days notice for cancellations. 

    Due to this tour being offered one day a year, this tour is not eligible to be rescheduled.

     

     

  • Expand/Collapse Are the tours cancelled if it rains?

    No, our tours run rain or shine, and we have rain ponchos available in our office for anyone that needs them. They are only €1 and we will gladly buy them back from you if they are not used during your tour. We encourage all guests to consult the weather forecast and plan your dress accordingly.
