Paris by bike: it's easy!
There's nothing quite as pleasant as covering the streets of the capital with a few well-placed pedal strokes. Ask at reception and we'll be delighted to provide information on the various bicycle rental services. If you don’t think you're quite ready for the hilly Montmartre or Pantheon routes, opt for an electric bike: it's the perfect way to see Paris without getting tired!
Paris by bike: invent your own route
Paris has become so much more bicycle friendly over the past few years and the number of safe, dedicated cycle paths continues to grow. You can follow the Seine riverbanks to main attractions like the Ile de la Cité, Notre Dame and the Sainte Chapelle, for example. Or, you could join the Champs de Mars for the Eiffel Tower. If you prefer freshness and greenery, visit the Bois de Boulogne or the Bois de Vincennes where you and your family and friends will enjoy riding along the shady bridle paths. Cycling in these unique places will give you another view of the Parisian lifestyle.
Book your stay at the Hotel les Plumes and take the opportunity to discover Paris by bike this summer. Organise your outing with our friendly reception team -we'll be happy to help you choose the best routes through the city.
