Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide near the Palais de Justice in the center of Lyon, where you'll be set up with an electric bike. It makes for an easy way to sightsee, giving you the option of pedaling or letting the bike do some of the work.

Lyon is chock full of historical monuments and buildings, and it's also the culinary capital of the country – which is saying something in a place like France. Biking through this charming city is a great way to see the sights and work up an appetite.

The exact route for this Lyon electric bike tour varies depending on the day, but with an expert guide to lead the way you won't miss out on the best of this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Pedal through the tunnel of Croix Rousse, a delight inside with colorful lights and music playing, on your way to the Lyon Cathedral. Hear stories of the city's history as you ride, seeing both Lyon's best-known sights as well as some hidden gems your guide points out.

Keep riding along the  Rhône River, with its riverside path recently renovated to be more suitable for cycling, to the Place Bellecour. The square is looked over by a statue of King Louis XIV. From there, ride past the lake in Tête d'Or park, a popular spot for boating.

Take a break midway through your bike tour to refresh and reinvigorate with some of those famous local foods. Taste some locally-made cheese like St-Félicien, cured meats and a local pork sausage called rosette, sweet cakes and other morsels to share among your fellow cyclists. Wash it all down with a glass of local wine.

After the meal break of 30-45 minutes (depending on the tour), continue your tour through Lyon's Old Town, where you'll understand why it's a UNESCO-listed city. Admire historic buildings such as the City Hall, Palais St-Pierre, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon and the stately Place des Terreaux.

Upgrade to a 4-hour tour in order to continue your ride up to La Croix-Rousse for spectacular views overlooking the whole of Lyon. This extended tour also includes a stop at the 19th-century  Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, with yet more wonderful city views from its hilltop perch.

At the conclusion of your tour, your guide will lead you back to the starting point.

I had less than 24 hours in Lyon. Many times before I was getting a first impression of a city by guided walking tours. This was my first time on ebike. It's great to cover more ground in a short time. It's better when you stop for food tasting. It's the best if you have Johana as your guide.

Pablo did an excellent job making the bike trip enjoyable. What he couldn’t.do was control the weather. I think he and his boss were surprised at first that this two sets of of grandparents and a nice couple from New Zealand would actually like to tour Lyon on bikes in the rain. The electric bikes we used were amazing. They are easy to learn and flawless. We toured Lyon in the rain. Sometimes a light drizzle and sometimes a driving rainstorm. We quit when Pablo’s teeth started to chatter. Lyon is a beautiful city many miles of bike paths. Pablo will make it a fun trip.

Do this! It was a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time. The bikes are a little heavy, but once you get used to it, you get around very easily. Our guide was great, spoke perfect English, I'm so sorry I forget her name because she was so lovely and the stop at a pub for the food tasting was just perfect, gave our butts a little rest! We learned a lot about the city and environs, it was just perfect. I would do the same tour again if I came back and I would recommend it to my friends!
