Let Lyon inspire you
For the sensational sightseeing spots of Lyon in just 2 hours, look no further than the Compact Lyon E-Bike Tour! This efficient, fun, and family friendly day tour takes in Vieux-Lyon, the Saône, Tunnel de la Croix-Rousse, Tête d’Or Park, the Rhône, and Presqu’île as you capture the essence of Lyon in the most compact way possible!
Your brilliant bicycle tour begins in Vieux-Lyon, the exceptionally charming neighborhood known for its Renaissance-era mansions, traboules (narrow alleyways), bouchons (traditional restaurants), and the magnificent medieval Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste, boasting its outstanding ornamental clock. As you weave your bike through beautiful hilly streets and alleyways, charmingly cobbled, you’ll pass boutique bars selling Beaujolais wines and restaurants sending out rich aromas. Pedaling your e-bike along the Saône embankment, you’ll drink in unforgettable views of Lyon.
Your guided e-bike tour takes you through the Tunnel de la Croix-Rousse, one of the world’s most sustainable travel tunnels opened in 2013. As you cycle through this unique tube that burrows beneath the hill of La Croix-Rousse, you can enjoy stunning lights, video displays, and even music, installed for the entertainment of cyclists and pedestrians! This rogue route takes you on to the Tête d’Or Park, where you’ll discover a gorgeous green oasis amidst the city hubbub. The Parc de la Tête d’Or (‘Park of the Golden Head’) is a burgeoning haven boasting the Jardin Botanique de Lyon, a sublime boating lake, and even a small zoo where, free of charge, visitors can take a peek at primates, giraffes, deer, and reptiles.
Ride along the romantic River Rhône for the next leg of your bicycle tour, enjoying typically French viewpoints and a uniquely Lyon atmosphere. You’re pedaling towards the final stop on your sensational bike tour - the Presqu’île, right at the heart of Lyon! The name, translating to ‘almost an island’, accounts for the geography of the district, stretching from the Croix-Rousse hill to the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Presqu’île is a district of incredible architecture telling the long and varied history of Europe in its brickwork, whilst luxurious shops, restaurants, national institutions and charming cafes also populate this alluring area. It’s an iconic finish to your lively Lyon bike tour!
