What you'll do
We've curated the essentials for which Paris is beloved+ carefully plotted the best, leisure-paced route to the 'must-see' sights (+ hidden gems not found in a guidebook!) This is 2 rides packed in 1! See it all in one, enjoyable ride...glide along the water, cruise curated medieval backstreets, see it from the best angles curated by local history- and-culture-'virtuosas' who know these places like the back of their, uh camemberts...? We created this ride for visiting friends--we would watch the best of Paris' sights glitter via charming little passages + bike lanes, little backstreets, the storied Seine river...the Best of Paris in one unforgettable ride! Our small, convivial, group zigs + zags to more sights, more interesting little corners...than can be navigated w/a 25-person Tour Group like the big tour operators! Our tiny band of bikers begin in Le Marais, where we share the best ice cream w/ our fellow travelers, then bizarre history of Notre Dame, St. Chapelle, Latin Quarter, Tuileries, Arc de Triomphe, Napoleon's Tomb, Champs-Elysees, memorable glide through inner grounds of Louvre. We celebrate with our new tribe in front of the Eiffel Tower and then enjoy a leisurely- and breezy- ride along the waterfront.
PARIS' #1 ice cream + a scoop in a cup or cone as we get to know our Paris Posse....and.....at the end....a SURPRISE . Who…
