What You Can Expect

Lyon Electric Bike Tour with Food Tasting

Enjoy a food-tasting session during your Lyon electric bike tour

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.

Trip was great. Megan, our guide, had a lot of great energy and spoke excellent English. The little bistro she took us to for our charcuterie and wine was outstanding. Went back there the next day and bought more wine and sausage!

We did this tour on our first day in Lyon and it was a great way to see the city and figure out where you want to go back to. The snack stop was unbelievable- we stopped at a local shop called B and D and the owner set us up with an assortment of meats, cheeses and other snacks to go with our local wine. Worth the time and money to go on this tour!

Five of us on a girls weekend to Lyon stumbled across the Lyon electric bike tour with food tasting. We varied in age and fitness but e-bikes are a perfect equaliser and very easy to get the hang of. The tour was excellent thanks to our charming guide Etienne and alongside the beautiful park and riverside cycleways, the best bit was whizzing through the long car free tunnel at top speed. Capping the tour off with a glass of wine and some local delicacies in a tiny old town wine bar was the ideal end to the tour. Highly recommended.

The bike tour was amazing. The electric assist motors make the experience almost effortless. We were able to see much of the city and gave us ideas of where to revisit on foot to spend more time to explore deeper. The tour guide spoke perfect English and was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable about the city.
