Cycling adventure in Paris: A family tour with Edgar

Paris, the city of love and lights, is also a cyclist’s paradise, with picturesque routes and family-friendly stops.


Exploring Paris by bike is not only environmentally friendly, it’s also a fantastic way to create memorable experiences with your children. In this article, we present a family cycling itinerary in the heart of Paris. We’ve designed a pleasant route with five stops, for a perfect balance of fun, relaxation and discovery. And after a day of adventures, return to the comfort and convenience of your Urban Suite.

The ideal starting point: Jardin des Tuileries

Start your day at the Jardin des Tuileries, a magnificent garden nestled between the Louvre Museum and Place de la Concorde. Rent bicycles or borrow a velib (several stations nearby) for the whole family and take a leisurely stroll through this haven of peace. Let the kids play on the playgrounds or feed the ducks in one of the park’s many fountains, while you enjoy the serenity of the surroundings. Before you leave, grab some fresh pastries and snacks from a nearby café to give your little explorers some energy.

Stop 2: Musée du Louvre – A cultural adventure for all ages

Pedal along the Seine or Rue de Rivoli to reach the famous Louvre Museum. Although museum visits can be time-consuming for young children, admire the grandeur of the Louvre from the outside. Captivate your little ones with fascinating tales of kings, queens and knights, awakening their curiosity for history and art. Don’t forget to take family photos against the backdrop of the museum and its iconic glass pyramid.

Stop 3: Île de la Cité and Notre-Dame Cathedral – A glimpse of Parisian history

Continue your journey to the Île de la Cité, the historic heart of Paris. Park your bikes and explore the exterior of Notre-Dame. Involve your children in the fascinating stories of Quasimodo and Esmeralda, while admiring the cathedral’s breathtaking architecture. Nearby, treat yourself to a delicious Parisian lunch in a family-friendly café to regain your strength for the next stage of your adventure.

Stop 4: Shakespeare and Company Bookshop – Where stories come to life

Pedal towards the Left Bank and stop off at the charming Shakespeare and Company Bookshop. Let your little ones plunge into the magical world of books. Let them browse the shelves, discovering tales of dragons, pirates and faraway lands. This English bookshop will inspire young readers and stimulate their imagination.

Stop 5: Luxembourg Gardens – Nature’s playground

Pedal your way to the Luxembourg Gardens, a paradise for families. While parents relax amidst the greenery, children can explore the play areas, sail miniature boats on the pond and enjoy pony rides. Picnic in the garden and let the kids run free, enjoying the joy of outdoor play.
