Paris For The Fittest

The tourist visiting Paris can be a rookie or traveled veteran, he/she should not be weighed down with mind-bending dates and boring stories. Instead, great direction, all the educational info, heaps of unique and fascinating stories, the opportunity to meet other travelers, fantastic photo ops, a comfortable bike and superb personal service from a guide should be the focus on. Basically, tourist loves Paris and has a great time doing it touring the city.

Bike Tour is the perfect tour for both those new to the city and Parisian veterans. For the beginners, this tour will offer one a fantastic orientation and give one an occasion to see almost all of the sites one has read about. For the veterans, it will give an opportunity to learn new facts and stories about Paris that one has never heard. And biking is the best way to see the â€City of Light’.

It only seems appropriate that a group of cycling fanatics who are in Paris should see all of Paris’ sights from where else but a bicycle. It’s life imitating sport at its best. Fat Tire Bike Tours will show you Paris as one has never seen it before. The guides have been showing the world Paris for years, and while the tours are informative and thorough, they’re also entertaining & fun.

So, hop on a bike and cruise past the Eiffel Tower, Napoleon’s tomb, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, the Rodin Museum and many more of the city’s sights. A bicycle is a wonderful way to see France, whether it’s the neighborhoods of Paris or the French countryside. The Tour de France’s host nation, there is a reason cycling is so popular here, with the country’s mix of mountains, seaside and lush wine country.

Visit Paris in a unique and remarkable way, away from traffic and stress. The 5000 streets of the city will open themselves for any tourist. Quiet places, floral sites, artist’s workshops, and beautiful monuments all will be discover in an unexpected and amazing Paris, but also in a very safe way.

Take a long ride through the ancient districts and narrow streets of the Marais. Move on to the Halles and the Palais Royal, heading for the Louvre and the river, ending with the Islands and a glance at Notre-Dame.

Parisians have access to 314 kilometers of bicycle paths inside Paris and 23 km in the Boulogne and Vincennes woods. At the same time, temporary operations to stop traffic on some streets are continued. These streets are reserved on Sundays and public holidays for pedestrians, cyclists and roller-blades.

Some might think Paris may be too confused to pedal through, but actually it’s as safe as walking with the added bonus of being quicker as well.

Basically, the whole city is only a few kilometers across in size, so if a person hops on a bike, he/she can get to most destinations in half an hour or less with a good choice to choose from.

Cycling routes crisscross through main streets as well as quiet hidden avenues so an outlet is available for whatever excursion one might have in mind for the day. If this is the first visit to Paris, biking might be worth checking out as it offers a glimpse of the hidden as well as historic side of the city.
