Frequently Asked Questions

What is an electric bike?

An electric bike is just like an ordinary bike. Ecological, quiet, with two wheels, two pedals, handle bars... but that's not all! The difference lies in a small detail -the battery. No need to shy away from the hill of Fourvière or the Croix Rousse, the electric motor assistance helps you overcome the difficulties, no sweat! Lyon to ride, you can sit back and operate the electric motor assistance from the handlebars. In short, the electric bike is like any ordinary bike but a whole lot easier!

What happens when it rains?

Not even rain can stop the real Lyonnais! Apart from thunderstorms and heavy rain, the tour will go ahead as planned, adapted in such a way as to avoid messing up your new hairdo. We will spend more time inside the monuments we visit, and the gastronomic pit-stops will be longer. If a tour is cancelled, you will have two options to choose from: another date or your money back.

Can everyone ride on an electric bike ?

Lyon Bike Tour is accessible to everyone over 1.50m in height who knows how to ride a bike... without stabilizers! For kids less than 25kg a safe child seat is an option available.

How i can order a gift card?

You wish to make an original present for someone you love?

You can also contact us by e-mail at the following address if you have any questions: contact@lyonbiketour.com

What should I wear?

The electric bike doesn't require more effort than walking, so there is no need to turn up in sports gear! Make sure you wear extra layers and gloves when it's cold. Don’t forget your sunglasses in summer.

How does the tour work?

Lyon Bike Tour is about visiting the city by bike, but that's not all! Your guide will make regular pit-stops - not for you to take a rest (you won’t be in the slightest bit tired!), but to let you discover Lyon’s various must-sees. For every monument, anecdote or picturesque view, we will stop for a little while to take things in (10 minutes maximum). An amazing photo you want to capture right away? Ask to stop whenever you want, having made sure that the others in the group agree and that it's safe to do so. 

What is there to do in Lyons, apart from cycling on an electric bike?

Your guide will be happy to show you the best bouchons (Lyon’s traditional restaurants), bars and other recommended haunts not to be missed during your stay. It's true, as Guignol the famous puppet once said, "Not everyone can be from Lyon"!

What about cancellation?

Up to 72hrs before the tour, you have the possibility of cancelling your reservation with Lyon Bike Tour, without having to pay a cancellation fee. Lyon Bike Tour will then give you a complete refund. However, if you cancel less than 72hrs in advance (3 days) of the tour date, the total amount will not be refunded (except in emergency situations). If Lyon Bike Tour happens to cancel a tour, you will be given a complete refund.

Can I rent an electric bike ?
