Our Amazing Race Bike Tours were created specifically for families with young cyclists. These tours have bright red envelopes to open at each stop, golden coins to collect, as well as souvenir medals to take home at the end of the tour. They’ll capture your kids attention, keep them engaged, and create opportunities for your whole family to play together and bond.

An Amazing Race Bike Tour can be run on either our “Best of Paris” route or our “Latin Quarter + le Marais” route. On either route you’ll make a pit stop on a market street for your lunch break where our local guide will help you to pick out the best French things to eat, no matter what your budget.

Everyone knows cycling is fun, but sometimes parents are hesitant to book a bike tour with their kids. To help take the uncertainty out of the decision making process we guarantee that all of our Amazing Race Bike Tours are safe for young cyclists and fun for all ages. So, join us on an Amazing Race! We’re sure that if you do, you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime

Clues & challenges

Choose your route:

On our “Best of Paris” route we focus on all of the most famous monuments in Paris. Some of the highlights on this route include: The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Orsay Museum, and the place where we cut off Marie-Antoinette’s head! This route also cycles under several beautiful bridges on the banks of the Seine River.

On our “Latin Quarter + Le Marais” route we stay away from the famous and focus on the lesser known charms of Paris. Some of the highlights on this route include: The Shakespeare and Co. Bookstore, the oldest café in the world, Street art displays, and a 2000 year old Roman arena. This route also cycles past the Luxembourg garden and on the rue des Rosiers.

The Best of Paris vs. The Latin Quarter + Le Marais

Most of the “Best of Paris” route is on dedicated bike paths, in open parks, in the courtyards of monuments, and along the river banks where no motorized traffic is allowed to go. The rest of this tour is run on quiet back streets and clearly marked bike lanes. Making it our safest and easiest to cycle route and great for all ages of kids.

All of the “Latin Quarter + Le Marais” route is on small, typically Parisian, backstreets. There can be light traffic on this route but in general there are more pedestrians than cars. While the route is very safe it can be slightly more tricky for very young cyclists to navigate (cobble stones). So, if your kids are under 10 years old, and want to cycle solo, we do not recommend choosing this route.

Similarities and Starting Times

On all of our private tours we make a stop on a market street. The “Best of Paris” route has Rue Cler and the “Latin Quarter + Le Marais” route has Rue de Buci. Both market streets are mostly closed on Mondays. If visiting the market at its peak is important to you, please make sure you choose to reserve your tour for another day of the week.

Finally, we always do our best to be as flexible as possible in accommodating scheduling needs. Our guides can start a private tour, any morning between 9am - 11am OR any afternoon between 2pm - 3:30pm. However, tour dates tend to book up fast. So, please book as early as possible to ensure you get the tour date and starting time that suits your family the best.

Frequently Asked Questions

What age is this tour suited best for?
This tour is ideal for any child who is able to read, ride a bike, and wants to have fun with mom and dad. So this tour is perfectly amazing for kids aged 7+.
I have little kids aged 1- 6 years old, will this tour make them happy?
While little kids always seem to enjoy the cycling part of our bike tours the challenges on the Amazing Race tour really won’t captivate them unless they are playing with their older siblings who know how to read and are making sure to include them in the challenges.
I have teens, will this tour be fun for them?

It really depends on your teens and their personality. If your teen likes to play board games, compete in sports, or prove their mental prowess to others then they probably will have lots of fun doing the challenges on this tour. Some of them are “childish” but all of them are fun and the guide who leads the tour for your family will be sure to adapt the game to be more or less silly depending on how your teen acts.

If your teen is a bit shy, or standoffish for other reasons, and that they wouldn’t enjoy playing games or doing silly things to complete a challenge then the Amazing Race tour is probably not a good idea for your family.

If you still feel that your kids would enjoy a bike tour then please know that you can book any of our public tours as private tours. This will allow you to have the personal attention of an excellent tour guide and enjoy some fun family time on your own terms.

Do you have bikes and safety gear for kids of all ages and sizes?

Yes, we’ve got 2 different smaller sized bikes for kids (or adults) who are too short to use our Blue Bikes™.

We have baby seats for kids that are between the ages of 1 and 3 years old (max weight 22 kg (48 lbs)).

We also have some cool Burley tandem attachment bikes that are suitable for little kids who are too big for the baby seat but too small to cycle on their own (max weight 38 kg (85 lbs) - max height 137 cm (4 ft 6 in)).

We do NOT have tandem bikes that are suitable for two adults. All adults who join our tour must know how to cycle on their own with confidence. Please do not book this tour if an adult in your party is unable to cycle. We do not have anyway to include them in this tour.
