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
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.
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.
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.

These are the Terms and Conditions that apply to any tour run by BLUE BIKE TOURS SARL in France under the brands BLUE BIKE TOURS or BLUE FOX TRAVEL.
In this document, BLUE BIKE TOURS might be abbreviated as BBT and BLUE FOX TRAVEL as BFT.
Because BLUE BIKE TOURS is a registered French company, for all tours taking place in France, only the French Law will apply in case of conflict.
Tours run Rain or Shine. BBT reserves the right to cancel any of its tours in case of an Act of God. In such instances full refunds will be given to anyone who was not able to take their tour.
BBT offers a 100% refund if a reservation is cancelled more than 72 hours before the scheduled start of the tour. No refunds are given for ANY reason once within the 72 hrs prior to the scheduled tour.
If the tour you took with us didn’t meet your expectations, we are happy to give a 100% refund as long as:
A valid credit card is required to secure your booking. We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express. None of your personal credit card and billing informations are stored by BBT.

All reservations made for children under the age of 18 years old must be made by an adult.
All reservations made for a child under the age of 18 years old must also include the reservation for an adult who will be 100% solely responsible for the safety and well being of the child while on the tour.
Every child under 13 partaking in a bicycle tour will be required to wear a helmet and a reflective vest by French Law.
The adult who accompanies the child(ren) agrees to the responsibility of choosing (a) properly sized helmet(s), adjusting the helmet(s), and keeping the helmet(s) on head(s) of the child(ren). Blue Bike Tours has helmets in multiple sizes for you to choose from.
Don't forget: Children (0-4) who will be riding in a child or baby seat attached to their parents bike ride for free, but MUST have had their seat reserved beforehand!
Children who will be riding on their own may be subject to a very short trial demonstration before the tour starts in which they will be expected to demonstrate: that they are well suited for their bike’s size and settings, that they know how to brake properly and that they are, in general, good cyclists who can be trusted to follow their Blue Bike Tours guide.
If the Blue Bike Tours guide, or manager, finds that the child is not, for any reason, a good cyclist then the guide, or manager, has the right to refuse to let the child follow the tour on a personal bike. This means they will either be asked to ride on one of our ‘tandems’ which is attached to that of an adult’s bike in a tandem fashion, OR even asked to ride in a child seat attached to the back of an adult’s bike. If the child refuses the change, then the guide or manager has the right to cancel the reservation, and not allow them on the tour.
If you or anyone in your party damages a vehicle, a Blue Bike, a child's bike, a helmet, a child seat, a ‘child tandem’ or any attachments, in such a way that it becomes badly disfigured, broken, or unusable, then BBT reserves the right to claim a fee of up to the price of the damaged vehicle or object.
You and everyone in your party will be kind and respectful to your guide. You and everyone in your party will do their best to follow the safety instructions given orally by the guide before the start of the tour and to abide by the policies outlined on this page. You agree that everyone in your party including yourself will do their best to follow the verbal directions, hand signals, and the physical example of your Guide during the whole tour and always look both ways when crossing a street.
You and everyone in your party will fully respect the rules of the French traffic. You will be solely responsible if you are caught by an authority breaking any rules or laws.
You and everyone else in your party agree that any accident which occurs while your party is on a tour, which injures or harms you or anyone in your party (in any way, including physically, emotionally, or mentally) is not in any way the responsibility of Blue Bike Tours.
You accept all responsibility for any accidents that you or anyone else in your party might experience while on a Blue Bike Tour.
