Quai Romain Rolland - Lyon

Explore lyon during a pleasant ride by electric bike!

Accompanied by a guide,  cycle up the Croix-Rousse hill in no time at all thanks to your electric bike that boosts your pedal power. Once you reach the top,  you will be able to enjoy breathtaking panoramic views over the city. Ride a little further to come across the famous traboules, the secret passages that were historically used by the silk workers (the "Canuts") to get into central Lyon.

Throughout the tour your guide will tell you all about the interesting past of this neighbourhood, which was the stage of several historical strikes led by the silk workers.

Having explored the Croix-Rousse hill, you will head back towards Vieux Lyon, where you will be able to admire the typical architecture of Lyon, before reaching the Presqu'île.

Your tour will end along the banks of the Rhône, a calm and peaceful area where you can admire Lyon's barges and the Presqu'île. Let yourself be swept away by the historic charm of the Gauls' capital city!

Make the most of this electric bike tour through the heart of Lyon to discover the history of the city in a fun and unique way!
