A hat, T-shirt, shorts and trainers are ideal. We recommend that you bring a long sleeve shirt as the Mediterranean sun is strong during the summer months.
Bring a small backpack or satchel with your sun-cream, sunglasses, hat and of course your camera.
Note: We provide water bottles and stop frequently to refill.
If you’re carrying your luggage, or simply the stuff needed for the beach after the tour, no worries. You can safely leave your items in the shop during the tour, as the shop is shuttered and under alarm.
The Nice tour lasts around 3 hours at a leisurely pace and covers around 10 km (6 miles). We spend about half the time of the tour actually cycling. There is one small hill, which takes about 15 minutes to cycle up.

Remember that Nice can get quite hot in summer (up to 30°C/85°F). We believe anybody with an average level of fitness will have no trouble completing the Nice tour, even if you have not been on a bicycle for a long time. As always, before undertaking physical exercise it is advisable to consult your doctor if in doubt.

Our Nice tour is suitable for all ages and the itinerary has been designed specifically to avoid traffic and other dangers
to a maximum. We have baby seats (see left) for children up to 22 kg. For
older children that are not yet autonomous on a bike, we have a “tow bike” (see right), and we also have
ordinary childrens’ bikes in several sizes.
Please state that you are a family when booking or
making an inquiry as the number of child seats, tow bikes and childrens’ bikes are limited!

The bikes we use for the Discover Nice by Bike tours are lightweight, highly manoeuvrable, highly adjustable city bikes (see picture). As there is no top tube, it is always easy to put one’s feet down on the ground, which makes these bikes very safe in the city! For the tow bike and for our bike seats (see above), we use electrically assisted bikes.
It rarely rains in Nice during the summer! In the unlikely event that it does, we will supply you with a rain mac.
The Discover Nice tour lasts around 3 hours at a leisurely pace and covers around 10 km (6 miles).
Like any big city traffic can be heavy in places. That is why we have designed the Discover Nice by bike tour to keep busy roads to a minimum and take advantage of the quiet streets and cycle paths.
In the summer months, temperatures can often get up to 30°C/85°F in Nice. This is why our tours start in the morning and late in the afternoon.
