Cycling tours and bike rentals

rent a bikeSet out to conquer Canal de l'Ourcq and Saint Denis Canal in an original way ! Discover the parisian canal differently this summer: bike and pedalo rentals are now available!

Discover the Ourcq by boat and bike

Soft traffic continues to take center stage. After COP21's spotlight on the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in 2015, L'Été du Canal continues to focus on soft mobility.

Discover the Ourcq canal on a bike ride along the Ourcq from Paris to the Parc de la Poudrerie in Sevran, followed by a guided tour of the park or a guided tour of the Poudres et Forêts exhibition.

A cycle path along the banks of the Ourcq allows you to enjoy long bike rides and discover the diversity of the canal's landscapes. Several bike rental companies offer their services along the Ourcq Canal, close to the cycle paths. Here are some free itineraries that you can also follow on your own: from Paris and from Sevran

Bicycle tours of the Canal Saint-Denis

Discover the little-known Canal Saint-Denis. Bicycle tours are available along the banks of the Canal Saint-Denis. In summer, you can admire the urban art frescoes created as part of Street Art Avenue.
