The most beautiful bike rides around Lyon !

Lyon, a splendid and culturally rich city, also has some wonderful surprises in store for cycling enthusiasts. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the metropolis, let yourself be seduced by the beauty of its surroundings by bike. Set off on an adventure on some of the most beautiful cycle routes around Lyon. And for a carefree getaway, don't forget to hire your bikes from our rental agency, Paulette, ideally located at 71 cours Lafayette. Get ready for a memorable cycling experience !

  • The picturesque loop of Saint-Cyr au Mont D'Or by bike :

For cycling enthusiasts looking for an urban escape, the Saint-Cyr au Mont D'Or loop, just a 22-minute drive from Lyon, is an ideal choice. This 3-hour cycle ride takes you through the small Monts d'Or massif. With a moderate level of difficulty, mainly due to its 984 m difference in altitude. You'll explore the gentle landscapes of the lower mountains and, for the more adventurous, the high hills that touch Mont Verdun . It's a wonderful choice for a day's cycling. What's more, you'll be able to make plenty of stops along the way.

  • Tour of the Grand Parc de Miribel Jonage by bike :

The Grand Parc de Miribel Jonage offers another cycling tour, this time a little longer and more demanding than the previous one. The 17.9 km circuit takes you across the island of Miribel-Jonage and lasts around 1 hour 20 minutes. This cycle ride offers an abundance of greenery and fresh air, while skirting the towpath on the Jonage canal.

  • The Saône from Fontaines to Neuville by bike:

This beautiful cycle ride takes you along the course of the Saône, starting in Fontaines-sur-Saône. This easy circuit is ideal for a family outing! It's a short loop covering a distance of around 14 km. It takes you along the wooded banks of the Saône, offering you an escape to the heart of nature and far from the hustle and bustle of the city. At Neuville-sur-Saône, you cross the river to return to Lyon on the opposite bank and complete this cycle loop.

  • Cycling around Orliénas :

Finally, for a sportier cycling excursion, head south-west of Lyon, around 26 minutes' drive away. This 23.7 km route takes you through several villages and the countryside of the Rhône department. This cycle ride will take you through Vourles, Orliénas and Brignais, alternating between roads and paths. It's ideal for those who enjoy long, technical rides.
If you need to hire a bike for one of these excursions, don't hesitate to visit our Paulette bike hire branch, located at 71 cours Lafayette in Lyon. We offer a range of bikes, from mountain bikes and electric bikes to VTCs and VAEs, to suit all your needs.

We hope these four bike rides have charmed and inspired you to plan your next cycling getaway away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
