Visit Bordeaux by Bike

The course :

Join us in the heart of the historic center of Bordeaux at the charming Place Raymond Colom, the ideal meeting point to start this magnificent bike ride.

On the agenda: Discovering Bordeaux together in a convivial atmosphere, lots of smiles and well-being.

Once equiped, ready for the adventure ahead, we will make our way towards the oldest door of Bordeaux, the Grosse Cloche (also known as the “Big Bell”) dating from the 13th century. Then we shall cross the Saint-Michel district, famous for its local market before quickly reaching the magnificent Pont de Pierre bridge to cross the Garonne river. This trajectory offers us a unique view of the “Port of the Moon” and its majestic facade dating from the 18th century. This will be the perfect moment to share with you the history of Bordeaux over the centuries.

We will stroll along the Parc des Angéliques (“Angelic Park”) and across the Garonne river via the impressive Jacques Chaban-Delmas Bridge to explore some of the city’s most important sites. We will discover the Chartrons district, the historical heart of the wine trade in Bordeaux, which is famous for its wine cellars.

We will resume our stroll along the charming Notre Dame Street. We’ll head for the beautiful Jardin Public (“Public Gardens”) and then the historic center, passing by the Quinconces esplanade and its monument dedicated to the Girondins, the Triangle d’or (“The Golden Triangle”), City Hall and the Saint-André Cathedral. Then we will go through the cobbled streets, pretty plazas (always animated thanks to their cafés!), and finally we will pass in front of the world famous Miroir D’eau (“Water Mirror”) before going to admire the second oldest city gate of Bordeaux and returning to our starting point.

The itinerary may vary according to the weather, possible city events.

Everything about the process was a breeze, bikes were comfy, our route found some amazing spots I never would have seen otherwise, and Jean-Christophe really knew his stuff!

Jean-Christophe is an amazing guide -- he helped us safely navigate throughout the lovely city of Bordeaux and was very informative -- he shared about the history and architecture, complete with then and now pictures, and also described more recent changes in the city. Jean-Christophe was very friendly as well. We would wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone (who can ride a bike ;-) ).

Awesome Bike Tour with JC! Jean-Christophe was the absolute best. My wife and I wanted to do a bike tour when we arrived in Bordeaux, and we found this company online. I was in a rush to get us something booked, and accidently booked for a French tour as opposed to one in English. When we arrived, he was kind enough to do the tour in both French and English for us and the other couple who had signed up for the day. We had an awesome time, and saw a lot of sites that we otherwise would have missed without his experience and wherewithal. Plus, he is just a really awesome person and gave us recs on restaurants, bars, and more. If you can ride a bike, and you like to sight see, do this tour. You will not regret it.

A perfect tour! We loved it! I am so glad we booked this tour of Bordeaux! Jean-Christophe is a very knowledgeable and caring guide with great English. He showed us around and told us the history of the city and of various monuments. Our bikes were extremely comfortable and were easy to ride. Each bike has a front basket with a water bottle and a rain jacket. The seats are very cushiony and comfortable. The ride was very easy since the streets of Bordeaux are mostly flat and many of them have a special lane just foe bikes. We had a lot of fun on this tour and would recommend it to everyone!
