3-Hour Marne River and Bois de Vincennes Tour €150

A lovely and easy 3-hour ride along the bucolic Marne river and through the Bois de Vincennes. Touring distance and sites seen will vary according to your cycling speed (you cycle at your own pace) but you will most certainly enjoy the lovely and lush banks of the Marne river with it's beautiful villas and depending on your cycling pace the Bois de Vincennes with its shady forest paths, small lakes and floral gardens (and maybe even the medieval Château de Vincennes) as well as one or two of the famous guinguettes on the banks of the Marne river are options at your disposal.

  • Meeting Time: The Meeting Time for this tour is flexible and can be discussed



  • Starting the Day: The meeting point for this tour is at the RER A station Le Parc de Saint-Maur in the town of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, on RER line A. Clients will be given directions from their accommodation in Paris to this station. We begin cycling once you have arrived in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés (meaning, we do not need to bring bikes on trains for this tour). I will meet you with the bikes at the RER station.

 

  • Touring Time: 3 hours from the time we begin cycling upon your arrival in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés. However, the standard touring time can be customized to add additional touring time. There is a supplemental fee of €50 per hour (payable in increments of 15 minutes, meaning €12.50 per additional 15 minutes) if you wish to customize this tour to add additional touring time to allow you to enjoy this tour at a more leisurely pace (perhaps you'd like to stop at a café or pastry shop for a snack or a drink). Or, you may simply wish to do more cycling and experience more of the wonderful sites I could show than could be covered within the standard 3 hour touring time. Or maybe you'd like some combination of more cycling and some snack/drink/relaxing time. The choice is yours. You're the boss!

 

  • Touring Distance: Flexible. You cycle at your own pace and cover as much or as little distance as your desired cycling pace allows (or you may take breaks for pastries/drinks) within the standard 3 hour touring time limit.

 

  • Level of Difficulty: Easy. With the exception of a few minor inclines here and there, the terrain on this tour is fairly flat. Additionally, much of this tour will be on dedicated cycling paths (i.e. - on cycling paths not shared with auto traffic) and for those portions of the tour where we share the roads with traffic the traffic is very light.

Additional Per Person Costs: €5.60 (RER A train)

Bikes are included in the tour cost
