Nice by bike

See Nice differently by bike...

Getting around Nice on a bike is child's play!

With its 125 km of cycleways, the Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolitan Area opens the way to discovery and amazement.

So why not take the opportunity to travel around in complete freedom without creating pollution?


Ride for miles along the Baie des Anges, go through the tourist centre at your own pace and take in the views and heritage treasures to be found in Nice, the green city on the Mediterranean.

As well as making life easier for you and the city, cycling offers the chance of a holiday off the beaten track, to be enjoyed on your own, as a couple or with your family.

Nice has been awarded the national "Ville Vélotouristique" (Cycle Tourism City) label. It offers cyclists a welcome, services and facilities suitable for cycle touring.

To encourage this economical, ecological, sociable and convivial means of transport, Nice has introduced the following for you:

  •  Vélobleu  Nice Côte d'Azur offers an alternative to the car in Nice, Cagnes-sur-mer and Saint-Laurent du Var: self-service bikes. There are 175 stations spread throughout the area (a bike station every 300 metres) offering 1,750 bikes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

  • 125 km of cycleways in the Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolitan Area: nearly 20 % of the road system in Nice where the incline is less than 5 % is laid out with cycle strips or tracks.
  • Nice Côte d'Azur has 8,206 parking spaces for 2-wheelers. 37% of these are for bikes.
These establishments have all signed the "Charte Accueil Alpes-Maritimes à Vélo"

This charter :

  • Commits the professionals to providing an appropriate welcome and services to tourists with bicycles
  • Enables tourists with bicycles to identify the appropriate establishments
