You can post your own cycling in France questions on our Facebook page.


I am looking to hire a bikes for 15 people in Nice. Ideally we would like to rent from 10am-5pm.

We are staying in Nice but are considering cycling to Cannes, is this a fun route? And do you know how long it may take? It is just a sociable ride so nothing too difficult with interesting stops on the way would be ideal.

Let me know if you can help and how much this would cost.

Hi Matthew

That sounds like a nice ride.

My website is an information service, not a booking service, but I can offer the following contacts/info.

Nice has a very good public bike share program, which would offer you flexibility and value for money. You can hire direct from any one of the many docking stations throughout the city and neighbouring areas.

Here are some bike hire shop options from my Provence bike hire list – they should be able to provide local route advice on the best roads to take.

PS I log reader enquiries on the blog as Q&As in case they can help other readers.
