Map of official cycling lanes in Paris

Cycling in Paris? Here is a map of all official bike lanes in Paris (you can click here to download it too), plus tips and links to help your planning.

We often get asked if it's safe to cycle in Paris. I have cycled in Paris a fair bit – the first time was more than 20 years ago; these days, I pass through quite regularly – often en route to somewhere else.

Paris has improved immeasurably for cyclists in those 20 years. There are bike paths and bike signs all over the place and some areas – including almost the entire length of the Seine riverfront – are completely segregated from cars. That's not to say I don't still get off sometimes and push my bike across busy intersections, but I guess my point is that I don't shuder every time I think about passing through. And certainly I feel about a million times 'safer' on two wheels in Paris than in London.

In any case, to help your planning, here is a map of the ever-growing network of bike lanes the city is developing in an effort to help cut pollution and become more liveable. Click here to download it.
