Where to cycle in Nice?

In the sunshine of the Côte d'Azur, on the shores of the Mediterranean, with the mountains as a backdrop, what could be more pleasant than cycling in Nice? Nice, France's greenest city, has a large number of bike-friendly areas, making for some great sunny rides. Get some fresh air and see the region in a different light. To get around on your next visit or to discover the hidden treasures of Nissa la Bella, the team at Hotel Brice Garden have put together their favourite itineraries, all of which are suitable even for weekend cyclists. 


Getting around town by bike

Nice is an ideal city for getting around by bike. With its many cycle paths, you can be sure of cycling in complete safety. With Vélobleu stations (a self-service bike hire service in Nice, Saint-Laurent-du-Var and Cagnes-sur-Mer) all over the city, hiring your two-wheeler couldn't be easier! 

Useful information: there's a Vélobleu station right next to your 4-star hotel

All you have to do is pedal away and discover the wonders of Nice. 



"The littoral"

The most beautiful of cycle paths!

What to expect: 37km of escapism facing the Mediterranean.

Ride along the Promenade des Anglais to the rhythm of the waves. From the port of Nice to Cagnes-sur-Mer, this unique, totally safe and flat cycle path offers incredible views all along the way. Enjoy the beaches of Nice, Villa Masséna, Port Lympia, Colline du Château...

Walk along the Var 

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, we suggest you take a walk in the Parc Naturel des Rives du Var, for a 100% natural escape. This unique park stretches for 20km from the mouth of the river Var to the Charles Albert bridge. 

With its exceptional biodiversity, the area offers unique landscapes. Just a few minutes from the heart of Nice, escape to this natural setting where more than 260 species of birds live side by side. Take a break and get out your binoculars! 

For a breath of fresh air, start your outing from our 4-star hotel in the centre of Nice, along the Promenade des Anglais, then join the left bank by branching off at the airport.

A beautiful ride in the heart of nature awaits you.

Please note that there are no Vélobleu bikes on this route. Next to the Best Western Plus Hotel Brice Garden Nice at 21 rue de Rivoli, We-rent-bikes.com offers bikes for hire. By the day or by the week, choose the package that suits you best.

Tour of the Bellet vineyards 

Discover the Bellet vineyards by bike, and take the opportunity to admire the magnificent hills of Nice. A characterful and world-famous wine, it is produced only in Nice and has been classified as "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée" since 1941.

Did you know? Nice is the only major city to boast an AOC wine.

If you're a wine lover or a nature lover, this exceptional walk through pine and olive groves is for you. The walk is fairly easy and takes you along a small road to the village of Colomars. Superb views guaranteed!  It's around thirty kilometres long, with a difference in altitude of 630 m.

Nestling between the sea and the mountains, the city of Nice offers stunning landscapes to explore. Get on your two wheels and discover the authentic charm of the Côte d'Azur. After all that vigorous physical activity, enjoy a well-earned rest in the garden of your 4-star hotel or in your comfortable room in the heart of Nice.
