Cycling in the Bois de Boulogne, free as the wind

The 865 hectares Bois de Boulogne lies on the Western edge of Paris.It was created under Emperor Napoléon III, the nephew of the great Napoleon in the second part of the 19th century. Its designer, the Baron Haussman, admired the large central London parks, such as the beautiful Hyde Park and Regent Park. He decided to create two parks in Paris on the same model.

As a result, with the Bois de Boulogne on the West side of Paris and the Bois de Vincennes on the East, Paris enjoys two exceptional recreational areas.

The Bois de Boulogne is the most fashionable of the two. The Bois de Boulogne is a favourite destination of Parisian walkers, bicycle and horse riders.

Paris Cycles hires out bicycles at two locations in the Bois de Boulogne: on av du Mahatma Gandhi (metro: Les Sablons), across from the Porte Sablons entrance to the Jardin d'Acclimatation amusement park, and near the Pavillon Royal (metro: Avenue Foch) at the northern end of Lac Inférieur.
