Who can join the tours?
The tours are for you, who love cycling and want to explore new landscapes and challenge yourself by biking in the mountains.
All of the tours are for women and men who already feel comfortable on a bike and have some experience in road biking.
If you are just learning to go on a bike, we can design a tour in a quiet area, and help you to get to know your bike and biking.
To go on our tours, we recommend you to be in a good physical condition as the climbs are challenging.
Bikes - bring your own or rent a bike
Lifesparkz Bike Tours do NOT include bike rental, shoes or cycling clothes, when you go on a tour with us.
We prefer that you can choose a bike that fits your needs and size and to let professional bike rental shops take care of bike maintenance.
We are happy to help you to rent a bike. We cooperate with one of the biggest bike rental service in the Côte d'Azur, Bike Trip. Bike Trip offers a wide variety of bikes at fair prices and has shops in Nice, Cannes and Menton. They can deliver bikes for groups on appointment.
Small groups and experienced guides
We have organised and guided tours for individuals and/or groups since 2016. We recommend group sizes of maximum 6 people per guide for safety reasons and to make sure that you get a good experience.
We set prices for group tours according to the number of people in the group, the hours and difficulty level set for the tour.
We design tours according to your wishes for a tour for one or more days. Our guides are experienced cyclists who live in the area and cycle here every day.
We speak English, French, Italian and Danish.
We inform you about local traffic rules and customs. We are happy to share our experiences in techniques for climbing and descending mountains. We want you to push yourself and embrace the challenge of cycling yet we do not want you to push yourself too hard going either up- nor downhill to avoid accidents.
We strongly encourage you to wear a helmet when you participate in a tour as well as a bottle with drinking water. Also make sure to bring some sweets/snacks to keep your energy level balanced throughout the trip.
Please make sure that you are covered by your personal insurance in case of accidents.
Please follow the official French directions about Covid-19 measures in France and I ask us if you are in doubt of the current requirements regarding face masks or pass sanitaire/ vaccination passport etc.
