Have a look at our sportive tours suggestions.
Starting point as it suits you.
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 does NOT supply bikes, shoes or cycling clothes, when you go on a road bike tour with us.
We prefer that you can choose a bike that fits your needs and size and to let professional bike shops take care of bike maintenance.
We are happy to help you to rent a bike. We cooperate with 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 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 and Danish.
Lifesparkz Bike Tours encourages safe cycling. We follow the traffic rules and make mitigation measures to avoid infection with COVID-19!
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.
Helmet is mandatory on our trips as is 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.
Your guide brings hand sanitizer, but we encourage you to bring your own hand sanitizer. If you rent a bike through the bike rental company Bike Trip, which we cooperate with, the bikes and helmets will be cleaned for your safety before the ride.
If you do not feel well on the day for your tour, please do not show in respect of the safety of other participants in the group and your guide.. We will do our best to find a new date for you.
The group size in 2020/2021 will be limited to max 6 persons per guide in order to keep physical distance between cyclists in the group. We will cycle in one-one formation.
If we stop at a café or restaurant we will choose an establishment that supports physical distance and hygiene measures for their guests. We will encourage take-away places and make our stops away from crowds, when it is possible.
Please note that it is required to wear a face-mask in all indoor places in France that are open to public, incl. shops and restaurants (you are not required to wear them while eating off course). In Nice it is mandatory to wear one in outdoor public places as well.
Therefore we recommend you to bring a face-mask in your pocket. It is voluntary to wear a mask or not in outdoor public places in other parts of France.
We avoid densely populated and/or crowded routes whenever it is possible.
We encourage you to stay at hotels/apartments that support high hygiene and physical distance standards and to stay at the same accommodation during your stay.
If you book a tour with us and it turns out that you will not be able to travel or participate due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we give a full refund if you have already paid for the tour.
