The city's bike hire scheme will make your visit a breeze.
From a different angle
Its largely flat, agreeable geography (Fourvière and other hills notwithstanding); pleasant climate nearly all year round; and endless dedicated bicycle lanes makes Lyon one of Europe's best cities for two-wheeling. And it offers a wonderful way to get a different perspective on the city than either on foot or by coach. The local city hall makes it even easier with its public bike-hire service, Vélo'V, with more than 300 stations at key points throughout the city - both the most iconic parts of town and the farther flung, more off-the-beaten-track neighbourhoods. You can choose between hiring by the day or the week. This really offers a lot of pluses: get places more quickly, save money, and help the environment while you're at it.
