The banks of the Rhône
This is where the ViaRhôna goes to Geneva or to the Mediterranean. The ViaRhône crosses Lyon on 7km from North to South with this beautiful walk without any car traffic.
The Tête d'Or park
One of our favorite places. With its 114 hectares of greenery, the Parc de la Tête d'Or is the green lung of Lyon. You can stop to enter the tropical greenhouses, discover the animals of the animal park or walk in the magnificent rose garden. With Mobilboard, the anti-theft device is included in the bike rental: don't hesitate to stop and visit a place!
The banks of the Saône
From Île Barbe to Confluence, cycling along the Saône is a must and particularly pleasant. You will love to see the different landscapes passing in front of you: natural along the waterfront in the North, urban and contemporary in the South. You will also pass by the Vieux-Lyon, one of the historic districts of the city and without doubt one of the most emblematic.
Formerly an industrial wasteland with a market-train station and the old port of Lyon, it is now a contemporary district with a thousand faces. You will love to ride your bike there and even stop at the nautical square to share a relaxing moment with friends or family.

What types of bikes do you offer for rent?
We offer rental of very light "Dutch" style city bikes (without the horizontal top tube) and electric bikes. We do not have mountain bikes. At Mobilboard, you can also rent a cargo bike (not electric), a trailer, children's bikes and child seats (you must rent a bike to use a child seat).
Do you offer accessories and equipment?
The anti-theft device and basket are always included in our rental packages. Our helmets are available (not mandatory above 12 years old) and are free.
We propose to rent 17,5L panniers, puncture-proof bombs and raincoats subject to availability. We advise you to book in advance on the website.
What to do in case of a puncture or breakage?
There is no assistance in our rental packages. In case of breakage or flat tire: we cannot pick you up, you must return by your own means. We invite you to call us to let us know so we can direct you to the easiest way to get back.
Our bikes are under warranty for each rental. In the event of a breakdown or puncture, repair costs will be charged but you will only be charged the 10% deductible.
Are your guided tours accessible to everyone?
Yes, we have designed our tours to be as accessible as possible. That's why the majority of our tours are on flat itineraries like our 2h tour in the Parc de la Tête d'Or or our 3h Grand Tour.
However, the 2h Panoramic tour is only done with an electric bike and is therefore accessible from 12 years old.
The only condition is that you already know how to ride a bike without the wheels. If you book a tour and you don't know how to ride a bike, you will not be reimbursed. To learn how to ride a bike, we recommend the services of the association La Maison du Vélo Lyon which organizes sessions.
