ABOUT

French Riviera ? Does it only make you think about yachts, expensive cars and sunbathing ? Ever dreamed of digging deeper and exploring the true provençal lifestyle, but outdoors and actively? This is where She’s a Cyclist guided tours come into play !

With many years of experience in luxury, tailor-made incentive-travel and experience design, I know, that it’s not WHERE you go, but with WHOM, that makes the WHOLE difference ! Thanks to my passion to cycling and local knowledge, I can offer you the truly memorably cycling tour experience in one of my « coup de coeur » region, which is in this case – the Cote d’Azur.

My tour is not only about cycling itself – my goal is to give you a true “taste” of French Riviera – which means we’re gonna start with a nice coffee at a legendary cycling spot, then follow the coastline, enjoy the view, take some picture-stops and finish with a traditional lunch – depending on time we either book a restaurant by the seaside or head to the best boulangerie in town for some delicious Pan Bagnat or Croissant aux Amandes. Whatever we choose – it will be a perfect completion of a really nice ride spent in the saddle.

Still hesitating ?

I rented a bike from Aleksandra & Chris while on holiday in Nice. The bike was brilliant - a high spec Cervelo which was well maintained - perfect for the big climbs around Nice & Monaco. The price was also very good compared to other rentals in the region and Aleksandra & Chris were very accomodating when organising pick up and drop off times. Would highly recommend the whole experience!

Alexandra and Chris created and supported wonderful rides through Cote d'Azur. Alexandra created the routes each day. Beautiful scenery, lightly traveled roads, interesting towns to visit. She's a very strong cyclist and a pleasure to be with. Chris's support while riding was exemplary. He problem solved quickly, was always available, and great company. I highly recommend French Riviera Like a Local.

We did the bike tour with Aleksandra to Chateau de Crémât, the experience was sublime, the routes are scenic, the bikes are very comfortable and the whole concept of making some effort to reach beautiful destination resonates well with the kind of vacation we wanted. More people in future should and will try the « travel by bike » concept !!

Amazing cycling experience hosted by Alek. it’s a must if you are visiting Nice. The cycling tour gives you breathtaking views and Alek is such an amazing experienced cyclist plus host - she made sure no one had any issues on the way. We had so much fun on our way to the Chateau. The ride was pretty comfortable even uphill because Alek guided us with ebikes. The best thing we did in Nice. Thankyou French Riviera like a local for this experience :)
