You can post your own cycling in France questions on our Facebook page.
I will be staying at Marriott's Village d'Ile-de-France in Bailly-Romainvilliers (south-east of Disneyland Paris). Do you deliver the bikes to my location?
I am interested in renting a bike with a chair for 1.5-year-old baby – can you provide it?
Looking for your response
I wrote back:
Adults' and children's bikes both costs €15 per bike for 24 hours, or you can pay €60 for 5 days or €75 for a week.
For a child's seat, you will need to go to Fontainebleau or into Paris itself.
In Fontainebleau (where there is a a beautiful castle and 20,000 hectares of forests that are great for riding), there is a bike hire outlet called A La Petit Reine. They have child seats from around €20 a day. Their email is is firstname.lastname@example.org
