Vélo Bleu

As a city that lays along the seafront, Nice has lots of great places to go cycling. If you’re keen to explore the Nice, Saint-Laurent, Cagnes-sur-Mer, and surrounds by bike, Vélo Bleu is an automated bike-sharing system that is easy to use. It also allows visitors the to rent a bike from one spot and return it to other Vélo Bleu station.

More about Vélo Bleu

How to sign up for Vélo Bleu

To rent a Vélo Bleu bike, you must complete a one-off telephone registration. It’s fairly lengthy, but worth it. You will need a mobile phone and a credit card for this process. Head to any Vélo Bleu bike station. You’ll be required to enter your credit card details on one of the station’s computers. Vélo Bleu will then ask you to authorize €150, as security that you will return your rental bike. Don’t worry: this amount will not be taken from your account unless you fail to return your rental bike.

After your registration, you should select the ‘Subscribe here’ option from the computer at the bike stand. You will then choose the duration of the rental pass that you would like. The computer will give you a number to call. By completing this call, the Vélo Bleu database will identify you and charge your credit card for the appropriate amount.

The final step is to select the ‘Find a Bike’ option. Another call is needed now to the new number that appears on screen. You will be instructed to choose your bike and it will be automatically unlocked. All Vélo Bleu bikes are fitted with a combination lock, lights and a handy basket on the front. Unplug the cable and you’re good to go.

As mentioned before, you don’t need to return the bicycle to the same station from which you borrowed it. When you park the bike, connect it to the monitor with the black cable. Vélo Bleu will automatically register that the bike has been returned.

Vélo Bleu fees

Once you have registered with Vélo Bleu, you are entitled to half an hour of free use per bike. After this period, bike rental costs €1 per day, €5 per week or €10 per month. If you keep the bike longer than you had originally planned when activating your pass, you will immediately be charged €1, and then €2 per hour.

Alternatively, you can take a bike for 29 minutes, return it and take another bike (for another 29 minutes) for free.
