To facilitate alternative transportation
and leisure activities in urban waterways

  • Welcome

    Le Grand Huit aims at offering you fun moments of happiness and joy by helping you experience the city in a different way with original activities. We hope to encourage you to move in a more fun and smarter way and to allow you to practise leisure activities without having to drive a car anywhere.

    For instance, you can take a private penny-farthing bike lesson with us or surf on a stand up paddle downtown on a river spot we were happy and proud to create. We can also organize corporate ECO-gatherings to help you save tons of CO2 emissions or simply make your trip to Gent, Paris or Lille an unforgettable one with a bike tour.

    In short, Le Grand Huit provides your company or group of friends with original, wonderful and photogenic activities which make sense

The Canals Raid will celebrate the 20th anniversary of "Lys without borders" on May the 21st and 22nd. 50 km during two days of stage racing that will take place on paddleboards but also on bikes for the teams who choose to race in relays rather than solo. SUP + bikes ? That's our logo !

The society WORLDLINE launches its mobility week on May 15th  with polls, eco-meetings, fun bikes, gyrowheel, electric bikes and above all scooters ! Indeed, it really helps you move around faster in your everyday life for short rides to the train or underground station. And you can't hesitate when the Grand Huit lends you a scooter for free for a month!

L'eau vive. That's the name of the Stand Up Paddle French Cup race we're organising in Joinville le Pont on May 13th and 14th. An event packed with sports, show and champions but meetings for the protection of water and the environment will also take place. And a lot of free entertainment on the river Marnes's banks, a kind of paradise so close to Paris !
