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

This summer after the Tour de France in Annecy, we will love to celebrate the summer festivals in many cities, for the delight of children and grown up. Try and test your balance on our crazy  bikes. Nice photos and louds of laughter guaranteed.
