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

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 !

Fantastisch ! On May 6th, we'll welcome 125 dutch students from beautiful Utrecht for a cycling guided tour in Lille. It will be fun with beautiful photos of beautifully decorated dutch-style tandems and bikes 

Year of the scooter ! On Saturday, March 25th, we will launch a new style of guided tour in Lille : the scooter ride! It's a unique and original way to discover the city with your mates or your family and above all to have lots of fun with games and photos. Scooters are also a winner for businesses or local communities where Le Grand Huit can help develop this handy means of transport.
