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

Sound and light paddle show at Lille’s future marina. Come and see the hydrolabe, the slack-line over water, watch numerous shows, and try fun bikes or stand up paddle with Le Grand Huit. The festival will be held on October 13th and over the weekend with a paddle choreography by night.


153 bikes roam the streets of Lille this September 13th for a  company convention. More and more groups want to discover the city in a fun and ecological way. Dutch groups, company meetings, architecture students from Lille and Marne La Vallée,...And we hope every participant will use a bike more, back at home, for their everyday trips.
