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

Brussels City has invited us on June 16th to the Beliris seminar for the creative and talented urbanist and mobility teams in Brussels. We will promote and celebrate alternatives to cars by introducing them to the solowheels, penny-farthings, tandems galore, and obviously the eight-seater bike called “le Grand Huit”. 

Summer Festival on June 19th in Joinville le Pont with fun bikes for young and old and of course Stand Up Paddling on the most beautiful spot closest to Paris. The golden age of sunny Sundays along the Marne river is here once more. Enjoy the riverside cafés, surfing on water and even playing Robinson Crusoe on Fanac Island which is totally car free. 

Singa. The bicycle tour is now a must! Whether in Lille, Gent, Paris or along the Marne river, visitors and groups alike demand the guided tour “by the Grand Huit”. What’s more it has also become a gift. And to celebrate the Refugee Week with the SINGA association, we will give it to refugees
