An original outing in Marseille
Seeing side-cars on the roads has always intrigued me, and I always wanted to ride one. Today, it’s done!
It is with Eric, in love with his region and passionate about motorcycles, that our tour begins.
That day, we are two to try the activity. At 9:30 am, Eric comes to pick us up in front of the Tourist Office of Marseille. Our helmets (provided) on the head, we climb on the motorcycle side-car. The team leaves you the choice of the departure!
I climb behind our driver of the day and Jade, who accompanies me, sits in the “basket” of the side-car. The side-cars can accomodate a total of 3 people: the driver, and both participants of the activity.
Very vintage, Eric’s side-cars are magnificent, and attract the eye of passers-by! They are a real invitation to take the road, and to discover our city differently.
A small selfie to immortalize this moment, and we leave!
The feeling of riding a motorcycle sidecar is completely different from what I had imagined. We are rather comfortable, stable, and the road is not so much felt! It’s quite warm and it’s really nice to ride in the open air.
We start our city-tour by the “quai du port” of Marseille. In front of us, a splendid view on the Old Port and Notre-Dame de la Garde. We go on to the “Joliette” district and we begin to ride through the narrow streets of Marseille.
