Many shops in Paris are totally sport-oriented, and some even specialize in a single sport, like running (La Boutique Marathon at Bercy Village). Cycling fans will find whatever they’re looking for at Bicloune or at BHV Vélo, both of which stock a vast range of road bikes and mountain bikes, as well as cycle parts and accessories to kit out your bike and treat it well. If roller skating is your preferred sport, you’ll want to head straight to Nomadeshop, the specialist shop for roller skates and kick scooters.
One particular store in Paris is on the itinerary of every sport lover - Au Vieux Campeur, in the heart of the Latin Quarter. With 30 specialist outlets, this Paris institution stocks a comprehensive set of equipment for any sport, from hiking and diving to rock climbing.
