Cycling Challenge May 15 to 17

A LINK

Cycling races were born in Paris, long before the Tour de France was created.
All the greatest cyclists have roamed our roads: from Eugène Christophe to Louison Bobet, from Jacques Anquetil to Eddy Merckx, and more recently Laurent Fignon and Tony Gallopin.

With Grand Tour Paris, we want to prolong this historical link.
Celebrating this great land of cycling while allowing as many people as possible to discover the charms of our region.

When registering, each participant will be able to choose their pace.
Each start will be given by waves and managed by a pace regulator.

The Ultra version of the Grand Tour is a trial without any assistance and for experienced cyclists only.
