We wanted something different, where pre-race preparations are not the key of the race. We designed this event as riders for riders. A challenge which shares the benefits to someone else than the organization. Don’t take it as a race but enjoy the event, meet other riders and have lots of fun.

The first finisher will choose the charity that will receive the money.

The race starts and ends at the same point in Lyon. There will be 2 CPs.

The particularity of this race is that the location of the first checkpoint is given one hour before the start! Up to you to make your own route. When you reach CP1, you will receive the location of CP2. The final distance will be around 1000km.
