Beyond the sporting aspect, Paris-Nice undertakes to support sustainable mobility. Cycling embodies the ecological means of transport par excellence and fits in perfectly to the Tour de France’s policy: Riding into the future.

The Ateliers du Tour

This year, the Ateliers du Tour will be present on Paris-Nice.  

They will teach you how to learn to ride a bike, repair it and give advice on safety while cycling. 7,000 cycling introduction diplomas were awarded during the 2018 Tour de France in 11 different towns and cities.

On Paris-Nice, the ateliers will be held in association with Vélo-école Le Cyclotrope:

Cycling and the planet 

  • Collection zones: In each stage of the race, riders will be able to use 3 collection zones to recover the items they have discarded (before and after the refreshment zone and around 20 km from the finish line) that have been cleaned by the organisers.
  • Natura 2000 areas: Care for the environment and the conservation of biodiversity are a priority in the organisation of Paris-Nice. The survey firm BIOTOPE has worked with Paris-Nice since 2011 on incidence studies on the Natura 2000 network (a Europe-wide ecological network of nature conservation areas). In 2019, there are 26 zones in 10 French Departments which will be crossed and protected by the race.
