Commitments in favour of inclusion and safety


A more inclusive race


Beyond sport, Paris-Nice is commited to promote durable mobility. Bicycling is the most ecological daily transportation mode, and suits perfectly the Tour de France policy: Riding into the future.

For the 2nd consecutive year, on Thursday 15 March during the individual time trial, Paris-Nice will welcome a team from the French Federation of Adapted Sport. This team will ride the same route just after the professionals have completed it.

 

Cycling helmets for young diploma winners

LCL, the partner of the Yellow Jersey and of all cyclists, highlights the young cyclists of the future by encouraging them to properly equip and protect themselves while practising their passion for cycling.

At the starts in Saint-Germain-en-Laye (Sunday 10 March) and Nice (Saturday 16 March and Sunday 17 March), LCL will invite 8 young diploma winners (in the Youth D and C categories, aged 9-12) to come up on the signature podium to personally receive a cycling helmet in LCL’s colours from a professional rider of one of the participating teams.
