Who says women can't ride the Tour de France
In the summer of 2015 a unique event called Donnons des Elles au Velo J-1 was created, where three French women rode one day ahead of the male pro peloton at the Tour de France to campaign for women's tours to be held alongside the men’s and to raise awareness of gender equality.
Every year since then, they have repeated the feat with more women joining the Internationelles team to spread the word wider. The women are not professionals, instead training while holding down full-time jobs aka total heroes. We are really honoured to have a panel from the team with us at the Show to tell their story.
