Elancourt: an Olympic torch relay by bike will start from the hill on Saturday

The Vélo Ile-de-France collective wishes to join "more cycling" in view of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. To this end, the associations are organizing an Olympic torch relay on bicycles on Saturday in order to "claim cycling games. »

In a statement published on Monday, the collective affirms that there is "urgency to act on the part of Paris 2024, the State and the Ile-de-France communities to ensure cycling Olympic Games where spectators will be guaranteed to be able to move safe on the bike. The construction of a cycle network, the development of a bicycle rental and parking offer near the sites, will take place over the next six months. In 2023, it will already be too late to act. »

Two relays of cyclists will therefore leave from the suburbs this Saturday, one from the hill of Elancourt (Yvelines), where the mountain bike events will take place, and the other from the Parc de la Courneuve (Seine-Saint-Denis), for pass by various Olympic sites such as the national velodrome in Montigny-le-Bretonneux or the Château de Versailles which will host horse riding. The two relays will finally converge on the Pont d'Iéna in Paris (16th century) around 4 p.m.
