Big Challenge Tour de France – Learn how to ride a bike is an operation that is both helpful and educational.
Aimed at schools, this operation is for elementary classes who arrange a cycling between Friday 10 and Friday 24 June and take advantage of this opportunity to learn to ride bikes (blocks or parts of blocks 1, 2, 3) or all). Purpose: 3,500 classes, like a 3,500 km tour of the Tour de France! This program teaches kids the right things to do on a bike when they enter college Lasting 10 hours, divided into 3 learning blocks, these fun and educational activities allow kids ages 6 to 11 to learn about cycling as a means of everyday movement in complete safety. Block 1 workshops allow you to master the basics of cycling, for example: get a good balance and learn to ride and steer your bike properly (pedaling, turning, braking). At the end of 3 blocks, students get their Savoir Rouler à Vélo certificate.
As part of the great challenge of the Tour de France – Learn how to ride a bike, there is a promise of solidarity with education. In fact, the goal is to train 100,000 children between June 10 and 24 to practice good cycling. For each child participating in one or more SRAV blocks, € 1 will be donated to Secours Populaire by ASO. The money raised will allow the association to provide a bicycle and accompanying equipment. This commitment is in addition to the action taken by Secours Populaire on the occasion of the Tour de France, especially with the operation of Les Oubliés du Sport. For nearly 15 years and thanks to its volunteers every summer, these operations have enabled about 700 children to enjoy a day off in the center of summer during the Tour de France. This year, 10 stages of the Tour de France will be affected by these days.
