There is a very positive vibe and a festive atmosphere especially when we arrive on the Champs-Elysées. This year’s novelty is to ride through the Grand Palais nave which is going to be incredible. I think it is great that this experience can be accessible to 2,024 passionate female cyclists. Go Paris 2024!”
