Cycle for Life 2016

From 11 – 16 September 2016 a 300km cycle ride will take place alongside the Canal de Garonne from Bordeaux to Toulouse.

The event is organised to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Support France (CSF), a network of registered associations helping English-speakers in France (and their families) affected by cancer. Hundreds of trained volunteers provide a complete range of services and support, whether that's someone to talk to, someone to make home-visits, accompany or drive people to consultations, or simply translate.

We at Allez-Francais are very proud to be an official sponsor for this event in 2016, and our very own Nigel Cowles, agent for properties in the Charente area, might also be taking part !

Finishing in the pink city of Toulouse on Friday 16 September, the cycle ride is a flagship event for a new initiative - Activity for Life - and CSF associations will be organising events all around France. To find one near you, see

Cycle for Life is a fun event and definitely not a race. Following the success of a similar event along the Canal du Midi in 2015, the organisers expect this to be a very social occasion with plenty of laughs at the lunch spots and bicycle banter along the way. The event is free to join, and participants can choose to take part in the full event, or cycle for just one or two days.
