On Saturday 12 March the organiser of one of the largest cyclosportives in Europe, L’Ardéchoise in southern France, announced they are firmly committed to helping Ukrainians.

“Human values ​​have driven the Ardéchoise since its creation and cycling is above all based on learning to respect others, mutual aid and solidarity.  We are in solidarity with Ukriane.” Gerard Mistler, Founding President of the Ardéchoise

For every rider that registers for the 2022 edition taking place 15-18 June in Saint Félicien, 1 euro will be donated to humanitarian aid associations in support of the Ukrainian civilian population.
