*COSFIC : – Organising Committee of the 76th International Federal Cyclo-Tourism Week
Every year since 1927, cyclo-tourists have arranged to meet up in the first week of August with the aim of discovering the charm and beauty of a new region. This week-long event organised by the Fédération Française de Cyclotourisme (FFCT) is the biggest gathering of cyclo-tourists in Europe. Following on from Nantes in 2013, this year cyclo-tourists will establish temporary quarters in the Auvergne.
The federation succeeds in attracting almost 14,000 participants for a week of convivial holidays. Amateur cyclists, passionate about cycling, will ride tens of different circuits (road, MTB or discovery rides) specially concocted for them, by as many as 1500 volunteers ready to welcome and look after them.
