Jul. 2nd | 0 comments

Monday, July 1st, 2013. The alarm clock first sounded like an assault… The last preparations had substantially shortened our night, so that we were still a little bit weary when we woke up. At 9 am, everything was ready: bikes were set to the millimeter and all of belongings were packed in our bike bags. We left LĂ©o’s house and started riding towards the official place of our departure: the Capitol Square, in the center of Toulouse. We knew that each pedal stroke brought us closer to the launch of our adventure. Little by little, the excitement was rising. We entered Toulouse and speeded up. And all of a sudden, the Capitol was in front of us…

Our meeting with Pierre Cohen, the mayor of Toulouse


Only then did we fully realize the scale of our project. Our parents were already here. Few minutes later, Sandrine Lavigne, founder of Planicook, sponsor and fervent supporter of Ride the Flavour joined us. The media also came to cover our departure. We spent more than 3 hours explaining our project in front of journalists and cameramen. The mayor of Toulouse and his first assistant came to meet us. A little tense by so much attention at the beginning, we then played the game and discovered with pleasure the enthusiasm which our project arouses. Full of spirit, we discussed successively with 3 groups of journalists. Thank you for your coming!
