VELO-TORO is looking for volunteers Paris-Madrid (125th anniversary)

We are looking for volunteer cyclists to do Paris-Madrid in 8 days as Edouard de Pérrodil and Henri Farman did in 1893. The aim of our project is to pay tribute in 2018 to these pioneers of cycling tourism and to celebrate the 125th anniversary of their adventure. We are also looking for accommodation at each stage of the tour. For more information,

I sthis for 2018 or 2019?

Is this for 2018 or 2019?

The website says "We will leave Paris on July 20, 2018 and arrive in Madrid on the 27th of the same month"

Winter 2018 would be great!

The website indicates planned dates for July 2018, but the project could not be carried out for logistical reasons. 

Now, we want to do it before the end of the year (november o december), even if only with two people to commemorate it in 2018.  

Then we'll see if it's possible to do it every summer with more people.
