20 riders under the aegis of Cycling to Serve Austria and 6 people providing logistics with 2 buses and 1 truck covered 1000 kms between Kitzbuhel (Austrian Tyrol) and Paris in 4 days in September. 4 stages through the Tyrol hills, the Bavarian plains, the crossing of the Rhine River, the long plains and canals of the East of France to reach the Holy Grail, namely the Eiffel Tower. The effort was not futile, our Rotarian athletes would ride for the Growin association which promotes employment integration and also for Polio Plus. The group did not lack support from various Rotary clubs along the way. The Austrian Ambassador in Paris hosted a small reception for our Rotarians. Approximately 100,000 euros were raised during this tremendous action which received no shortage from the press.
