8 & 9 May 2023
Bike to Care
An event to support
the catering and hotel industry!
Bike to Care : Why?
In 2022, Pierre-Henry Gagey of Louis Jadot company and his Burgundian friends* created an event called “Bike to Care” to raise funds for associations in the restaurant and hospitality sectors in general that care for people in difficulty, encourage new vocations and support the training of upcoming talent.
During its first edition, in Burgundy, 250,000€ was raised for charities around the world.
A delegation of Bordeaux estates (Haut-Bailly, Giscours and Lynch-Bages) took part in the first edition. They are committed to taking up the torch to organize this sporting and charitable challenge in Bordeaux on 8th and 9th May 2023. Médoc, Graves and Sauternes will be the focus of a course of almost 200 km through the Bordeaux countryside.
Bike to Care : for who?
The aim of each individual racer will not be to reach the finishing post first, but to take up the challenge of completing the course. In addition, each competitor will be expected to raise a significant amount of money which will become part of a kitty.
The entire sum of money raised by the participating teams will be handed over to organisations working towards the training of up-and-coming young chefs and sommeliers.
The associations for the 2023 edition are not yet selected, see you soon for more information.
