Bike to Care
Why ?

In 2022, Maison Louis Jadot 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.

 

A delegation of Bordeaux estates (Haut-Bailly, Giscours and Lynch-Bages) took part in the first edition. In 2023 they committed to taking up the torch to organize this sporting and charitable challenge in Bordeaux in May 2023.

In 2024, Bike to Care is back in Burgundy from June 10 to June 11.

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.

Selected associations

Each team is responsible for raising a minimum of €20,000 through their networks and/or fundraising events and will be responsible for choosing the association of their fundraising which must benefit the restaurant and hospitality sector. Here is the list of the 2024 Bike to Care countries. Teams and their associations are in the process of being set up– their online fundraising sites are available in their title link :
