On April 1, 2012, the Departure Ceremony of the Beijing-Paris-London Cycling Expedition, jointly sponsored by China-EU Association, Beijing People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (BPAFFC), and Federation Fran?aise de Cyclotourisme, kicked off at Beijing Olympic Green. “After the successful organization of the Paris-Beijing Expedition that honored the 2008 Beijing Olympics, this year’s event aims to welcome the 2012 London Olympics and promote cultural and sporting communication between the two Olympic host cities,” explained Alain-Jean Tusseau, president of Association Amitie Euro-Chinoise.

The 86 cyclists were recruited via the internet from China, France, Canada, and Belgium. “They aren’t professional competitors,” revealed BPAFFC chairman Chen Haosu at the ceremony. “With an average age of 60, they will spend five months traversing 14,400 kilometers on bike until they reach their destination - London. They will bring Chinese goodwill to the London Olympics and spread the spirit of solidarity, friendship, participation, and dreams.”
