On July 1-8, 2017, 20 riders from the United States and 28 riders from France came together for a 350 mile ride from Strasbourg France to Lentilly, France in rideATAXIA’s first venture overseas - rideATAXIA Europe, Le Peloton de l’Espoir (The Peloton of Hope).

The Association Française de l’Ataxie de Friedreich (AFAF) and Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) will co-fund a research project with the funds raised from Peloton de l’Espoir.
