Beyond sport, Paris-Roubaix Femmes is committed to supporting sustainable mobility. Cycling is the most environmentally friendly way to get around and is perfectly in keeping with the policy of the Tour de France: Riding into the future
The organisation's vehicle fleet is making the transition to electric mobility. The 50 vehicles that make up the fleet are plug-in hybrids. A fully electric Škoda Enyaq IV car will be present in the race in 2022. A mobile charging station will be set up at the finish to extend the fossil fuel-free range of the fully electric and hybrid vehicles as much as possible.
- Collection zones: riders will have specific collection zones to dispose of their waste, which will be cleaned by the organisation. This year, 4 zones will be available to the riders.
- Natura 2000 Zones: Respect for the environment and the preservation of biodiversity are priorities in the organisation of Paris-Roubaix Femmes. The BIOTOPE research firm has been assisting the organisers since 2011 in carrying out Natura 2000 (European network of remarkable protected natural spaces) impact studies. In 2022, the race will go through 4 sensitive areas. Special care will go towards protecting the Trouée d'Arenberg, which is both a Natura 2000 zone and a listed site.

Your donations will be sorted, repaired and handed out from the Recyclerie Sportive de Roubaix, which will open its doors in June. It aspires to collect, refurbish, redistribute and raise awareness of Zero-Waste Sport by reusing sports equipment. We are counting on your generosity!
