Le Paris Chill Racing est le principal collectif de cyclisme urbain français depuis 2010.
Ce collectif est animé par une dizaine d’amis, le PCR a pour habitude d’organiser de nombreux événements autour de la pratique du vélo (critérium, alleycat/course d’orientation, randonnée, cyclo-cross, cyclotourisme à travers l’Europe, goldsprint, etc.) et de promouvoir cette dernière au quotidien. Chaque mercredi, un ride est organisé à Paris, entre 40 et 100 riders s’y retrouvent
The Paris Chill Racing is the main French urban cycling group since 2010.
With a bunch of friends at its head, the PCR regularly organises various cycling events (e.g. criteriums, alleycats, cyclo-cross, country-side bike tours throughout France and Europe, goldsprints, etc.), and aims at promoting the use of bicycle on a daily basis. In addition, around 40 to 100 riders meet to ride at night through the city of Paris every Wednesday.
« Comraderies may be formed in many different manners. In Paris, where bicycles are the fastest—and often the most dangerous—manner of navigating the traffic choked rues, bonds are linked via two wheels, two pedals, a chain a bit of Ricard and a couple of Picons.
Paris Chill Racing (PCR), a group of young, Parisian professionals, clad in fixed-gear bicycles, were described by a local publication as a bunch of egotistical misogynists wreaking havoc upon the pedestrians in the rues of Paris. The female regulars who comprise a good 35 percent of the 45 or so cyclists dispute this statement. [...]
The idea behind PCR was not to create a group of hard-core cyclists driven by training, but only to spin around Paris and take a drink along. »
