Aims of the Activities of the Young Cyclotourists UECT (AJC UECT)

Create a framework for welcoming and actively participating in cycling tourism events for families with children.  Promote the practice of bicycle tourism by young people. To create the opportunity for these young people to get to know the countries of Europe and to make friendly contacts. Raise awareness among young people about the richness of the environment and ecology. To enable young people to discover European cultures and through these actions to contribute to training in European Citizenship for young people.


Organisation of the AJC UECT

This proposal provides for the organisation of the Activities of the Young Cyclotourists of the UECT (AJC-UECT) during the European UECT Week (SE-UECT) and in the same place. Thus, the organizer of the SE will also be the organizer of the AJC.

  • The AJC take place from 9am to 3pm, for 4 days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and Friday.
  • During the AJC, i. e. between 9am and 3pm per day of activity, the children are under the responsibility of the qualified instructors approved by the UECT. Outside this time, adults in care are the only ones responsible for the children.
  • The AJCs are an entire event. It is not possible to register for the day. All children will be registered for the 4 days of the AJC.
  • The children carry out a programme whose main lines are described by the Framework Programme below.
  • Registration for the AJC is done via the European Week Registration Form.
  • As such, children benefit from the insurance guarantees provided by the organiser.
  • The AJC have a specific programme (different from the SE programme), adapted to the young public and which emphasises the objectives defined by the UECT and by those responsible for setting up the AJC.
  • Activities will be held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. On Friday, the young people are scheduled to go out with the adults participating in the SE on the day's route and have a common picnic.

We warmly invite young cyclists to participate in the Activities.
