The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry was delighted to invite you to its 19th edition of the Tour de France Lunch sponsored by Bouygues Construction, on Thursday 22 June 2023 at RACV Club.
For the past 20 years, the Tour de France Lunch aimed to bring together cycling lovers and food & wine enthusiasts for a yearly amazing and special Lunch.
This year, the event brought la crème de la crème of the Australian cycling industry hosted by the Australian Voice of Cycling, Matthew Keenan. Our exclusive Three-Course Plated Lunch included:
- an interview with Richie Porte;
- a panel discussion focused on the growing role of women in Australian cycling with Pat Shaw and Peta Mullens;
- a discussion with Katie Brown from Amy Gillett;
- a Live Auction led by the Auctioneer Damian O'Sullivan from Marshall White for a one-day cycling experience with Phil Anderson;
- a Silent Auction with amazing prizes;
- and many more surprises!
Our event was also the perfect occasion to celebrate France's amazing and diverse gastronomy, with the finest cheeses kindly provided by Fromager d'Affinois, great food and of course French Champagne!
