Charlotte never thought she’d be a cyclist. From age 6 to 18, she was a gymnast who spent 10-15 hours training every week. But during school holidays in Switzerland, she worked as a lifeguard and had no car to get to work. Instead, she commuted by bike along Lake Geneva, admiring nature along the way and becoming a bike addict. She applied the same energy and will to succeed in cycling as she has to all other projects in her life.

Travel is Charlotte’s passion, and her favorite destination is her home: France. Each region has its own charisma, gastronomy, wines, culture, and history. Charlotte’s enthusiasm about France is easy to sense—and she is always generous when it comes to sharing her favorite family recipes from her grandmother and mom!
