For more than 100 years, the Tour de France has been one of the biggest and most prestigious events in the world of sports. But while it’s considered among the most iconic of cycling races, it has been open exclusively to men.
“Changing the Route” follows the story of a determined group of French female cyclists who aim to alter that reality. Charting their efforts to ride the same grueling route as the men, one day before the main race begins, this documentary offers deep insight into the women’s training, preparation, and the challenges they face. These riders may not be professionals, but they refuse to be denied the opportunity to take their place as equals in one of the world’s greatest sporting competitions.
