2nd Velorution’Air rally for the air and the climate

Successful new Vélorution'Air rally in the Mont-Blanc area. Nearly 200 cyclists, a few walkers and even horse-riders met in Les Houches, on Saturday September 20, to take part in the second Inspire Vélorution'Air rally. Local people’s repeated requests in favour of cycling facilities are starting to be heard in the Chamonix valley. Mayors and councillors have promised action. The will to help develop cycling as a way of getting around is becoming palpable at last in the valley. We are obviously very keen to work with local politicians so that such promises are turned into reality, as soon as possible.
