The Council of Europe will again participe in this year’s “Au boulot à vélo” challenge, which is organised by the Eurométropole of Strasbourg and the CADR 67 Association. The challenge was set up to encourage commuters to use means of transport that are respectful of the environment while keeping it fun.
How it works?

- From the 3rd to the 30 June record the kms you cycle from home to work and/or any routes cycled for professional reasons
Who can participate?
All Council of Europe agents based on the Strasbourg campus as well as in the field offices.
We encourage participants to use the parking spaces available around the various buildings of the Council, including the spaces along the Orangerie park and on Avenue de l’Europe.
You may have noticed that new parking spaces were installed for agents in the Agora parking.
2019 New Features:
This year we will again be able to collect bonus kilometres thanks to new challenges that the organisers have set up. You can read more about the new features under the Rules & Regulations of the challenge.
A « Second Life » challenge will also be introduced. The Association CADR 67, will organise a collection of bikes to be recycled between the 3rd and 7th June. Each establishment will be able to benefit from an extra 50km for each bike collected for recycling. Should you be interested, please send an email to the Amicale.
In order to streamline the production of goodies and in light of reducing the impact on the environment, the Eurométropole of Strasbourg has partnered up with CADR67 to distribute a unique number plate in the New York style goody, made of aluminium and in the colours of the 10 year anniversary of the challenge, which you will be able to attach to your bike seat.
Where can you find these goodies:
In Palais: Office 4008
If you so wish, you can also buy goodies on the website of Au Boulot à Vélo challenge and all profits go to the charity “Les enfants de Marthe” (“the children of Marthe”)

This year’s good news is that we will be able to include the kilometres cycled by our colleagues taking up the Helsinki to Strasbourg challenge. This will give us even more chances to collect points!
