Being aware that the bike will become the privileged means of transport in the city, for the professional travels, for the leisure and for the tourists, Genèveroule offers free bikes on loan during the beautiful season and rental bikes throughout the year. The regular practice of the bike brings a simple solution for many societal problems : congestion of the cities, rarity of parkings, pollution, sendentarism.
The activities of Geneveroule are mainly carried out by staff in reintegration, the association receiving asylum seekers, refugees and unemployed people.
