The "Bike to Work" initiative was introduced at the United Nations in Geneva in 2009 thanks to our colleague and President of the Board of Directors of La Mutuelle, Mrs Caroline Lepeu. A fervent supporter of sustainable development, Caroline did not need much to convince us all that the national action, launched by PRO VELO Switzerland, was an opportunity to emphasize the benefits of regular physical activity in a friendly atmosphere. Even if Caroline passed away exactly 10 years ago, she remains in our hearts and this 2023 edition is dedicated to her.
"Bike to work" ran throughout May and June and ended with the traditional breakfast with a beautiful sunshine and in a festive atmosphere.
