For the first time, CERN participated in the Bike2Work initiative for two consecutive months, May and June. 245 teams pedalled close to 300 000 km, corresponding to a reduction in CO2 emissions of over 42 tonnes.
CERN therefore came fifth in terms of the number of participants among all the companies in Switzerland taking part. This year, the Bike2Work initiative brought together almost 72 000 participants from 2400 companies across Switzerland, 11% more than last year.
At CERN, various improvements have been made in recent years to encourage cycling, including new showers, the new cycle path between the Meyrin and Prévessin sites, the installation of bike repair stations and better road markings for increased safety.
Cycling at CERN is a year-round pursuit, as evidenced by the Bike to CERN programme. Join the community at: https://espace.cern.ch/bike2CERN/Pages/ default.aspx
