24 hours of vélib’

 Continuing my recent sporting theme, I thought I’d draw your attention to this – the 4th edition of 24 hours of vélib’.  On Sunday 14 June 2015, in celebration of the eighth anniversary of vélib’ bikes in Paris, part of the Champs-élysées (from Concorde to the Petit Palais), will be closed to traffic from 8am to 8pm, and a 600m circuit set up. The aim is simple: for participants to collectively cycle over 25,000km using the 400 vélib’ bikes to raise money for various associations. For every two laps cycled, 1 euro will be donated by the partners of the event. There will also be open air DJ sets, food trucks and a pétanque contest.  The event is free and open to everyone. See you there!
