April 22, 2016 On April 14th the Genevois got to enjoy a perfect spring day in Parc des Bastions. The park was buzzing with people enjoying festive activities, learning about cycling from many different perspectives and enjoying good food and sunshine. Children had the chance to test their cycling skills on an agility parkour, together with their family they tried out many funky bikes in front of the Reformation wall and the Slowbiking crew was busy encouraging one slow cyclist after the other. Champion of the day was Florian Zurbrugg with an incredible time of 6:23 minutes.
April 4, 2016 On Thursday 31 March artist and architect Daan Roosegaarde visited Geneva. A city most people associate with its beautiful lake amidst the Jura and Alp mountains and which is famous for its large number of ancient chocolatiers. But Geneva is also capital to the United Nations. The world's biggest 'multinational' dealing with global issues, not with an eye for profit, but with the sole purpose to sustain our planet and care for the wellbeing and welfare of its people. Geneve is therefore also the place where problem holders and problem solvers meet to discuss and deal with global issues that impact our daily live.
