The people of Lyon seem to increasingly opt for cycling during their daily journeys. Bike, work, sleep?
Two records broken
The day of Thursday, September 30 is that of daily use record of Vélo’v from Lyon. Near 50,000 of these self-service bicycles have been unlocked by the cyclists of the metropolis to circulate there.
A figure that can be explained by the strike that day in public transport.
