PRO VELO Genève calls on the authorities to take the measure of these disgraceful events, particularly two caused by rodeo riders or those heavily intoxicated.

The association has been fighting for years, constantly alerting the communes and the Canton to ill-conceived or unsafe development projects.

To show solidarity with all those close to the victims, and to underline once again the importance of separating traffic flows to improve safety for all modes of transport, PRO VELO Genève is inviting the public to join in a:
