CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES

Promote cycling from a healthy lifestyle perspective.

Mobilize, encourage and increase cycling culture at UdeM... and beyond!

The Université de Montréal has proposed to Vélo-Québec and other post-secondary institutions to join it in creating a major bicycle promotion campaign aimed at students, notably by creating a student bicycle week in September, which is launching a movement in the Montréal region and elsewhere in Québec.

3rd campaign
Bike-to-Work Program

The Collectif Vélo Campus UdeM, with the support of the Sustainable Development Unit of the Université de Montréal, offers its employees and students an accompanying program to promote the use of bicycles for commuting to the University's main campus.

This program allows an experienced cyclist to be paired with an employee, teacher or student who wishes to embark on the active transportation adventure. The latter will be able to benefit from a 30 to 60-minute meeting during which he will be given advice on the necessary equipment (bike, clothing), safe driving and the ideal route to take. The beginner cyclist will also be able to benefit from assistance to make the journey the first time.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign (2nd campaign):

As part of the campaign, various activities are organized, mainly during the last week of September (student bike week):
-bicycle fair;
-welcome of cyclists with a smoothie;
-Bicycles burning by the Service de Police de la ville de Montréal;
-conferences on cycling;
-Electrically assisted bicycle trials;
-cyclist barbecue "king of the mountain";
-screening of films on the theme of cycling.
