Carfree Celebrations Across Switzerland

The foundation “la Suisse à vélo” ("Switzerland by bicycle") is launching its national car-free program on Sunday, April 29 in and around Avenches, near the border of Vaud and Fribourg. The "SlowUp" initiative aims to encourage people to use alternative and healthier modes of transportation.

A 32-kilometer road around Morat Lake will be closed to motor traffic between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Cyclists and rollerbladers will take over the road while a variety of entertainment events are planned along the route. The itinerary runs clockwise and can be started from the city of Avenches or Morat. The official kick-off is scheduled in Avenches at 10 a.m.

Sounds lovely. Have fun, everyone!
