Return to the scene of the first Vélorutions and Mobilization for the Climat
In 2014, the first Vélorution'Air d'Inspire actions took place in Chamonix and Les Houches. The mayor of Chamonix, freshly reelected, had agreed that the municipality did not do enough for cycling and promised advances, which are currently being realized. A diagram of active mobility has been defined in the flat part of the valley, Chavants aux Tines and budgets voted for the first achievements between the Bossons and the Gaillands. During the Municipal Council of February 15, 2019, a budget of € 1.3 million was voted unanimously for soft mobility and cycling routes in 2019. Achievements will therefore be accelerated.
In Les Houches, the newly elected mayor also said he wanted to make the missing link between Servoz and Les Houches, long sought by the valley's inhabitants, cyclists and Inspire, especially during a demonstration banned by the Prefect in 2013 The work is now completed and this track piens / VTT direct (but sloping) has just been completed. For cyclists, the passage through Vaudagne remains the entry point for the Chamonix Valley.
