Drop your car
Drop your car in Leuven and do the remaining 25 kilometers by bike,
every day! The goal is to have as many of you as possible to
participate (you can choose your own starting location). For each
km done by bike in stead of car, Mobistar will sponsor an amount to
be donated to a charity project to be defined.
for a better and greener environment, healthy body and mind and of
With drop your car I want to motivate colleagues to do the distance
home-work-home, or at least a part of it, by bike. I live in
Hasselt, therefore my goal is to drop my car in the city of Leuven
and do the rest of the journey by bike…every day if possible, or at
least 3 days a week…in all weather conditions.
The average distance is 25km, depending on the chosen route. For
those who prefer to ride on a mountainbike, I suggest to do a part
of the mountainbike track of Heverlee and Bertem to get to
work…those who prefer to ride on a racing bike, the menu offers a
beautifull track (mostly car free) next to the canal and railway
tracks of 27km till Mobistar.
Mobistar will offer an amount per km on a bike during the period of
the challenge and offer this to a charity project.
Why join us? The more people participate, the more bike kilometers
we have, the more money we ride togheter for charity….and of
course…it is fun to start your day with an inspiring and fresh
bikeride to work.
How can I join?
To join the ride to work, just call 0485 35 13 00 or mail me. You
don't need to cover the full distance…e.g. if you live near Bertem
or Sterrebeek, I will pass by bike on one of the carpool parkings
and we do the rest of the ride togheter.
Do I need to be an experienced biker?
No, not at all. Depending on the group or co-riders the speed will
be somewhere between 20 and 28kmh on average. The main goal is to
ride the bike to work….not to have the best average speed.
What time do you leave?
From Leuven at 7am near "Sportkot" or in Bertem by 7h30am near the
Carpool parking. So don't hesitate, it is fun, it is green and it
is good for your body and mind :-)!!
