7th General Meeting – Bike for climate – Outing to Verdun

Dear friends, dear members,

The Board of our association “Pour la Paix et contre la Guerre – Ad pacem servandam” called its members to the 7th General Meeting, which was held on 23 March 2024. You can consult the report of the GM by clicking on the following link:

Bike for climate – bike for peace

This is the third year that Ad Pacem has organised this peaceful initiative on two wheels. Cycling is good for individual health and reminds us of the many advantages of a policy that promotes cycling as part of our daily mobility (cycle paths in and around our towns, cycle parking facilities, etc.). Some of the wars currently being waged (notably in Ukraine, Sudan and Syria) are wars in which the aggressors appropriate energy resources to consolidate their dictatorial powers. Added to this is climate change, which calls into question our erroneous travel habits.
These arguments, combined with the pleasure of seeing you again, mean that we are delighted to invite you to our 5th cycle tour, which will take place on Saturday 18 May 2024The tour will start at 9am in front of the church in Elvange, Luxembourg, where you can park for free all day. We plan to return to the same place at around 5pm.
The route, of around forty kilometres, will take us mainly along cycle paths in Luxembourg and Saarland.
The programme includes a number of interesting visits: the European Museum in Schengenthe Roman villa at Borgand the Roman mosaic at Nennig, the latter two being among the largest and best preserved north of the Alps. We will also pass by the Remerschen nature reserve and the Remich esplanade, all set in the heart of the Moselle landscape and the surrounding vineyards.
All visits are free of charge for participants, as they are paid for by the association. Please bring your own provisions for lunch, in the form of a packed lunch.
To take part, please confirm your attendance by e-mail to [email protected] before 15 May.
