Suite au confinement…Puis déconfinement progressif, nous constatons que des routes cylables sont de plus en plus aménagées.

Il est vrai que ceci ne fait pas le bonheur de tout le monde. Nombreuses sont les personnes qui, soit à cause de l’âge, soit à cause de diverses raisons ( peur du vélo en pleine ville , déplacements en famille avec enfants de bas âge etc… ) préfèrent la voiture, néamoins, il existe une catégorie de personnes, notamment les plus jeunes qui ont opté pour ce genre de mobilités. Et c’est tant mieux. Cela dégagera un peu les transports publics en ces temps de contamination et de distanciation physique demandée voire obligée.

Et c’est pour cela que tout le monde professionnel lié aux déplacements et mobilités notamment le monde du vélo est mobilisé pour créer, améliorer et proposer de nombreux outils pour celles et ceux qui ont opté ou opteront pour le vélo comme moyen de déplacement pour aller à leurs obligations professionnelles ou scolaires. (à condition que le trajet soit faisable en termes de killométrages) .

Concernant les balades et découvertes, nous avons découvert un produit sympa que nous pourrions comparer à Waze (GPS pour auto). Ce produit c’est le GPS pour vélo : GEOVELO.

Produit nouveau, pratique et qui devrait intérersser les cyclistes qui auront envie de découvrir les routes, les chemins divers que ce soit en période de vacances ou de sortie les week end.

Au sein de notre équipe, il n’existe pas de cycliste invétéré maheureusement pour le tester, cependant si d’aucuns / d’aucunes souhaitent le tester, ce produit pourrait sans doute les intéresser.

Cat of Istanbul


Une histoire incroyable. Un chat qui emmène son enfant malade à l’hopital pour qu’il soit traité.

Par ces photos, nous vous montrerons par étape, ce chat qui porte son bébé pour le remettre aux médecins.

A savoir en Turquie, les animaux soit rois / reines. Istanbul chouchoutte ses animaux. D’ailleurs, les turques appellent les chiens et chats ” mon fils ou ma fille” et ils se considèrent vraiment parents de leurs enfants à 4 pattes.

Du coup, les chats et chiens ont développé, de leur côté aussi, ce sentiment d’amour et de famille envers les citoyens turques et d’istanbul spécialement.

Ce qui n’empêche pas des exceptions par çi et par là comme partout dans le monde. Cependant, les droits des animaux figurent dans la législation turque.
