The cooperative form corresponds to the objectives of the Wheel-free workshop. Indeed, Roue-Libre is intended as a collection of individuals coming together to meet their economic and social needs through a business whose ownership is collective and where power is exercised democratically. The two promoters are master's students in planning and regional development (ATDR). They are especially interested in various issues related to sustainable transport. Pedaling 12 months a year for some time now, they have gained experience in the practice of cycling utility and maintenance.
Located on the campus, the company meets the needs of many cyclists by offering a workshop out of their place of study or work. This prevents them from unnecessary travel associated with maintenance, which increases the competitiveness of the bicycle as mode of transport in daily life. Student target clientele, mostly tenant, rarely has adequate space for simple repairs. Roue-Libre fills this need through workshops adapted in addition to providing low-cost specialized and expensive equipment to purchase.
The services offered to members of the Roue-Libre Workshop come in four parts, namely: a) a friendly workspace and equipped appropriately; b) personal service consulting in workshop; c) various courses (minor repairs, general maintenance, advanced maintenance, wheel alignment, winter cycling, cycling and family, introduction to cycling, nutrition, safety and first aid adapted to the bike) and; d) development of service and minor repairs.

2200 citizens support the bike path on René-Lévesque Boulevard (March 2009) Top
It's done! With the support of thousands of cyclists, Promo-Vélo filed on March 2, at the regular meeting of City Council, a petition of 2,200 signatures supporting the creation of a bike path on René-Lévesque. This is in itself an achievement, because the bike is less a subject discussed during the winter season.
The filing of the petition was partly overshadowed by the media attention that was given to safeguarding the Red Bull Crashed Ice . Nevertheless, the petition echoed in the Executive Council of the City and a consultant to us by his enthusiasm following the craze generated by the project. He described the petition and the recent efforts of the cyclists as a "great achievement". This achievement is primarily yours, which is why we want to again thank you for the support you have given to the "René-Lévesque project."
Among the media coverage, we have a live interview on Info800 at 8:30 Tuesday, March 3 and a capsule on Canal Vox that will air next week (March 9 to 13, 2009). We also invite you to read the articles published following the filing of the petition:
" Petition of 2,200 names for the bike path on René-Lévesque , "published in the newspaper Le Soleil and Cyberpresse.ca , March 3, 2009.
Pedalling for the environment, many people are already doing. By cons, pedal hundreds of kilometers to the environment in the middle of February, that which is not common! From 8 to 11 February 2009, nearly a hundred cyclists climb aboard their mounts to raise awareness about sustainable transport. In addition, they will benefit from their arrival at the Parliament Building in Quebec City to meet with members of the provincial government and propose concrete actions that can improve the efficiency and environmental impact of our transport habits.

Support for the bike path project on René-Lévesque Boulevard (November 2008) Top
For several months Promo-Bike mobilizes for a bicycle lane born on René-Lévesque. This bike lane for cycling utility structure the cycle network. It will encourage a practice of daily and efficient bike that must find its place in the city network.
Promo-Bike feels that this would include cycling link benefits not only for cyclists, but also for the surrounding businesses. Indeed, of cycling ideally combines with attending local shops, unlike the largest shopping centers in the periphery.
Since it seems crucial to us immediately a significant step in Quebec in favor of a softer and active mobility, Promo-bike chose to circulate a petition that will demonstrate that cyclists give their support to elected officials in implementing the Project cycling link on René-Lévesque.
We invite you to sign the online petition to be filed at the Montcalm neighborhood council shortly.
Manifestation of 400 wheels for cycling in Quebec (26 September 2008) Top
Friday 26 September was held the manifestation 400 wheels for cycling in Quebec , an unprecedented event in the capital which proved a great success. More than two hundred cyclists of all ages marched on René-Lévesque Boulevard to support the development of a utility cycle network. The sentinels of the road and the Quebec City police were present to ensure the smooth running of the event.
The departure took place at Laval University and the course ended with a rally at D'Youville Square in a festive atmosphere. Protesters also treated to speeches from convinced Jeanne Robin, president of Promo-Bike, and Florent Joerin, event organizer.
The cause which rallied all these demonstrators was the promotion of cycling as a utilitarian means of transport and not just recreational. This was to convince the municipal authorities to develop safe cycling links on the main arteries such as René-Lévesque Boulevard. Without requiring complete replacement of the car, cyclists, however assert that their reserve specific spaces so that they can move in harmony with the other road users.
Thank you to all participants!
Twenty Promo-Vélo members stood up to September 11 dawn to attend the counting activity in the corridor connecting the Old City at Laval University. From 7:15 to 9 am, volunteers rescensé the number of cyclists who use the roads the journey despite the current unfavorable conditions.
The results of the count show that more than 1,600 bikers are moving on the east-west corridor, with a majority of trips taking place on Ste-Foy and René-Lévesque Boulevard. This fact highlights the need to develop a bike lane on one of these streets. René-Lévesque Boulevard seems to be the most realistic choice to accommodate this development. This project has also been the subject of a promise of Mayor Régis Labeaume recently.
So thank you to the volunteers who participated in the counting activity.

Parc de la Jacques-Cartier beach Ste-Foy / Quebec (2002) Top
For about five years, bicycles are prohibited, on pain of fine, the Parc de la Jacques-Cartier beach of Sainte-Foy. This follows the adoption by the municipal authorities of that time, regulation "anti-cycling" invoked for reasons of "security." However, dogs helped them remain and have access to the park.
Promo-Bike believes that the current regulation "anti-cycling" is abusive and no justification for security reasons. What we as cyclists, is to be able to walk next to our bike within the park, which is reasonable and legitimate.
Promo-Bike has made ??representations to the town of Ste-Foy , that the regulation be amended. Unfortunately, the city refused any discussion regarding a modification of the anti-cycle regulation.
Today, following the municipal mergers in the framework of the new large city of Quebec, the context has changed. Already in the summer of 2002, we read articles in newspapers, questioning the relevance of the current anti-bicycle regulations, citing possible "harmonization" with our other parks in terms of access. This file is not closed.
Promo-Bike is in favor of amending the current regulation, so that it is now possible for citizens who wish to walk "next to their bicycles" within this park, in this respect and harmony with park users.
Stay tuned in 2003 ...
