For me, a bike is… An object of raw art. A way to move your house, to fill it or even to turn into it. To exercise when you have too much energy, to recharge when you lack some. It’s everything you might need, and everything you might not!

The Point Velo, for me, is... A place to learn, a place to live, a place to meet, a place to spend your best years!
