Cycling routes

The city of Lausanne is only 15 minutes away by bicycle from the EPFL, and five to ten minutes are enough to reach the neighboring communes, which are home to many students.

The communes of western Lausanne have published a map of the best cycling routes.

In 2018, EPFL Sustainability, in collaboration with ProdActive, organized free cycling coaching sessions at EPFL. The goal was to teach cyclists how to navigate major roads at rush hour and get them to discover commuting routes in a more secure environment. To meet the preferences of a maximum of commuters, three types of routes were designed to or from Lausanne, Prilly, Morges and Renens (see maps below):

  • Scenic ride: a route that avoids traffic, in a pleasanter and more secure environment
  • Swift and relaxed: a route that combines speed with safety
  • Traffic and direct: a swift itinerary that uses the major roads of the urban area.
