Cycling for All This “Car-Free“ Sunday at the Port. Join In

The aim of this convivial event, to be enjoyed with family or friends, is to encourage people to reclaim territory that is usually occupied by cars.

All ages are encouraged to get together on foot, on a bike or on a skateboard or scooter, etc.

As part of European Mobility Week, to spur along this green mobility activity, the Port district will be partially closed to traffic on Sunday 20 September from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.,

There will also be activities on the Quai Albert 1er (opposite the Rue Princesse Caroline): test drives of electric bicycles and scooters and a demonstration of the Monabike service by the Monegasque Bus Company.

For everyone’s safety, helmets must be worn up to the age of 18 when riding bicycles and scooters.

Health Measures

This event, organised by the Department of the Environment, will take place in strict conformity with health rules and barrier measures. It will be obligatory for those who are not taking part in sporting activities to wear a mask, and hydroalcoholic gel will be made available to them.
