At Parc des Bastions we celebrated the Cycling Festival Europe with fun activities around cycling. We cycled from Place des Nations to Parc des Bastions, tested our skills at slowbiking (harder than you think!), got our bikes ready for the season, tried out all sorts of funky bikes, had our kids take a bike exam to see how well they can cycle, and tried to break a world record unofficially by making ourselves heard!
