« A 20-minute bike ride followed by a 13-minute
train journey between the campus and my job
at Moirans, that's the quickest route.
I go everywhere on my bike and it's free.
When I go back to Les Deux Alpes,
I leave it in the cycle park by the bus station. »

Pauline, a student from Les Deux Alpes, lives on the campus at Saint-Martin d’Hères
and works 3 days a week at Moirans.

Creation of the Maison du vélo

For a puncture or a repair, Pauline can now get her bike fixed and hire another one at the Maison du vélo located on the station forecourt. She can also use the self-service air pump available.
