Proches à vélo - "Closer by Cycling"

Proches à vélo (“Closer by cycling”) was a physical cycling event and facebook webinar organized by the Embassy of France to the Philippines and Institut Français, with the support of the Firefly Brigade, SM Supermalls, SM Cares, and Siklista Ako TV. It was the 2021 event for “La Nuit des Idées” (“The Night of Ideas”), an event hosted yearly by local French embassies and Institut Français located across the globe, as a night to celebrate the collaborative exchange of ideas on the major challenges of our time. This year's event was inspired by the problem of limited public transportation in Manila, due to the pandemic. And so in response, cyclists from all over Manila have gathered to promote the health, as well as transport benefits of cycling on this one-night event.
