From Grenoble, avenue Gabriel-Péri is a 2×2 lane that crosses Saint-Martin-d’Hères, serves a vast commercial area including the future Neyrpic center, the university campus of Saint-Martin-d’Hères, then joins a departmental leading to the town of Gières.

«We are here in a commercial area with a number of cars. Even if it means coming to shop or consume at McDonalds, you might as well come by bike!explains Carole from Parlons-Y Vélo.

And Loïc Michel, Alternatiba/ANV-Cop21 activist, added: “A bike path here makes sense for residents who want to come from Gières by bike or VAE to work in Saint-Martin-d’Hères or Grenoble by bike. »
