The first ArcelorMittal national bike rally

Health and Safety remain ArcelorMittal’s top priority. As the traditional group-wide Health Awareness Program came closer, ArcelorMittal Luxembourg entities initiated on Saturday for their employees and families an event focused on sport, conviviality and discovery: an intersites bike rally.

Despite uncertain weather conditions, more than 80 people rode across the country’s bike paths from the South to the North. With refreshment and catering points, ArcelorMittal’s sites joined forces to make this first event a memorable meeting, especially with the major collective departure from the Belval site. With family or colleagues, for the more and the less experienced, each participant had a roadbook proposing different paths, cumulating a total of more than 150 km and set up in collaboration with enthusiast cyclist employees.

The organizers also provided a brochure extracted from the ArcelorMittal Luxembourg safety campaign, "Safety on the road", reminding the basics when riding a bicycle as well as of the fundamentals of the Luxembourgish law.

In addition to the good mood at this event, it was also a perfect opportunity to explore several ArcelorMittal sites troughout the country. At the collective departures and catering points, participants thus had the opportunity to complete a quiz on ArcelorMittal in Luxembourg.

This first intersite bike rally was a real success that will be repeated for sure next year.
