The "Réseau VAE" (electric bike network), what is it ?

Réseau VAE is a label, complementary with the « Accueil Vélo » label, created specially for electric bike users with 3 main objectives :
  • The guarantee of a welcome suited to electric bike users
  • The guarantee to be able to recharge freely your electric bike, so you can trace your route accordingly, with frequent relay points.
  • The proximity of activities as you wait for the bike to recharge (leisure area, restaurants, places to visit, ...)
