Outdoor sports activities attract a growing number of participants every year. The organizers consider the natural beauty and the competitor’s satisfaction when choosing their event locations. During these physical trials competitors are driven by their competitive spirit, nevertheless, this should not deter them from maintaining the utmost respect for their surroundings. During these outdoor competitions, the participants have a shared responsibility to not sully or damage the trails taken.
Ne Jetez Plus! Reminds all of its participants that in respecting nature we respect ourselves. This awareness campaign is lead by a large number of cyclists who can be found at Ne Jetez Plus! booths and by members of the Montpelier Sud Vélo Club.
Prior to the start of their events, members of SUD VELO meet with other cyclists to discuss their mission and raise awareness about environmental problems in order to discourage throwing away energy bar wrappers and gels in nature.
