On the occasion of the Le Mans 24 Hours Motorcycle Race, Alis took the initiative to organise and set up two "Motorcyclist Rest Stops" in partnership with the Road Safety Authority and the Normandy sections of the "Fédération Française des Motards en Colère" (French Motorcyclist Federation Action Group).
The first rest stop was set up on the Dentelle d'Alençon Service Area, for motorcyclists on their way to the race from Friday 23rd September 7:00 am to Saturday 24th 1:00 pm. The second rest stop was set up at the Domain d'Harcourt Service Area, for motorcyclists on their way back from the race on Sunday 25th opening at 10:00 am.
Over a thousand motorcyclists took advantage of these welcomed halts to make a break on Normandy soil. They were able to relax on loungers, either in the sun taking full advantage of the Indian summer or under marquis for those preferring the shade. They were also able to take coffee and pastries provided free of charge or carry out a bit of light motorcycle maintenance (tyre pressure and inflation, visor cleaning and mechanical adjustments).
On Sunday, physiotherapists were on hand to provide relaxing massages to drive away the fatigue so that the motorcyclists could resume their journeys in the best of form.
In addition, in order to improve road safety and traffic fluidity, Alis once again made its network open to motorcyclist free of charge, something that it has done every year since 2006 on the occasion of major motorcycling events.
All these initiatives were sincerely appreciated by the motorcyclists!
