BOUCHERVILLE, QC, May 11, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - As summer approaches, Groupe Robert and Club Cycliste Boucherville are joining forces to promote bicycle safety and responsible road sharing.
"The well-being of our employees and all road users is paramount to us here at Groupe Robert. This is also the time of year we expand our in-house awareness campaigns to focus on the importance of sharing the road. We all need to be vigilant and follow traffic safety rules at all times. As a leader, we are proud to advocate best practices and urge our 3,300 employees to be conscientious as they take to the road, be it by bicycle, car or truck," said Michel Robert, President and CEO of Groupe Robert.
Luc Lévesque, President of Club Cycliste Boucherville, indicated that the Club was delighted to have the support of Groupe Robert to "promote responsible road sharing in order to protect our cyclists and emphasize the habits that all motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should adopt. As Quebec's largest cycling club, with roughly 110 members of every age, we are proud to collaborate with Groupe Robert to encourage safe, courteous and respectful on-road behaviour. This partnership shows how committed major road users are to spearheading campaigns designed to educate people about these issues and make roads more accommodating for everyone."
