B stands for a simple, yet very ingenious invention: bicycle. Loft means ‘air’ in Luxembourgish. Perhaps that’s not the first notion that comes to your mind when thinking of what cycling means to you. To us, Bicycle:Air link is strong and organic.
Deep breaths whilst riding up the hill. Gulping for air whilst arriving on the top. Mouthful of air whilst coasting downhill. The air is essential to us. Being zero-emission, the bicycle helps preserve the clean air so that we can enjoy it longer.
B:loft asbl is about celebrating the bicycle which for us stands for fun, a sustainable means of transport, green lifestyle, a way to discover the world and a source of inspiration. We wish to foster cycling culture in Luxembourg. Apart from bringing together bicycle users, we also aspire to introduce non-cyclists to the local biking community.
B:loft program is diverse and offers indoor events and outdoor activities. The Bicycle Film Night, organised annually in collaboration with Rotondes, features the best bicycle movies finely selected according to the criteria such as: great storytelling, inspiring, thought-provoking, outstanding visuals. Next, the Adventurous Cycling Slideshow is an event where our guest speakers tell stories about their epic cycling adventures, illustrated with photos and video clips.
