Vocational integration through training in bicycle trades and refurbishment of used bicycles

  • Mobilité Active
Les Ateliers de l’Audace is an association created on April 20, 2020. The association aims to support people far from employment through a training process on bike mechanics and the multiple facets of the cycle.

The association has two workshops:
– Its head office and technical centre dedicated to services for professionals, located in Vaulx-en-Velin la Soie.
– Its workshop/shop with street in the 3rd district of Lyon dedicated to services to individuals.

The association, recognized as Atelier et Chantier d’Insertion (ACI), trains people who are far from employment to bike mechanics, for their lasting professional integration in a fast-growing sector, whose skills are easily transferable to other sectors.
The association operates in a strong circular economy approach, in order to repair, recondition and recycle bicycles all coming or in fleets.

The Boldness Workshops offer services for professionals and individuals:
– Professional services: Repair & maintenance of bicycles and bicycle fleets, sale and rental of bicycle fleets, collection of bicycles, subcontracting for repair and maintenance.
– Retail services: Repair and sale of used bicycles
Audace services are alternative, ethical, sustainable and inclusive!

The association makes a strong plea and carries out committed actions to make cycling practice accessible to as many people as possible and encourage an economical means of transport for the most precarious populations.
