FAMILY BIKE OUTINGS
FOUR TOURS TO THE SOURCE
OF THE GRENY WERE ORGANISED BETWEEN MAY AND SEPTEMBER
These outings enabled Coppet residents, neighbours and friends to discover an important part of Coppet’s history, and to appreciate our countryside. The subjects discussed, and historic places seen, during a journey in time along this 700 year old part of our history offer a different view of our surroundings.
The objective of our association being the raising of appreciation of our town’s history, architectural heritage and environment, these short tours touch on a broad variety of interests that have resulted in the Coppet of today.
This attractive tour, for groups of up to 12 people,
will continue to available on demand during the summer months.
Follow the course of the stream which as of the 13th century was the key source of water and power to Coppet. An historical outing along a remarkably well preserved piece of Coppet’s history.
