Our shareholder Philippe Givel is raising money for a charity "Velafrica" by cycling 3500 km along the French border. Philippe is innovative, he has designed a new type of touring with a sophisticated E-bike, optimizing the use of batteries, so that he can cycle a distance of 200-250 km a day, which is about 8 hours. This every day.

His adventure fits well the values of Katalysen, namely persistence and innovation. Philippe is one of the few remaining Renaissance men, having many interests, such as risks, options, innovation, adventure, ski and cycling.
We are deeply impressed by his endeavour.
