One day action: to work by bike
On Tuesday, September 22 in Moscow and other Russian cities the "to work by bike" action day took place. It encourages citizen to do a bike ride, take part in competitions and take advantage of special offers from partner organisations. Furthermore the impact of the heavy morning traffic jams, familiar to everyone since childhood are discussed.
The main goal of the action day is to show that, contrary to existing stereotypes, the bike can be an effective and reasonable alternative transport in Moscow and the Moscow region. It is also a good way to stay fit and healthy, to improve the environment and transport situation in the city.
