In June, Paragone Europe organised a pilot test for the second edition of the bike2work campaign in Malta. The pilot test was a great success and attracted close to 100 newly registered participants. Employees came from sectors as diverse as Transport Malta, EASO, MSV Life, Malta International Airport and the University of Malta. Even Irish Ambassador Padraig Mac Coscair, registered and took part.
"The last time that I went to work by car was more than two months ago," said Adrian Leone Ganado, who signed up for the project. György Domján was effusive in praising his decision to switch to two wheels. "I ride around 320 kilometers every week to work, and I love it!”
Following up the pilot test Paragon Europe will launch the national wide bike2work campaign on 17-31 October 2016. Keep updated on the campaign website: http://www.bike2workmalta.eu/Malta still has a long way to go, the country has one of the highest rates of car users in Europe and cycling to work is not very common. The more important it is to have a bike2work campaign. You are missing a campaign in your country? Check here if there is one, or maybe consider to start your own!
