With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611
Czech Minister of Transport supported "Bike to Work" campaign
Czech Minister of Transport Mr. Dan Ťok joined in the "Bike to Work" campaign on 3rd of May, cycling approximately 30 minutes along the Vltava river to Ministry of Transport offices. “I consider Bike to Work as a very useful project. I have enjoyed the cycling however better city infrastructure would help a lot all the bikers.” said Minister Ťok.
Bike to Work is a statewide competition. In its 6th year this year, it´s taking place in May in over 25 cities and towns across the Czech Republic. The project’s goal is to motivate as many people as possible to learn to use a bike as a regular urban means of transportation (alternatively to walk or run). If more people switch from cars to bikes and other non-motorised vehicles, they will not only improve their physical condition, mood and work relationships but they will also jointly contribute to cleaner air and more pleasant, safer and healthier cities where they live and work.
