This year’s European Mobility Week aims to raise awareness of sustainable urban mobility with the motto “Moving sustainably! Let’s stay healthy!” and promotes behavior changes in favor of active mobility, public transport, and other clean, intelligent transport solutions.
“To celebrate European Mobility Week and Car Free Day, the Sunce Association is organizing the 10th Split Bike Tour. Given the restrictions to which public events are subject due to the epidemiological situation, we will mark the Split Bike Tour in a slightly different way, without a public event and a joint ride through the streets of the city as in previous years. Nevertheless, we want to see as many citizens as possible on a bicycle and jointly send a message about possible improvements to the cycling infrastructure and ways to encourage active mobility.
We invite you to ride your bike to work, to your favorite cafe, to the beach, or just for recreation from September 16 to 22 and to record all the problems, but also good already implemented solutions, and your suggestions related to the cycling infrastructure and thus participate in changing the image of the city.
The Sunce Association will award the best announcements with over 20 different awards from our sponsors and partners, and we will convey your suggestions and compliments to the working group “Strategy for the Development of the City of Split until 2030”, of which we are a part. In order to be eligible for the prize, images or recordings need to be shared as a post on Facebook or Instagram with the Sunce Association tagged.
We are officially starting the Mobility Week by setting up the Sunce Association stand on September 16, from 5 pm to 7 pm, at Marjanski vrat, where our volunteers from the European Solidarity Force will distribute fruit to all cyclists present.
On the spot, the remains of the fruit will be prepared for composting in biowaste containers and, in addition to the brochure, will educate all interested parties about the use of compost and various methods of composting.
We will end this year’s Split Bicycle Tour on Car Free Day, September 22, when participants will be able to pick up their prizes at the Sunce Association stand set up on the Split waterfront, at the bottom of Marmontova Street, from 5 to 8 pm.
At both events, all interested citizens will be able to get acquainted with the work of the Sunce Association, become a member, donate and thus contribute to the work of the association.
We invite all interested citizens to join us at the Sunce Association’s 10th Split Bicycle Tour and in this way mark this important environmental date,” said the organizers.–
