“All volunteers must have their photos taken on a bike ride to work, post photos on the Internet and mark the distance they covered,” Olga Mnishko, one of the organizers of the action, told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
Actions to minimize the use of cars have been held spontaneously in different parts of the globe since the start of an oil crisis of 1973. Several cities have joined the action in Russia. Bike rides are held in these cities on World Car Free Day. In Moscow, for example, special tickets are issued to make public transport cheaper on this day.
This is a second action of this kind in St. Petersburg. According to the organizers, more than 3,500 people ditched their cars and used bikes last year.
