MOSCOW, September 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Eight thousand cyclists will participate in the WOW Moscow Parade on Sunday. Their aim is to support the development of cycling infrastructure in the Russian capital, which is marking its 867th birthday this weekend.
The 26-kilometer route will start from the Worker and Peasant Woman Sculpture at the VDNKH exhibition center. It will run through Moscow’s streets and embankments to finish at the Krasnaya Presnya Park.
Since a cycling parade is not a sport race, all the participants will move at their own comfortable speed. Spectators will be able to see various types of bicycles such as mountain bikes, city cruisers, tandems, one-wheeled, highway and portable. The parade will end in a grand picnic outside the Moscow City business center.
Moscow’s Tverskaya Street will have its own picnic on Sunday. Festive youth programmes and music concerts will be organized at the Hermitage Garden and Tverskaya Square.
Military orchestras that are taking part in the Spasskaya Tower international festival will give concerts in Moscow parks.
Muscovites and guests of Moscow will be able to visit over 60 museums free of charge.
