MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/. An all-Russian "Cycling to Work" campaign will be held on May 20. Over 10,000 residents of the Russian capital city are expected to take part in it. More than 60 large companies, the government of Moscow and some federal agencies have announced their intention to join the campaign, according to the Mayor’s office website.
"More than 10,000 people will take part in the campaign. Opting for using bicycles will give the participants lots of good memories and bonuses. ‘Energizing kiosks’ with free water, fruit and other eats and drinks will appear in the streets of Moscow," the website reports.
Throughout the day, a variety of the city’s cafes, restaurants, bike repair shops and even beauty salons will grant discounts and bonuses to visitors riding bicycles. There will be also special tariffs for bicycle rental services in the city. It will be also possible to carry bicycles free of charge on suburban trains.
The main purpose of this campaign is to show that a bicycle can be an effective alternative to a private car and a supplement to the public transport.
