150 cyclists defy rain and take cycle run

The Malta National Electromobility Platform within Transport Malta is coordinating various initiatives and events connected to the European Mobility Week. The theme for this year’s commemoration is “Multimodality – Mix and Move”. This theme encourages different modes of transport as an alternative to vehicles.

On Friday morning 150 cyclists defied the bad weather and the sometimes heavy rain and took part in the Ġirja bir-Rota, an activity to promote sustainable means of alternative transport to strengthen the quality of life, decrease traffic congestion and provide a can environment of cleaner air.

Some of those who participated in the 20 kilometre ride said they would be prepared to greater use their cycle if roads are designed to be cycle-friendly.

Michelle Attard Tonna, the President of the Bicycle Advocacy Group said a bicycle is not only used for exercise but is used by many as a form of transport and to carry out necessary errands.

A National Day Without Vehicle Transport will be held on Saturday at Triq ix-Xatt in Sliema and Gżira, between 10am and 4pm when cars will relinquish the road for other people uses.
