Bike Tour for European Car-Free Day 2013
On Sunday, September 22, 2013, the European Day without a car in Split began to be sunny and burdensome. The Association Sunce, in cooperation with the City of Split, the music club O’Hara and Infozóna, have set the start of the bicycle tour on Sunday morning at 16:00 in front of the City Hall (Banovina) building.
The cyclists were gathering on the start line slowly, but certainly from 15:00. A few moments before the start of the bicycle tour, the last of a hundred participants came and were accompanied by the police with the route Banovina-Žnjan-O’Hara to the goal on the platform in front of the O’Hara club.
It was indeed a pleasure to see the column as domestic as foreign cyclists are driving through the streets of Split by driving lightly, showing how Split wants and can bicycle.
Sometime before 17 pm the participants gathered in front of the O’Hara club where the commemorative program started. After the introductory word of the organizer, their participants were playing a free lottery with a lot of prizes from our sponsors, such as bicycle equipment to theater tickets.
After the cheerful and rich lottery game at the O’Hara Music Club, the participants enjoyed the projection of educational and adventurous short films of domestic and foreign authors of cycling themes.
On this occasion, we would like to thank the citizens of Split for their response to this event and to all who have contributed to the organization of the bicycle tour. Special thanks to the Split Traffic Police Station, the City of Split and to all sponsors and donors of Bicycle tour 2013.
In expectation of the next European Day without a car, we send bicycle greetings!
