Belarus traditionally joins in the #winterbiketowork international day.

The Winter Bike to Work Day is held worldwide for the seventh time. 335 Belarusians officially joined in the event last year, and our country ranked the 12th worldwide by the number of participants.

The objective of the Winter Bike to Work Day is to remind people that a bicycle can be an adequate means of transportation all the year round. The event participants of both sexes pledge to ride to go or studies by bike that day. In order to be officially counted and demonstrate that your city and your country actually ride bikes in winter, please register at the website.

The Winter Bike to Work Day is organised in Minsk by the Minsk Cycling Community and the Centre for Environmental Solutions in partnership with Coffee Porappo coffee shop within the Business Bike Campaign under the Urban Cycling in Belarus Project with financial support from the European Union.
