European mobility week

For another consecutive year Maxcom will participate actively in the "European Mobility Week" in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

On the 16th of September, from 10:30, we will take part in the kids festival in the Tsar Simeon garden, which will have specially designed 5 playgrounds for kids from 3 to 11 years old. The children will have the possibility to participate in competitions such as fast and adept bike riding, tricycles and roller skates, games and fun activities regarding road safety.

On the 20th of September, from 10:00 o'clock, in park Lauta we will present an educational lecture for the bike. We will take an in-depth look inside the most important parts of the bike and maintenance. We will present the specifics of the different types for bikes and which category is suitable for which terrain. Of course, we will not miss to remember the rules for cycling in the city.

On the 21st of September, all bike fans can participate in the cycling marathon organized by North Plovdiv Disctrict. The competition will start at 10:00 o'clock and it will take the racers through the whole city.

"European Mobility Week" is an yearly campaign, starting from the 16th and ending on the 22nd of September, for sustainable city and mobility, initiated by the European Commission. The goal of the campaign is to inspire and promote eco-friendly transport means such as bikes, public transport and walking. During the week there are a variety of activities with the sole purpose of presenting to the broad public that it is not difficult to chose a different means of transport through the city. The most popular and interesting event is "A city without cars", where all the participating cities select a district or districts only for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. The slogan for the campaign this year is - "Smart mobility. Strong economy", which puts a focus on the initiatives, limiting the automobile transport in the cities and the positive side from economic perspective for the people, business and public.

The "European Mobility Week" reminds us that even the smallest changes such as riding a bike can have a positive impact on the quality of life - air and even more - inspire physical activity in our daily life.
