May on a Bike
Keeping our fingers crossed for the young cyclists!
This is the second edition of the May on a Bike action organized by the City of Gdańsk. The action is attracting immense interest. 20,000 students from 48 primary schools, 30 junior schools and preschools are participating. This is more than 4 times as much as last year. A record-breaking crowd of four hundred bikes and kick scooters is parked at Primary School no 12 in the Ujeścisko district of Gdańsk every day. Not only school students have joined the action. Teachers have chosen to swap the car for a bike too. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage children to be physically active every day. Regular physical activity reduces the risk of the sitting lifestyle diseases, including obesity and cardiovascular diseases. PGE ARENA is the May on a Bike action partner – we do support such initiatives!
Attractive prizes have been prepared for the participants. The most “bike-oriented” school will win a roofed bike shelter. The best classes from each school will receive tickets to science or amusement centres, including FUN ARENA, the largest amusement park of Pomerania, situated at PGE ARENA. The class will be invited to change their bikes for go-karts. There will also be prizes for students there – cycling accessories.
