The National Bicycle Ride will start from the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects in Floriana, tomorrow at 08:30.
The riders will cycle through Blata l-Bajda, Ħamrun, St. Venera, Ħ’Attard and Mosta, from where they will head back through Ħal Lija, Birkirkara, St. Venera and Ħamrun until they reach the Ministry. The ride is expected to last around two hours. A number of Transport Malta’s electric vehicles will accompany the riders throughout the trip to ensure the riders’ safety.
Anyone with a bicycle is invited to attend. Registration is free of charge and starts at 08:00, in front of the Ministry. Every participant will get a free t-shirt and five lucky ones will win an electric bike worth around €1,400.
This is the 4th edition of the National Bicycle Ride. The bike ride is one of the initiatives and activities the Malta National Electromobility Platform within Transport Malta is organising to mark the European Mobility Week. The theme for this year’s edition is “Sharing gets you Further”, reflecting the notion that sharing transport modes will lighten the burden on the streets, making them more efficient.
The Malta National Electromobility Platform was set up by the Transport Ministry and Transport Malta to implement the Malta National Electromobility Action Plan. The plan facilitates the eventual electrification of private and public transport while promoting electromobility and electric vehicles, both with car importers as well as the general public and private companies.
