The mass cycling race will be held on April 22 in Uzhgorod. For the third year ‘Night Ride’ will gather all fans of night riding.
This year two-wheeled transport lovers will be engaged in the improvement of the riding culture. There are no conditions for cyclists in the city nowadays, they want to attract the local authorities’ attention and conscious citizens to this problem by organizing such events. The absence of illumination affects not only the night riding amateurs. The dark streets scare city residents and tourists of the region too. Sewage and telecommunication manholes are also a delicate issue in Uzhgorod as well as parking spaces, which are not so many in the city.
A sort of briefing will be held for the cyclists – the riding culture should correspond with certain standards. The organizers of ‘Night Ride’ believe that Uzhgorod deserves the rank of a cycling capital. It is just necessary to make some efforts. The spring sports event program is special because the organizers will hold a social photo event during the race, where they are going to put forward three urgent issues: the street illumination, sewage and telecommunication manholes and secure parking.
