Bikers’ breakfast for safe cycling - VIDEO
Wednesday, 8 November, 2017
At the beginning of the term the traffic is coloured by cyclists. It is important to pay attention to them, at the same time the cyclists should be aware of traffic rules. Therefore the goal of the Bikers’ breakfast was to draw the attention of students on bicycles.
Anyone arriving to the Medical School by bicycle could participate in the Bikers’ breakfast, moreover, the first two hundred cyclists were even given gifts like bells, prisms and other accessories, as well as awareness leaflets. At the Bikers’ breakfast every fiftieth guest won a new helmet. Moreover new bike sheds were established at the university and at the Clinical Centre.
There are many developments in the city to incite bicycle traffic, but Pécs is still not particularly bicycle friendly. However, it can be said, that the drivers pay more and more attention to the cyclists. And there are more and more forums to draw the cyclist attention to observing traffic rules.
