Athens celebrated the European Mobility Week with a three-day bike festival which ended on Sunday under the slogan "Clean air- It's your move."
For the fourth year, the Athens Bike Festival welcomed all the friends of cycling at the Tecnhopolis cultural complex in the heart of the city.
The event gave the opportunity to thousands of people to see the new bike models, to discover a new, much healthier way of life and to enjoy activities with their friends and family.
Last year, the festival attracted more than 30,000 visitors. Every year, more and more Greeks turn to alternative solutions of transportation due to the debt crisis. People want to minimize costs of living and bicycle is a way out.
The 4th Athens Bike Festival was held during the European Mobility Week, an awareness raising campaign that aims to make citizens aware about the use of public transport, cycling, walking and implement activities to create a more sustainable mobility culture.
