Turkmenistan, like the entire world community, is celebrating World Bicycle Day today.
This significant date was established in 2018 by the Resolution of the UN General Assembly on the initiative of the National Leader of the Turkmen people Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
It has already become a good tradition to hold bike rides in the country.
As is known, on March 15 last year, at the 61st plenary meeting of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, at the proposal of Turkmenistan, with full consensus, the Resolution “Integration of mass cycling into public transport systems to achieve sustainable development” was adopted. Its co-authors were 62 states of the planet.
The good tradition of holding mass bike rides in the country unites thousands of Turkmen citizens, as well as foreign diplomats and businessmen working in the country, and thanks to its international status, peoples and states.
