5th Athens Bike Festival

Our streets, our choice

Like every year, the 5th Athens Bike Festival is organised during the European Mobility Week – an awareness raising campaign aiming at sensibilising citizens to the use of public transport, cycling, walking and at encouraging European cities to promote these modes of transport.

The focal theme this year is “Our streets, our choice” and expresses the need to evaluate again the way we use urban spaces. For years urban planning focused on facilitating the movement of cars at the expense of other forms of transportation. Now, it is time for the citizens of Europe to dream of the cities they want to live in. The urban space may be redesigned in favour of people and their needs – people who choose cycling and walking for their transportation.

The objectives for this year are to provoke changes in the priorities of transportation and to promote low impact and sustainable transport methods. Is there anything better than cycling?

Join us at the 5th Athens Bike Festival to select the bike you like and become one of the thousand cyclists that change the face of the city every day!

CONCEPT

Following the successful organisation of the previous four Bike Festivals, it became evident that Athens is a city with a growing cycling culture and that an annual cycling festival in the heart of the city is a must for the increasing number of cyclists.

This year, the 5th Athens Bike Festival will take place from 19 to 21 September 2014 in «Technopolis», an industrial museum of incomparable architecture that has been transformed into a multipurpose cultural space whose special atmosphere charmed the festival’s visitors last year as well.

The event will be organised during the European Mobility Week – an awareness raising campaign aiming at sensibilising citizens to the use of public transport, cycling, walking and at encouraging European cities to promote these modes of transport.

Organisers aim at offering visitors the opportunity to see and test the latest bike models, to discuss with the market experts and to experience an alternative lifestyle through the parallel activities that will present a different and active culture worth discovering.

All the major brands of the cycling market are expected to participate in the exhibition part of the Festival making the most of the opportunity to have direct contact with the end consumers
