City bike day 5.5. kicks off cycling week

On City Bike Day in Imatra, there are also cleaning tasks from the Million Trash Bags campaign. During the day, city bikes are free for six hours.

- The city bike station will also be brought between the Imatrankoski bridges during the cleaning work. It's worth using the bikes and pedaling further to clean, encourages the participation coordinator Heikki Laine from the city.

All Imatra kindergartens and preschool units participate in the cycling week.

 For a week, a cycling guinea pig has been hiding in Imatra's early childhood education and preschool units.

All early childhood education units are encouraged to go for a bike ride either to their own early childhood education unit or a little further and look for guinea pig posters in the yards of the units.

- The cycling guinea pig posters have a qr code that can be read on a phone, which opens an exercise video. In some units, the children have recorded videos themselves, the physical education instructor Suvi Seppänen says.

Family cycling day is on Sunday 7.5 May. Early childhood education encourages families to cycle together and look for a cycling guinea pig in the kindergarten's yards and windows.
