16 September
"Bicycle day"
Electric bike exhibition- Experts talk about the advantages of the electric bike
The city of Thebes may not favor the use of a classical bicycle for the daily movement of citizens, due to the unevenness of the ground (uphill-downhill), but the routes using an electric bicycle may make it easier to use, while at the same time way we ensure a cheaper and more environmentally friendly transportation.
So, the citizens will come to the Central Square of Thebes to get to know the electric bike, especially now that its purchase can be subsidized and take a free ride with it!


2. Workshop: I take care of my bike - I take care of my safety
The cyclists in this workshop will acquire all the necessary knowledge for the care of their bicycle and of course their road and personal safety!

3. Cycling!
Let's go for a bike ride in the city
Two routes. For our little friends and for adults

At the end of the events a lucky person will win an electric bike!
