During the event, officer in charge of innovation and technology projects of the capital city D.Ikhbayar said that over 300 athletes partook in the three types of cycling events. I am grateful to the cyclists who are promoting the advantages of cycling to the public and raising awareness on the importance of taking care of one’s health. And I am confident that the 'Bike Day' would expand in the future.


President of the Mongolian Cycling Federation P.Gankhuu noted that bicycle sports have been developing in Mongolia in recent years thanks to development of mountain bike paths and bike paths, including the paths connecting Nalaikh area to Ulaanbaatar city. Further, bike paths along auto roads will be built.
