Sleeping bags, tents and tickets to the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017 were played as part of the bike ride in Almaty. The sports action was organized in support of the forthcoming exhibition, "Kazinform" reports.
The event gathered about 500 people. By tradition, the bike ride in Almaty started at 09:00 am from the intersection of Al-Farabi Avenue and Tattimbet Street on the territory of “Nurly Tau” business centre and finished in the Central Park of Culture and Leisure named after Maxim Gorky.
The main prize of the competition was a bicycle. Almaty resident Zhanbolat Kanalin became its owner.
“I constantly participate in the bike rides. Today I came alone, but usually we ride around with the whole “Chameleon” group. I've been riding a bike for 9 years and I can say that I'm a professional. I'm very happy that I won this prize. I will continue to participate,” said the winner.
Within the city's large-scale program “Sporttyk Almaty” this year 20 bike rides will be held in the city.
