A bunny on a bike!

Hi all, I recently was in France again. Did you know that “vélo” is French word for “bicycle”? That’s good to know, because the city of Nantes just hosted “Velo-city 2015”. That was a 4-day event and regarded as a very important meeting to talk about bicycles and promoting cycling. More than thousand people from all over the world were there. Naturally, I met a lot of French people, but I also met people from Japan, Brazil, Canada, Taiwan… Maybe I will visit them one day. Have you ever been in those countries? I haven’t…

But I feel very lucky travelling in Europe. I especially like visiting schools that play my game. But this trip in Nantes was nice as well. I had several pictures taken, just see. The first one shows you our promotion stand that people visited. This way more cities and schools become aware that we have a great game and campaign to offer.

In the second one you see me trying out Nantes’ bicycle sharing system “Bicloo”. I wanted to be sure the basket was comfortable enough. You see, there was a big cycling parade. How big? BIG! More than 7.000 people on bikes joined for a great trip through Nantes. And I was there as well. You see a picture of the crowd I was with. Well, part of it, because they did not all fit in the photo. And some of the bikes were pretty weird… I also met a bunny on a bike that joined the parade! Isn’t that crazy? But that was not the only amazing thing I have seen.

The last day, I even met an elephant that was 12 meters high and 8 meters wide. As big as a house! And there were people on top of it making a walk in the park. Don’t believe me? Just look at the last picture. No, it was not a real elephant, it was made out of wood and steel. But still: quite impressive! You see, if you walk and bike, you come across some wonderful things. Let me know what you meet along the road!

Towards 100% sustainable trips?!

Hi guysss

I’m again in lovely Slovenia. This time I was hosted by primary school Ivan Cankar from Ljutomer. This school is a forerunner  working on the promotion of active mobility. The Municipality of Ljutomer reconstructed roads and pathways that leads to this school. Now the road to the school is completely closed for cars. They are reaching the level of 94% sustainable trips. By playing the TSG, they want to achieve the maximum of 100% sustainable trips!

First the pupils introduced me to how they carry out a theoretical online cycling exam . Only when they pass the test, they can perform the practical examination.

All classes are involved in Traffic Snake Game. Both junior and senior pupils played the game and I found out that all loved the game, even the older pupils.

We posed in front of the banner. That day all classes achieved their goal! Well done!

Wow, look at me where I am. Ready for the traffic parcours. Let’s see how good the children can bike and if they are already capable to bike alone on the road.

Here I was resting in shopping cart while my cyclist manoeuvred between the bollards. She did it very well!

The youngest pupils showed me the small traffic parcours with the many traffic signs made by the pupils themselves.

The coordinator of TSG in the school is Marjeta Kuhar. She is the driving force for the campaign and extremly enthusiastic about sustainable mobility. Thanks to her the game is so successful in the school.
