Zagreb is again leading the way in world for the number of people committed to take part in International Winter Bike Day…

International Winter Bike Day, which aims to get more bike riders on the road and encourages bikers to ride to work all year round, and not just when the weather is nice, will this year be held on 12 February.

International Winter Bike Day is an initiative that was launched 4 years ago in Canada, with Zagreb taking part for the first time last year. In 2015 Zagreb topped the list for the number of participants in Europe. Registration is open again for the 2016 day and Zagreb is again leading the way.
