World Carfree Day on 22 September

Friends of the Earth Finland's member association in Tampere arranges biking "event" in Tampere in the World Carfree Day on September 22nd. The event is biking together in the city to have fun and show to cars that bikers have a right to exist and drive safely in the city too. Together with a big amount of people we can make an impact right here in Tampere where it often feels unsafe to bike in the road with the cars or diffcult in the path with the pedestrians. Gathering together will be 22.9.2009 at 5 pm in Tullintori (between Klubi and Passion).

What is it really about?:

"Every September 22, people from around the world get together in the streets, intersections, and neighbourhood blocks to remind the world that we don't have to accept our car-dominated society." Learn more here.


  1. Duly reminded and now marked in my diary! Thanks Aino-Maija! :-)

  2. Great :) Too bad I am not around in Tampere anymore that day, but hope that so many bikers will join.
