Gallery: cycle caravan a success

The 15th Dar Cycle Caravan was a success, with approximately 500 cyclists taking to Dar’s streets, says event organizer Mejah Mbuya.

The event, which coincided World Environment Day (Sunday June 5), was attended by the minister for union affairs and environment January Makamba as well as the EU head of delegation.

“The aim of the Dar cycle caravan is to promote use of bicycles in the city of Dar,” says Mbuya, of cyclist awareness group UWABA.

UWABA advocates for better engineering of cycle lanes during road construction, enforcement of road safety laws, education of road users, environmental awareness of the benefits of cycling, and encouraging respect of all road users.
