The FIA Member Organisation emphasised the need for bicycles to be checked regularly and explained the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as well as good behaviour on the road.

Participants were tested on their ability to carry out basic maintenance of their bikes. In addition, a safety kit was handed out, including a reflective jacket, a white bicycle light, a pair of gloves, and basic tools and equipment.

At the end of the activity, the participants and Cruz Verde employees understood the benefits of riding a bicycle and obtained sufficient information to deal with the unforeseen events that often arise on the road in the daily use of bicycles.
