Bike to School Day at VVIS

To coincide with the VVIS Annual Sports day held on the 22ndof June at the Lagos Sports Centre, a unique opportunity was created to invite students to cycle from Burgau to Lagos in the morning and then, after the activities, to cycle back to Burgau.

Students, teachers, parents and other members of the community were invited, as well as a local group of Senior cyclists, the Lagos Municipality, the Brigada de Trânsito and the GNR from Lagos, to accompany the enthusiastic cyclists on the journey. To promote this activity a contribution of €2 per participant was donated to the Wallacea Club. This is equivalent to the average cost of fuel to complete the journey in a car.

This event first started in the USA with the objective of raising awareness of the advantages of walking or cycling to school, known as the Walk/Bike to School organization. In conjunction with this activity, VVIS started a Science/Environment Club to raise the profile of Wallacea. All funds will be donated to the Wallacea Club to promote environmental concerns and raise funds to sponsor a research expedition to Mexico in the Summer of 2020.
