With over 5,400 registered participants in wonderful sunny weather, Stopanska Banka Skopje had organized the 4th edition of the already well-known voluntary race “VOZI PRAVO, VOZI ZDRAVO”. With this we’ve succeeded for a short time at least to have streets without vehicles and people could walk freely and safely. Riding a bicycle, scooter, roller skates, skateboards, does not pollute but helps to reduce traffic jams, helps protect the environment and is also very fun and healthy.
This year, by each ridden meter, Stopanska Banka AD – Skopje will donate funds for a new urban equipment for the City of Skopje for encouraging the use of bicycles as means of transport. Very soon, we will upgrade our existing STB Children’s Velodrome and will prepare a field, together with the City of Skopje for building a new urban Velodrome with more challenges and interesting contents.
“VOZI PRAVO, VOZI ZDRAVO” vol. 4 in its spring edition offered a lot of interaction, entertainment and content on the finish area in the City Park for all guests and participants. The unofficial race started at 11 am from Porta Macedonia, and on the finish area in City Park, there were several positions of additional stages offering various contents, games, gifts, challenges and valuable lottery to the visitors. The Bank and the suppliers provided refreshments for all the participants, and of course, representative materials for all the participants. As previous years, we selected also winners of the valuable lottery: 5x Specialized Bikes, 5x GoPro Cameras, 5xFitBit bands, 5x MICRO scooters and other sports equipment.
Stopanska banka AD – Skopje, through its alternative channels, innovative services and products, directly affects the protection of the environment, but it also uses its relevance to represent an important topic such as these alternative types of transport in highly populated urban areas, that do not pollute, but help the healthy life.
In this context, the Bank placed and installed parking lots for bicycles, in front of all SB branches, our employees are using bicycles to work, the citizens of Skopje have been actively using STB Children’s Velodrome for already two years, we donated and installed 5 modern stations available for repairing bicycles and 105 parking lots placed on locations agreed with the activists who are intending Skopje to become velo-city, however, we are preparing new activities, as well.
