Stating that sport has a place in every part of my daily life, Mayor Ekrem Yüce said, “Sport is an important activity that should always take place in our daily lives. Cycling is one of the easiest sports we can perform in the usual course of our lives. In our country, we have not been able to increase the use of bicycles both in daily life and sports field to the level of many countries in the world. Recently, however, there are important studies on this subject throughout the country and especially in our city. We have many activities and projects aimed at promoting the use of bicycles in our city. We are trying to strengthen our infrastructure further. Hopefully we would like to see more of our fellow cyclists on the streets, especially for a healthy life. ”
