“Safety of Cyclists on Roads” campaign initiated in Istria
Thanks to its unique geographic position, the type of terrain, tourist attractions and quality of service, Istria has been recording increased number of guest cyclists every year.
The objective of the campaign is to raise the awareness of drivers of motor vehicles about the issue of safety of cyclists on roads and the importance of overtaking cyclists only at a safe distance of 2 m (6ft). Furthermore, the campaign aims at pointing out to cyclists how they should move in the way that would not put their safety and the safety of other participants in the traffic at risk.
The institution responsible for the campaign is the Poreč Tourist Board with the support of the Istria County Tourist Board and local tourist boards from the Poreč region. Adria Bike, the famous organiser and promoter of cycling races and other cycling events, and the Hendrih-Feldbauer Agency are managing the campaign.
