Sykle til jobben or Cycle to Work

Few days back I got an opportunity to participate in the programme SKYLE TIL JOBBEN which means cycle to work action in Oslo, which was inaugurated by Norwegian transportation minister. "Cycling to work" is the largest action with the purpose to motivate as many as possible to be physically active regardless of their age. The concept is that -peers will compete against each other and against other workplaces, to be the most physically active during the two-month period action. For providing me with this opportunity, I would heartly like to thank Marianna Billing , information officer of Trygg trafikk which is working for road safety programmes in Norway with the cooperation of Norwegian Public Road Administration, National Police Directorate and The Directorate for health and Social Welfare.Here I have posted some of the pictures of the event .
