From now on, anyone can take a bike and drive from Troyeshchyna to European square and in opposite direction - just free biking or to get to work. This is the first bicycle lane of this level in Kiev. With heads of relevant departments and utilities we had a ride and made a review. We had overcome 22km distance in less than half an hour in a saunter mode. Bike lane from Troyeshchyna to the center is highlighted in a separate line with no cars, so cyclists are in safe. Part of the route runs along the Trukhaniv Island, which is limited to entering by car and have a 20 km\h speed limit.” - said Vitaly Klitschko.
