Cycling is the most popular summer sport. The Akimat of Almaty supports this sport, so the whole city is equipped with special bike paths. The largest one is located along street Abay, and the smaller ones are scattered by small vessels throughout the city. It is especially convenient to ride in large parks, such as the Park of the First President or Gorky Park, and many modern offices are equipped with parking lots for bicycles.
Taking care about everything in the city
The bike is ecologically. Surely you have heard about this sad situation with the Almaty smog and dropped a quiet tear looking at the city from the tops of the surrounding mountains? Due to its special location surrounded by the mountains of the Zailiysky Alatau, the wind does not carry smog out of the city and all gases accumulate in the sky over the southern capital. Therefore, every time when you do not use the car, but get on an eco-friendly bike, the air of the city becomes a little cleaner.
City bicycle rental system
In addition to the track system, the city has an extensive bicycle rental system. There are many private rental points and a large municipal bike rental AlmatyBike. The latter is especially pleased with more than 200 stations and 1280 bicycles, a convenient payment system using a personalized card, a symbolic price and even a special application. Our government is making every effort to maintain the health of citizens.
